Monthly Musings

 


Happy Thursday, friends! I'm linking up with Holly and Patty for this blog post; because I'm posting it early in the morning, I'm short on time and am only answering a couple of them. I'll jump right in!


My favorite fall tradition these days takes place on Halloween night. We sit outside in our driveway and hand out candy, so that our dogs will stay calm. We always use that night to visit with neighbors, as well. It's always a fun night!


When the boys were little, our favorite thing to do was to visit a pumpkin patch that's local. We would have a bonfire, take a hayride, and leave with pumpkins. We always did this with friends, and it was so much fun! The place we loved to visit was Tom's Farm. (Here's an old blurry picture from those years. You can see that it was open field with spots set up like this for bonfires. We would roast hot dogs and s'mores, the kids would play in the many areas available, they'd play cornhole, then we'd go on a hayride to the pumpkin patch to pick ours to take home.)



My favorite fall fashion pieces are things that are oversized and comfy. Think sweaters, sweatshirts, ponchos...those are always what I lean toward. I suppose this say about me that I love things that are a little "bohemian" in the way of personal style. 






My favorite fall movies are the Nora Ephron movies! They're lovely and familiar and cozy, and I watch them over and over again. Think You've Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally, Father of the Bride, etc. I love the Falling in Love Hallmark channel movies, and I watch Gilmore Girls on repeat. 


What's your favorite part about fall? I'd love to hear! Thanks for reading this late in time blog post today, friends. Love to all!

  3. I love sitting outside with the neighbors, too, on Halloween night, handing out candy. I don´t do this every year, but many. It is a great time to catch up, snack on the yummiest of foods (candy!) and get to see all the neighborhood kids.
