Happy Fall - My Favorite Things About Autumn


Fall is my absolute favorite season! From the crisp cool morning and evening air, pumpkin recipes, apple cider to the fun family festivities, I love everything about fall.

We have a few traditions for fall in our family and we are all looking forward to adding new ones with our move to a cooler climate. We are planning a trip to pick apples. Apple cider is one of my absolute favorite fall things. I'm not picky, I love it cold or hot. Check out my recipe for Hot Caramel Apple Cider

Our daughter loves pumpkins almost as much as I love pumpkin recipes. We will be headed out to the pumpkin patch soon to pick out some carving and pie pumpkins. This year I am going to attempt to make my own pumpkin puree. Fresh and homemade is always better.



Even as an adult I still find so much excitement and fun in Halloween. Enjoying it through the eyes of my daughter make it even more enjoyable. We are looking forward to the family fall fest in our neighborhood and taking our daughter trick or treating at our new neighbors homes.

The colors of the season and the changing colors of the leaves make getting outdoors even more enjoyable. This year will be especially enjoyable being the first year in a long time experiencing seasons. I enjoy changing up our home decor with the seasons as well. I'm happy to share my printables, download a free Halloween Scary Skull Trick or Treat printable or free Thanksgiving Printable (There is Always Something to be Thankful For).


Thanksgiving is the highlight of fall for my family. We have SOOOO SO much to be thankful for. There is the Thanksgiving dinner to love too. Even being gluten free we have found ways to keep the traditional dishes without missing the gluten. That includes the Day after Thanksgiving Leftover Pie, easy to make in both regular and gluten free versions.

What are your favorite things about Autumn? Do you love the fall season as much as I do?

  5. I love fall because of the smell of the crisp air and all the pretty colors the leaves change. The family get together are the biggest reason though. Thanks for sharing.
