Shhh…I’m going to let you in on a secret. For a long time I didn’t “get” fall. Fall and I were like two awkward pre-teens at a school dance. Since then, some time has passed and we’ve grown some. We actually do more than just get-along and the regular one-step two step. I mean, we “get down”. We have fun! I may just be falling for fall.

- Wagon Pulling
- Fall Fashion
- Apple Everything
- Farm Visits
- Hot Chocolate
Took us a while but we finally got around to apple picking. I can’t tell you how long I’ve been thinking about this but, I am glad that we finally got to make it happen. I think I’m going to have to tack this on as one of our fall traditions.
Not sure what that’s about but kids and wagons go hand in hand. It doesn’t matter if I’m pulling or they’re pulling, it’s all in good fun. I’m just happy that they can still fit in the wagons…for now.
I’m still the “sunshine lady” but, I love playing with textures and patterns during the fall months. This is a new revelation for me. So I hope you are enjoying the flurry of fall fashion on the blog. Of course, the fall season is also prime hat weather. Yay for hats and fabulous coats.
So far I’ve enjoyed apple donuts, apple cider, apple pie, homemade apple sauce, apple butter…Oh my, apple everything. And I’m not tired of it yet.
Visiting farms nearby is a definite fall must. Of course, corn mazes, pumpkin patches and petting zoos are the real allure.
Fall weather begets hot chocolate, wouldn’t you agree? Really good hot chocolate is an indulgence for sure but it’s oh so good.
It’s taken me a while but after 13 years, I think I’m finally starting to “fall” for fall. What? It takes me a while to adjust.
And how can we talk about fall without mentioning Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving and Christmas are absolutely my favorite times of year. A few years back when I was on hospital bed rest, I asked my mom to cook the Thanksgiving meal and bring it to the hospital. This was no small task considering that she lives 1600 miles away!
I would say that Thanksgiving is my most memorable to date.
What activities are you getting into or what gets you in the fall spirit? Are there any fall activities that you think I should try?
By the way, are you following along on Instagram? It’s a great way to get a behind the scenes sneak peak of my day to day.
