I can’t get over how nice the weather has been this week. Fall is in the air!
Don’t worry… if you are in a part of the country (or world!) that is currently experiencing temperatures warmer than what we deem “sweater weather”, you can still participate in all things Autumn because the season officially started this week.
Last year I shared my Fall Bucket List and thought it would be fun to continue the tradition annually.
It has easily become my favorite season living in Michigan!
Here is what I am looking forward to most this year:
• apple picking
I still have yet to do this in my lifetime.
I couldn’t tell you why.
• all the pumpkin things
This is obvious. If you share my obsession, feel free to tag me in your photos (@hwglamour) and use the hashtag #givemeallthepumpkinthings.
I love seeing what’s out there that I might be missing!
• fall scents
Already all over it, my friends.
Still loving the smell of these wallflowers throughout our house.
• hot apple cider
This is a given that will happen sooner than later.
Trip to a cider mill, anyone?
• visiting a haunted house
One of the first things Scott and I did after we moved up to the Detroit area was visit one of the scariest haunted houses in America.
I hate to love them and actually turn into a huge baby when I’m inside.
I guess I just enjoy the thrill!
• making pumpkin pie
We made pumpkin pies for a Thanksgiving dessert last year and I already can’t wait to indulge. YUM!
• boots and scarves
Part of the agreement to move up north between Scott and I included a free pass for me to slowly acquire a cute winter wardrobe.
(Throwback to blonde hair and hotel living two years ago!)
My absolute favorite thing to wear all year long has to be tall (or combat) boots, skinny jeans (or leggings), a big oversized sweater and scarves.
• holidays with family
For the past two Thanksgivings, we were fortunate enough to have Scott’s father and step-mother in town with us to celebrate the holiday. This year, my mother will most likely be joining us and it’s comforting to know family will be around!
• decorating pumpkins
I swear I’m going to make this happen this year.
Whether we go the old fashioned carving route or I get paint and glitter happy and pull something from my Fall Pinterest board, I fully plan on getting into the season with pumpkin crafts.
• crunching leaves
Don’t act like you don’t to it. I shared my love to crunch leaves as one of the things that I get embarrassingly excited over and I’m not ashamed of it. Go on and fall, leaves, I’m waiting for you!
and last, but definitely not least (speaking of leaves)…
• fall foliage
The tops of a lot of our neighborhood trees are already turning red, and my heart gets a little giddy every time I see a yellow tree on a drive.
Growing up in Florida, I never got to experience “real” seasons and it has to be one of the best things about living here!
