Darren: Stars Hollow is charming. The last time we drove through there, there was a pumpkin patch. Lorelai: Sounds like us. Darren: In March. Lorelai: Oh, that would be the year the pumpkins arrived late. –Gilmore Girls
The air is crisper, the vineyards are turning a beautiful golden, and sweaters are a necessary part of my outfit. I LOVE the fall. I’ve been a little pouty this month because I know Match and I won’t have the time to do the typical fall things I love, like going on weekend hikes, or visiting a pumpkin patch and corn maze. I’m sure I can convince him to take a break from studying at least once during the season, but it won’t be like last year where we hiked almost every weekend, and took an evening stroll every night.
I’m also loving curling up on our couch with a throw wrapped around my legs, sipped hot apple cider and watching a brainless sitcom. It’s the perfect way to unwind after a long day.
I did get some happy news with regards to Match’s busy schedule. It looks like he gets Thanksgiving Day and the day after off from academy. That means we’ll get a real break to enjoy one of my favorite holidays. I am so looking forward to it! My first Thanksgiving as a Mrs and an official member of Match’s family. I feel so grown up. 😉
Speaking of Thanksgiving, I can’t believe it’s right around the corner. That means Christmas is close on it’s heels! Thank you all for the savings suggestions for Christmas. I just may do some holiday baking to add to my homemade gifts of printed wedding pictures for family. I also think I’m going to keep an eye out for deals on Cyber Monday, the first day of crazy internet specials Thanksgiving week. Maybe I can find something fun for Match that won’t break the bank.
Are you enjoying fall? What are your favorite fall activities?
