Happy Fall, friends! I’m excited to share my fall fun list with you today. September marks the start of my favorite time of the year (as noted here, all of my favorite months end with “ber”). Fall in New England is unmatched. From the covered bridges to the charming county fairs and the white steeples dotting the landscape as the leaves turn. From the White Mountains to the Berkshires, the Adirondacks to the Green Mountains – there is so much beauty to behold. It is such a magical place to be. I can hardly contain my excitement on the first crisp day each August, calling it my “fall preview”. By the time Labor Day rolls around, I’m happy to swap my sundresses for sweaters and crisp lemonade for warm apple cider.
Today, I am sharing my fall fun list. Many of the things on this list have become cherished traditions in our family. My hope is that this list will inspire you to make a fall fun list of your own and to savor this season with your loved ones!
