I LOVE FALL!!! Most southerners will tell you they do, after the summers we endure down south of the Mason Dixon Line. There are so many fun things that come with the season and we wanted to share a few of them along with some tips and tricks to make your football tailgate the best and easiest on campus!
Let's start with the quintessential fall item....THE PUMPKIN! How gorgeous are these white tones with each other? And super easy too!!
and what says fall better than football? Something about the combo of food, friends and fun all being in the same place at once makes my heart skip a beat. the clothes, the shoes, the sounds and the food cannot compare to any other season of the year.
In my favorite college town of Oxford, style is of upmost importance to those gracing The Grove. The best advice though on these sacred Saturdays would be COMFORTABLE shoes! there is honestly nothing worse than sore, blistered feet on a hot and long football weekend. So, if fashionable shoes matter to you, let me suggest this little gem.....
This little stick fits easily in your lipstick bag or even in your pocket. And boy will your heels or tops of your toes thank you for it! Trust me here....these feet have walked enough football games to know.
The last, but not least, most iconic fall function can be nothing else but THE County FAIR!!! There is no smell like a corndog and fried oreos in October. Nothing in this world is worth more than a $40 gold fish in a glass bowl that will more than likely pass away within 10 days. And no smile is compared to a child on a merry go-round that waves at each passing. My family loves the fair if only for the joy it brings my husband alone! we go for the people watching, the laughter and joy that comes watching our littles weave through the crowds to find their next ride.
so, this fall take the time to relish in the smells, the air, and the colors of the season. but most of all, take each moment as a gift and reminder to cherish each day that we are given. That each season is God's way of showing us His creativity and joy He finds in His creations made to bring us closer to Him and our families.
