There’s just something about fall that gives me all the warm feelings. It always seems like a fresh start, and I get that “back to school” feeling that’s almost like pressing the “reset” button. I love getting to break out my cozy sweaters and boots, shopping for the perfect fall-scented candles that make my house smell divine, going to pumpkin patches with friends, and spending all the sweet time I can with family (while we make the most delicious fall foods). It makes my heart happy to think of all the fun activities and traditions that come along with this magical season.
As fall is finally starting to show up here in Fayetteville, I’m ready to kick it off with all the things I always say I’m going to do, but never quite get around to. I always have grand plans to carve pumpkins and bake goodies, but before I can even blink it’s winter and there’s a whole different list of activities that I want to accomplish. This year I’m determined to cross every single item off of my list before the end of fall, and I’ll be sharing some of these items here as they’re completed!
