It’s arrived here on the West Coast… What you ask? Oh you know – that time of year where we get upwards of 20 rain-filled days at a time! Sure, sure it makes everything green. But it also makes everything just a little bit grey too. Yet I can’t help but feel a bit excited too – this is the time of year that I think many of us relish creature comforts just a little bit more. It’s the season where coziness and sweet treats are given more priority than any other. It’s also a time when we come together more often as families for various gatherings – here in Canada, we’re already celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend.

One of my favorite things at a family gathering has got to be playing board games. My family is fiercely competitive and a win at Scrabble or any other game is followed by jubilant cheers from the winner, possibly some dancing around the living room – while the “loser” is forced to watch this gloating with at least a reasonable amount of good cheer!

Family gatherings aside I always see autumn as a time to make the home just a bit more bright and to add a touch of fun here or there. From pumpkin scented candles to candy corn scented soap there is no shortage of great items to be found.

While the wind is howling outside and showers are falling – I do always remind myself too, that spring and summer aren’t really that far off!
