Fall is by far my favorite season and just thinking about it gets me so excited! Although fall in California is not "traditional" (weather-wise), I have been pinning like crazy to my "fall" board on Pinterest, which has given me some new ideas of what to do in the upcoming months!
Go to a pumpkin patch
Besides a field trip that I took in 3rd grade, I have never been to a pumpkin patch. Instead, I just pick up a pumpkin at my local Trader Joe's, which is super convenient, but is not the same as going to a pumpkin patch. It's so fun to try and pick "the chosen one"!
Go apple picking.
Apple picking is the perfect way to spend a crisp fall afternoon. It's super fun, and you end up with tons of apples that are perfect for this apple pie or these caramel apples! Yum!
Carve a pumpkin.
I'm pretty sure that everyone carves a pumpkin each year, but have you ever tried a design other than the typical face? How about a Vineyard Vines whale? Instead of carving a pumpkin, you could decorate it- with glitter!
I don't think that there are enough days in fall for me to be able to make every recipe that I want to! Seriously, there are so many yummy recipes that are perfect for fall. I have a bunch of recipes pinned here- most of them involve pumpkin, so yum! Trader Joe's (is it obvious that I love that place?) makes a super easy and yummy pumpkin muffin/bread mix that I always make each fall!
Listen to "fall" music.
When I was in elementary school, everyone would dress up on Halloween and we would parade around the playground by grade level and show off our costumes. In the background, they had Halloween music; the song that I remember is The Monster Mash (classic). So whether your fall music is The Monster Mash or Taylor Swift's Red album (it sounds exactly how fall feels!) play your fave songs that remind you of autumn and jam out.
What is your favorite thing to do in the fall?
