Tomorrow is the first day of fall, which means it’s time to close summer’s doors and embrace the upcoming season. To celebrate, here’s one of my favorite seasonal veggies — beets. I’ll admit, I love beets mostly for their rich, luscious hue. (They taste nice too, though.) What’s your cool-weather produce pick?

Caramel is the ultimate fall delicacy in my world. I imagine walking through a harvest-inspired craft fair or autumnal festival with the scent of kettle corn wafting through the air as I sinfully nibble on a caramel apple (or better yet, a scalding hot hand pie).

Everyone is talking about coconut oil — the benefits, the uses, the reasons to have it at home, at work, etc. I’m an advocate for the superfood and love having it in my medicine cabinet as well as in my pantry. Beyond that, I can’t get enough of coconut water and milk, especially in my smoothies. So let’s just give a round of applause for coconuts! What’s your favorite way to use this fruit?

As an experienced traveler, I never tire of the map and globe decor trend. Every time I go to an antique store, I scour through the bin of old maps to see if I can find any that have some significance to me or anyone I know. For me, maps offer up memories that found artwork just can’t. I look at South America and instantly think of my Chilean backpacking trip to Santiago, the Andes Mountains and Valparaiso last year. South Carolina reminds me of my time at College of Charleston and my first year away from home. Give me a world map and I’ll drift into a land of nostalgia.

When it comes to school, the old saying goes: “The tassel is worth the hassle.” I know our younger readers aren’t jumping up and down for their first day back to class, so here’s a trendier twist on cap tassels to make it seem less daunting. Just remember, you’re one day closer to walking across that stage!

Nothing takes me back to those innocent childhood years quite like blowing bubbles … or trying to catch them.

“How wonderful yellow is. It stands for the sun,” said 19th-century painter Vincent van Gogh. And he’s so right. Nothing is more bright, beautiful and summery than yellow. So on this overcast Monday, I plan on basking in this bold, lemony hue.

You all love the nautical look just as much as some of us HGTV.com staffers. And after a beautiful and relaxing weekend on the water, I just couldn’t resist this week’s mood board pick. Happy Monday!
