When I moved from New England to the South, the one thing I was hoping I wouldn’t lose was the seasons. There’s something so right and necessary about an external switch-up every few months — it always seems to come exactly when we need it, doesn’t it? The flip of the calendar or the change in the weather so often mirrors exactly the change I’m craving on the inside, in my life or in my relationships.
And so it is with fall. After a whirlwind season of Summer Love – trying new things, recreating memories, traveling, wringing every minute of joy and excitement out of those long, hot days — I’m ready for something different. Something quieter, and cozier, and simpler. When the Southern Weddings gals got together to chat about what we wanted to focus on in these next few months (and what we imagined y’all would want to focus on), those are the words we kept coming back to. And thus, “Cozy Fall” was born.
Whatever season of life you’re in — jumping back into the college hustle, juggling full-time work and the full-time work of wedding planning, or making time for date nights around managing a household and holding down a job — we are with you. For the next few months, our goal is to help you simplify, not just for the sake of simplicity but so that you can make room for what matters most to you. We’ll help you to get cozy and reconnect with the one you love. We’ll make date nights easy for you. And we’ll provide lots of inspiration along the way from folks who’ve got things figured out – at least a little bit, at least for right now!
As much as a pumpkin spice latte, a walk through crunchy leaves, or a slice of pecan pie, we hope this is just what you’ve been craving. We’re eager to come alongside you in this season, encouraging you and learning from you. Use the hashtag #CozyFallYall through November 30 to share your fall. We’ll be doing the same! As an added bonus, we’ll choose one hashtag user every week to win a cozy fall goodie on us – just a little added motivation to share and share alike.
Here’s to simplicity, coziness, and deep love — all beautiful things to be savored for the next few months. We hope you’ll join us!
