October is the month that fall FINALLY arrives for us here in Oklahoma. Up to this point, it’s still basically summer. So to say that I’m excited for October to be here is an understatement! Let all the fall things begin 🙂
For me, that’s everything from visiting pumpkin patches with the kids, friends gatherings in our backyards, to fall baking and fun and creative fall recipes. Anyone else feel like you come alive this time of year?

The Best Fall Candles
I have this weird tradition where I wait until the first cold, cloudy or rainy fall day to light my pumpkin candle. Tell me I’m not alone! Like, it basically has to be the most perfect, fall-vibes weather for me to do it. And then it happens every day through the winter!
If you feel like indulging in this, err, “unique” tradition with me, then here are some of my favorite fall candles!
