My favorite season of the year is here! If you have ever been lucky enough to visit Utah in the fall, then you know just how magnificent the colors are.
I chose to get married at the end of September, because of the beautiful array of colors and how it smells like leaves and warm cider. The air is crisp and damp so I get to bundle up in my favorite jacket and explore the trails. Anyone else have autumn as their favorite season?
If we get technical, the total duration of autumn is 89 days long starting on September 22nd - December 21st. But I like to think of fall as mid September to Thanksgiving. Once Thanksgiving is over its all about Winter for me! (I am not a big fan of the cold Utah Winters)
So with almost 3 months of lovely fall weather, there are many fun things to see, taste and try!
Graham was only about 2 months old last Fall, so I am eager to have him expierance all the fun festivities.
I have made a list of my favorite Fall traditions! You can use it as your own Fall Bucket list, if you'd like.

I bought this last fall from Hope Ave. Here is a similar shirt.
I bought these at Nordstroms a few years ago. Here is the shoe, just not in the same print.
This is no longer available at H&M, but I found it for sale on Poshmark
