Fall, My Favorite Time of Year

It’s that time of year again! Fall is definitely my favorite.

I love the anticipation of the holidays, the change of the weather, and most importantly the comfort and coziness of getting to pull out my sweaters again. The past few months, Vitaliy and I have had to readjust our date nights. With the nausea and fatigue I experienced my first trimester, I was definitely more inclined to spend relaxing time together in the comfort of my own home. But now that I’m starting to feel normal again (minus my growing belly) and have more energy, I’m starting to daydream and brainstorm some more exciting outings with my husband. I’m pretty sure he’ll be grateful!

I’ve got pumpkin picking on my mind, but before that, I’m hoping to make a trip to an apple orchard in the near future. We went last year on a trip to St. Louis and it was the perfect double date. Whether we go on a upcoming trip to the Midwest or here in the bay area, I hope to squeeze something in before it’s too late. It’ll be the perfect excuse to finally try baking a pie together too.

What are your traditions this time of year? I’d love to hear some of your ideas!
