I could have imagined it, but I felt like there was almost a chill in the air this morning. Like I could almost wear a light jacket for 10 minutes over my tshirt and shorts. But the calendar says fall is coming whether or not the weather here agrees. There are some new autumn card designs in the shop to get you in the crispy leaves and hot tea mood.
We love the pumpkin garden outside of Whole Foods. So many different kinds of pumpkins to conquer. (Real pumpkin king here.)
The early nightfall brings back so many memories. Raking leaves. Crisp football game nights. Warm home-ma-made dinners. How cold the inside of a pumpkin is when you are taking out its guts. The delicious smell of the halloween candy bucket, even when there is no candy inside it. My favorite Halloween show. Oh, fall. You are the best.
This is the best pumpkin patch in the world. Rasmussen Farms in Hood River, Oregon. It’s a real pumpkin patch. Where you have to walk yourself out into the field of pumpkins and pick one for yourself. When you find the perfect one, you check it over, clean the dirt off with spit, and then rip it off the vine. Its pure fall and happiness.
If I had my way, I would get married in the middle of the pumpkin patch. It has breathtaking scenery, and smells like fresh apples. Everyone would wear boots, and the bridesmaids would wear braids in their hair.
