“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”
― Lauren DeStefano, Wither
I've been waiting all summer to do a Fall Friday favorites post and I just can't wait any longer! I love love love fall! I love the weather, the clothes, the leaves, the pumpkins, the apples, the holidays! I love decorating for fall. I love it all!
1. Fall decorating

2. Apple picking
This has become our little family tradition since Nick was born. We have quite a few apple orchards around us, but we have a special one we keep going back to. It's not too big, not too small, and has good quality apples. They also have some farm animals for the kids to feed, and a little hay bale maze. Oh, and apple cider donuts too. YUUMMM. I probably have about 1000 apple picking pictures, but I will only force you to look at a few. :)
I have always loved Halloween. Trick or treating, costumes, Halloween parties, and of course CANDY (and maybe just a couple tricks)! I also love to watch "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown." I was so disappointed when Nick had no interest in watching it last year. Well, maybe this year!!

4. The changing colors of the trees
Fall is such a beautiful season here in the northeast. It is absolutely breathtaking when the leaves change colors. Oranges, reds, yellows...they are all beautiful. We love to take a drive through the Adirondack mountains or out to Vermont when the leaves are at their peak. You know, "leaf peeping" (BTW, I always thought that was such a silly expression!). Nature's beauty can be astounding!

5. Pumpkin craving and all things pumpkin
Pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin donuts, pumpkin cheesecake. YES to all of it! Although I don't really crave pumpkin any other time of the year, I can't get enough of it once fall hits! And what is more fun than carving pumpkins?? OK, scooping out the guts is kind of gross, but I love the finished product!
So there you have it friends! Some of my favorite things about fall. What are some of your favorites? Do you have any special plans for the fall season? Any fun family traditions? I'd love to hear all about it!
