In The Navy


Well another school year has begun and fall is quickly creeping up on us.  The early mornings are a little crisp and the sun is setting a little earlier each night. As a family, we had a great summer break but are happy to be working on establishing the regular school routine. It is the first full day of school today and my older son is starting Grade 1. His little brother is saying that he misses his big brother but I can see that he is also enjoying his independent free play and the individual attention that he is receiving.

As we transition to the cooler months I am loving the return of darker colours. In particular I am admiring the mood and sophistication of Navy Blue. It is popping up all over in both fashion and home decor. Check out some of my favorite uses of this classic colour.

Another one of my favorite perks of fall....Pumpkin flavoured treats! What are some of your favorite things about fall?

Hope you are all settling back into your routines nicely.
