autumn winds - inspriring spaces

Autumn has always been and will always be my favorite time of year. It's the anticipated season of change where cooler weather is something to be embraced - especially if you live in the Arizona desert.

As a woman of The Simple Home, fall represents space to slow down and reflect forward. Fall engages opportunity for me to seek out those quiet and inspiring spaces of heart, mind and home. Baking, soup making, and color changes move me to breathe and sigh and gaze.

I love even the anticipation of the anticipation of this season coming upon me. My good Portlander friend, Melissa does too. She's a rock star of a designer and creator of the best design blog - The Inspired Room. Her motto is: "When life inspires our home,our home will inspire our life."

One of my favorite beauty pause moments is to meander through Melissa's blog. Currently, she's inspiring women with what she's calling Fall Nesting. This thought - fall nesting - has caused me to say, "Honey, would you help me rearrange the family room furniture?"

In case you're in the mood to change things around abit - check out Melissa's ideas here. Within the next few weeks, I'll post some of my autumn additions . . . but in the meantime, I'm creating sanctuary here.
