Fall, glorious, wonderful fall!
Out of all the seasons, fall is definitely my favorite. With the end of August just around the corner, the anticipation of the arrival of all things fall is starting to build. I promised myself I would wait until after Labor Day to decorate and until the 22nd of September to finish our summer bucket list, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been anxiously pinning pumpkin spice everything recipes since the end of July.
Today’s post is all about my fall favorites. A chance to share with you the things I love the most about the soon to arrive season. I feel like this post could get a little bit out of control, because there is so much to love, but I am going to try to keep some control.
Fall chalk boards
Last year I fell in love with chalk board art and fall boards were definitely some of my favorites to create.
Pumpkin spice everything
Totally stereotypical, but something about that pumpkin spice gets me every stinking time. In fact I have something along these lines already planned for the month of October. But you’ll just have to wait and see what that is.
Every year a neighboring town holds The Maple Leaf Festival complete with a big car show and swap meet. It is already wrote on our calendar for 2016!
Last year I purchased more plaid items than I have the entire rest of my life combined. I hope to grow my collection even more this year.
Sunsets in the fall are hands down the best. Something about the changing of the season not only makes for pretty leaves, but the skies are full of color too.
Nothing says fall like busting out the boots. I have already been keeping my eyes on a pair that I hope to add to my collection this year.
What is fall without Halloween costumes?! I am not the mom who sews hand-made costumes every year, but we don’t buy them off the rack either. I can’t wait to see what we come up with this year and if Emily decides to be Minnie Mouse for the 4th time in a row.
Corn maze trips
Every year we make at least one corn maze visit and we always have so much fun. In the years past we have always taken the early exit but I am hoping that this is the year the girls want to do the full maze.
I’ll admit I am not a huge seasonal decorator outside of Christmas. I am pretty sure I make up for any lack of decorations we have the rest of the year with our 5+ Christmas trees alone. However come fall even I find myself decorating with leaves, pumpkins, and anything else that goes.
Our thankful tree
About 3 years ago I started a thankful tree with the girls. Every day I have them write down one thing they are thankful for. It is so much fun to watch our tree grow full of leaves and see the things that the girls choose. They have grown to be much more thoughtful through the years.
Family, I saved the best for last. My absolute favorite thing about fall is all the time we spend together. So much to go to, do, see, and experience as a family. The memories are priceless.
