Good morning and happy Mabon, the holiday that represents the beginning of the Autumn Equinox which is my favorite season and time of the year. If you’re not familiar with the Mabon holiday, please refer to my older article titled, “Celebrating Mabon” which I posted on September 7th.

   It officially begins at 6:45 Pm tonight so get ready and enjoy the new season!

Happy Autumn Everyone!

Celebrating Mabon

Hello everyone, I’m sorry I haven’t posted a lot this past week but I was really under the weather. Now I’m feeling better and excited about writing again. 

Most of you who’ve been reading my blog for awhile now, you’ve probably heard me talking about when of my good friends, Sarah Mushenheim whose site is lifewithlilred.com. I met her, pretty much the first moment I started my blog and we’ve done some fun collaborations and today is another example. Sarah asked me to be a guest blogger on her page again which I always love doing, and the topic is about Autumn since we are approaching it very soon. A lot of you may know this but autumn is my favorite time of the year. Besides Halloween, which is what I look forward to the most, everything about this time of the year I love. With that said, my first post I wrote for her is called, “Celebrating Mabon.” I really enjoyed writing this because I knew it would be a unique topic. Here’s my article from Sarah’s page. Please enjoy and make sure to check out Sarah’s site. Also stay tuned for more collaborations with her.

From Lifewithlilred.com:

Hello! Today, we are going to hear a little something from my darling friend, Carlie, over at Bombshell on Celebrating Mabon. As you will read in this post, Mabon is a Pagan nature holiday that gives thanks to all things fall and it’s something that Carlie enjoys participating in. Carlie will also be back later on this month with more fall and Halloween fun so definitely keep it posted, because she’s awesome! ❤

   Autumn is my favorite time of year for many reasons. The weather starts to get cooler, I love seeing the leaves changing beautiful colors, Halloween aka Samhain, and celebrating “Mabon”.

   Like Samhain, Mabon is a Pagan nature based holiday that represents the beginning of the Autumnal Equinox. It also signifies the second harvest of the calendar and promotes equality and balance. It’s a very positive time of the year where a lot of people celebrate the changing of the seasons, create their own little traditions, and enjoy nature of course.

   I hope you all are looking forward to the beginning of Autumn/Mabon as much as I am. This year the Autumn Equinox begins Friday, September 21st. And, if you want to celebrate Mabon in any way, it goes from September 21st to Saturday, September 29th!

 

Thank you Sarah. I love you girl!

Happy October!!!

I’m so excited that today is the first day of October, my favorite month. Yesterday I already started decorating my house for Halloween which of course is my favorite holiday. My husband and I are going to the Halloween store today to see what new goodies we can find to add to our decoration collection, besides seeing all the cool costumes and accessories. I can’t wait to go. The pictures below are of a new decoration I bought last month of a skeleton bride and groom. When you turn it on, it lights up so beautifully with the purple lights.

   I have a few bride and groom skeleton pieces including  my bride and groom salt and pepper my awesome mom bought my husband and me years ago when we will first got engaged years ago. I can never have enough skulls and skeleton decor in my house. Below is another one of my awesome bride and groom skeleton pieces.

For those who don’t know this already about me, Autumn/Mabon is my absolute FAVORITE SEASON!  I love seeing the different colors the leaves change and one day I plan on going to the east coast specifically to see the “changing of the leaves” over there.

I want to wish everyone happy October first and hope you all enjoy this fantastic month as much as I will!

XOXO CARLIE
