Welcome Fall! + Season To-Do List

Hello, hello! I promise I am still here and haven't quite abandoned this space! I do know that things have been quiet around here the past month, though, and that has been due to me trying to find a new balance with work + school responsibilities. It has been a bit crazy! I am enjoying school though, despite it being challenging, and work has been alright for the most part. Hopefully I will get the hang of my new schedule soon and figure out where I can fit some blogging time into it!

I just wanted to check-in, say hi, and take a moment to celebrate the official beginning of fall today! I love this time of year so much! The changing leaves, cooler weather, cute layers and boots, and coziness! It is simply wonderful. While I am excited for fall to begin, California hasn't quite caught up and it has still been in the 80s and 90s the past few weeks. Hoping things will cool down soon, but for now I will live vicariously through the lovely photos above :)

Since this is one of my favorite seasons, I thought I would make a little list of things I would like to do to enjoy this time to its fullest!

+ Visit a pumpkin patch
+ Host & organize a "Friendsgiving"
+ Bake pumpkin bread
+ Go on a mountain or nature adventure, hopefully to Yosemite
+ Treat myself to a new pair of boots
+ Make chili
+ Have a pumpkin carving party
+ Dress up for Halloween
+ Do something to celebrate Halloween (have a party, go to a party, or something!)
+ Have a reading + coffee date with myself or a friend
+ Stay home, make a cozy meal, and watch movies one night

What do you want to do this fall? Do you have any traditions for this time of year? Is fall your favorite season or do you prefer a different one?
