autumn in LA


Well, autumn is here (that’s what my calendar says anyway). I’m still holding out for those cooler temps and colored leaves, but gosh darn it if I won’t celebrate like we actually have seasons in Los Angeles. I love the summertime but am always ready for a change of season when fall creeps around – it always comes at the perfect time for me. I’m all about the seasons and you KNOW I’m all about the holidays, so these next few months should be good ones. I’ll wrap up photos from the last of my summer adventures soon, but right now, I’m gon’ go ahead and leap right into my fall bucket list because I’m also ALL ABOUT THOSE LISTS

  • visit an apple orchard (and eat apple cider donuts while we’re at it)
  • craft this year’s Halloween costumes
  • bake pumpkin bread (and a pie)
  • make chocolate-caramel apples
  • carve pumpkins (and maybe make it to an actual pumpkin patch this year)
  • take evening walks through the neighborhood with coffee in hand
  • buy a new fall scented candle
  • make homemade bread and pizza (it’s been a while)
  • plan a Halloween event (outdoor movie, Knott’s Scary Farm, Haunted Hay ride…!)
  • finish (and relish) the last books of the Harry Potter series

These things make the list every year, and you bet I make every effort to do them every year. Basically spending a lot of time baking and crafting and overloading my senses with all things fall (maybe a camping or anniversary trip thrown in for good measure). And even though I basically do this already, I want to take (and post to Instagram) at least one photo a day. I did that last October and really loved not only having a record of the season, but also actively seeking out and appreciating those small, treasured moments.
