Let’s Talk, Fall Favorites

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.

Fall-Favorites
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.

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.

Maple Leaf

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

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. 

Halloween

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.

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. 

Fall decorations

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.

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

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.

    I’m so excited for fall. I’m ready for cooler temperatures and being outside without sweating. I can’t wait for all of the fun things we can do during those months.

    • Oh me too. I am so DONE with sweating to death. It’s close friend, hang in there.

  • Amy Smith

    I can’t wait for fall! Is it bad that I already have our fall family picture outfits picked out?

  • Oh what wonderful fall joy! You are putting me in the mood, friend! And that is hard to do with an island girl ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Lol! I can only imagine. I think I would be depressed without the distinct seasons though. As much as winter gets me down, I like having variety.

  • I love all the things you posted about fall! I love to decorate for fall with anything pumpkins and leaves, but k don’t do a ton. Pumpkin coffee and lattes are out around here but I can’t quite bring myself to get one just yet. I’m still a bit in summer mode around here ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have a great Monday!!

    • I know, I have yet to get a PSL myself. It seems like it should be in the 60’s and September the first time I get one. Hopefully soon. You too!

  • Fall is great, until it gets too cold! I love your yellow hat!

    • Would you believe I made it?! Because I totally did. I used to knit A LOT!

      • Do you have the pattern? I’m a knitter too!

        • Ummmmm….. I got it off Ravelry like FOREVER ago. I bet I could find it again or remember it if I thought really hard. I’ll let you know if I come up with it. It was a hat and matching gloves. By far the hardest thing I have ever made.

  • Meghan Flinn

    I love fall for the same reasons! I just created by bucket list (sharing this week) and now I can’t wait!!!

    • Haha! I KNEW bucket lists would start popping up soon! I actually made and scheduled mine a couple of weeks ago but I didn’t schedule it until the 21st of September. We need almost the entire summer to finish up our summer list ;).

  • Love the idea of a thankful tree! And I’m a pumpkin spice girl too..except for PSL’s from starbucks..I’m the 1% who doesn’t care for them. Hope you have a super week Beth!

    Shelly||The Queen in Between

    • I bet Carly would LOVE a thankful tree! Just grag a twig from somewhere stick it in a pot and add some cute leaves. Thank you, you too Shelly!

  • chall1018

You are so great at chalk art. I love all the things that you love about fall and canโ€™t wait to do this season along side you my sweet friend!

    • I have hardly had any time to do chalk art this year and it is making me so sad. Hopefully soon. I am working like crazy to take a TON of time away from the blog soon. Thank you so much. It is going to be the best fall yet!

  • I just can’t wait for fall! Give me pumpkin everything!

  • Yup, love all these things too! That last picture is great!!

    • I still smile looking at it too. Can’t wait to do it again!

  • OH Beth, this post makes me SO happy!! I love love love fall!! It is just my favorite time of year and I’m counting down the days until I can decorate the house… t-minus 3 days!! Haha.

    • So, SO close girl. I need to start locating my bins and getting things prepped.

  • Lizzie Simantz

    So excited for Fall too!! I’m also trying to enjoy the rest of summer though ๐Ÿ™‚ I need some more plaid in my life this year. We incorporated a thankful pumpkin last year but I would love to see your tree! Did you post about it last year?

  • So many fun things to do in the fall! Aria and I are impatiently waiting to bake things.

    • Yes bake ALL the things. I have pinned my heart out and I am SO ready.

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Summer was SO good to us, Fall has big shoes to fill. BUT, it’s a season that’s near and dear to my heart for so many reasons. I can’t wait to dig into all the goodness (birthdays! anniversary! all the things pumpkin spice! sunsets here are finally worth a glance!)!!!

    • Fall always has big shoes to fill but it never seems to disappoint. I love your sunset photos that you share in the fall. They are so dreamy.

  • I’m not quite ready for fall yet but I’m loving your fall favorites!!!

    • Thank you. I am not 100% ready yet either. We still need to go on our summer vacation!

  • Yes! I love Fall too, and we do a Thankful Pumpkin ๐Ÿ™‚ And corn mazes so fun!

    • I have never heard of a thankful pumpkin before. I need to look this up. Maybe we’ll switch up our routine :).

  • Wow!! Youre not kidding about that sunset, gorgeous! Im right there with you on boots and plaid, pumpkin spice and decorations ๐Ÿ™‚

    • They are just so much prettier in the fall! Must be science or something ๐Ÿ˜›.

  • I can’t wait for fall!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love you loves. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Whitney Jordan

    Yay for Fall!! I can’t wait to pick out coordinating Halloween costumes with the kids, eat pumpkin flavored everything (like those delicious strudel muffins of yours!!), wear plaid and boots and go to some fun festivals. I’m also hoping to get some family pictures taken when the fall leaves are looking lovely

    • It sounds like you have the perfect fall plans friend! I am so ready too. But first, vacation!

  • That orange sky has me wishing it was Fall right this minute. But then again, when am I not wishing that?

    • Amen, AMEN! I am thinking sunsets on the beach are going to be killer this time of year friend. At least we have that to look forward too.
