We have barely started October and already I had to turn my heater on! Northwest Ohio got a bit chilly this weekend and I even saw a few snowflakes on Saturday! Luckily it was just a few and not enough to say it snowed, but the idea that there were a few flakes that hit the ground is kind of upsetting. I truly LOVE fall but I absolutely HATE what follows. The idea of skipping fall and possibly going straight into winter scares me. I am definitely not keen on the whole winter thing. Luckily the temps should pick up a little this week I am just hoping that by the time trick r treat rolls around it will warm up so the kids don't freeze to death. 

Although it was beginning to look a lot like Christmas with the few flakes in the air I got to decorate the house a bit for fall. I wasn't about to let jack frost steal my thunder so I lit a few pumpkin spiced candles and set the mood for fall indoors. Looking for some fall inspiration I also stumbled upon this Apple Harvest Muffin recipe and I think I am in LOVE <3 . Best part is it can fit into the 21 Day Fix!
