So a little tradition that my boyfriend, Marc, and I started is to make a ‘list’ for each season. These lists are compromised of different activities that we want to accomplish in our spare time and usually include things such as fun activities, little adventures, mini-trips / vacations, things to make, places to go, etc. etc. Some of the things on the list are traditional (like carving pumpkins and going apple picking) and other things are new (such as taking a trip or learning how to cook something). Coming up with these lists has helped us make the most out of each season and have been an excellent way of keeping track of all the adventures we’ve had together so far! Here is a little starter Fall List that you can build on or add to for this Fall Season! Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below and if you’d like to see a Winter Fall List next!
(1) Fall 2016Fall Flavor Challenge – Find a great traditional fall recipe and DIY at home! I’m looking forward to trying these recipes for baked apples, pumpkin pecan cobbler, and roasted butternut squash soup. Aside from recipes, the fall flavor challenge can be done by taking a tour of a winery, or cider house and tasting some local fall brews! (Mead is also a really cool old-time fall beverage if you’d like to give that a try! I like mine warm with mulled spices)
(2) Foliage Trip – If you live in New England or get the chance to drive up for the fall, definitely make the effort to come see some of our spectacular foliage! This chart shows the different times that the leaves change throughout New England, so make sure to plan accordingly. I spend quite a lot of time up in Meredith, NH and can make some recommendations in the comments section below for anybody looking to head up that way, but aside from New Hampshire, my next best recommendation would be to check out Burlington, Vermont. Great tools for planning your foliage trip include AirBnB, Megabus (great for anybody looking to sit back and relax while heading up to Boston / Burlington), and this guide. Don’t forget to pack a camera and your best fall fashion looks to capture the moments!
(3) Football – Tis the season for another Patriots Victory! (Hopefully) – Now, for those of you who have yet to experience the thrill of being a football fan – help is here! I never fully understood football until Marc taught me the rules of the game and now I am hooked. This starter-guide for football will turn you into a fan in no time. Support your favorite team in style by shopping here for jerseys, women’s apparel, and more. (I’m not biased at all here. . . 🙂 )
(4) Traditional Fall Bucket Lists – Nothing beats the traditional fall list (that goes without saying). Pumpkin patches/carving, candy apples, going for a hay ride, you know what I’m talking about. Check out the hundreds of ideas featured here for more fall inspo!
(6) Explore Fall Fashion – Autumn is a great time to experiment with new style. Layering is at its finest in the fall. Check out the fashion section of the Rachel Review for upcoming fall trends.
(7) Go Horseback Riding – A great way to connect with nature and experience something new! Just picture it: riding boots, the horse, and the open road. If you’re in need of lessons, check out Jelich Farms in Lexington, MA. If your fall foliage trip includes visiting Meredith, NH another great spot to go horseback riding is at Riding in the Clouds in Moultonborough.
