Fall Nesting: Celebrate the Season with Traditions {Day 4}

I'm a tradition lover. Not to the point of obsession, but I love the nostalgia that traditions give our family. Traditions give us something special to look forward to and remind me to appreciate the season.

Josh and I have only been married for a couple of years, so we only have a few traditions for the fall season. However, I'm looking to add more.

We always go to the local pumpkin patch
We have a great pumpkin patch nearby. They have hayrides, a pumpkin launcher, plenty of food, a corn maze, and of course lots of pumpkins. It's a little more expensive than picking up a few pumpkins from the grocery store, but I think the experience is worth it. We love to find just the right pumpkin.

Pumpkin carving night
Our pumpkin carving night has become somewhat of an event. We pick a weekend night and I make chili and cinnamon rolls, which is perfect for a crisp fall evening. After dinner, we spread garbage bags and newspaper over the floor in our living room and start carving while watching a movie.

We love camping. We do more camping in the fall than any other season. We like to go when the weather is mild during the day and is a tad chilly in the evening.

Do you all have any traditions in the fall? Please share in the comments below!

  1. Chili and cinnamon rolls was always my family's traditional Halloween meal. It's the best combo ever! I do it a little differently now with vegan chili and pumpkin cinnamon rolls (with caramel icing...OMG) but it's still awesome. (Also, brown sugar in your chili is the best addition ever).

    Also, I miss camping with you.


I'd love to hear what you have to say. All comments that are kind, helpful, and relevant are welcome.
