Goodbye Summer....Hello Fall
Well summer is almost over, not sure where the time has gone. This year our summer weather wasn't all that great but we did have a fairly nice July and August. I have a feeling our fall weather is going to be really nice, giving us a few more months of sunshine. I love the fall, it is my most favorite season. I also love to decorate for the fall. There are so many colors to choose from ......yellow, orange, green, tan and brown are all inspiring colors for fall decorating. Country Living magazine on-line http://www.countryliving.com/homes/how-to-get-the-look/decorating-for-fall-1005 recommends extending the excitement and pleasure you feel at this change of season by creating a cozy fall-inspired setting to enjoy outdoors.
Well this is my first attempt at blogging! It's been quite a year and a half for me. I retired from the Federal Government after 34 years and in October 2006, I started a new retail store called "French Vanilla Home and Garden". In July 2007 I launched my store's e-commerce website and now this....blogging! Who would have thought! Has it been challenging?....a bit, stressful?.... some days, rewarding?....most definitely! I love owning my own retail store, filling it with things I love and helping my customers find that perfect item or gift! I am enjoying this new phase of my life and look forward to learning new things, having new adventures and making new friends along the way!
