I’m starting to see everything pumpkin pop up which means that fall is right around the corner! Here are some of the things that I’m looking forward to!
As a Red Sox fan this wasn’t always the best thing, as it often meant heartbreak, but the last few years have been pretty good and has turned into something that I look forward to in the Fall. Although the Sox won’t make it to the postseason this year, and the chances of Dino Boy’s Giants making it decrease every day, I’m still looking forward to watching the final month of baseball, having a beer and relaxing!
This is always one of my favorite traditions. The past few years Dino Boy and I have taken a trip up to wine country, had a tasting (or two) and then go to a pumpkin patch where we get to pick our pumpkins off the vine!
We then take them home. I take out the guts (the best part) and then Dino Boy gets a little too serious about carving them. We’ve had some pretty cool ones the past few years!
While you can do a crockpot meal throughout the entire year, there’s just something magical about a crockpot meal in fall. The weather is starting to cool down and there’s nothing better than walking into the house and smelling what’s been cooking throughout the day. It’s always great to curl up and have a nice warm meal. I can’t wait to try out some of these crockpot recipes.
It’s amazing to see all the different browns, reds and oranges that come out during the fall. There’s just something special about all the trees putting on a show of color, even if it does mean we’ll have to be sweeping pounds of leaves a month later. One of these days I hope to make it back to Boston to show Dino Boy what a real fall looks like!
What do you look forward to in fall?
