Autumn always reminds me of my life in Santa Barbara. Although spring and summer are pure bliss in this stunning coastal town, something about the current season there is just a little extra special. Fall reminds me of the school year starting, which meant a new house to decorate with my girlfriends, new opportunities for celebrations and the most magical sunsets with hues of purple and pinks. The season reminds me of a Halloween consisting of at least three nights, weekend brunches, endless conversations and sitting beach side in a bikini in early December. Oh yeah, and those ocean sunrises never seemed to disappoint.
