Autumn is in the Air

I know everyone says they love fall, but I'm actually OBSESSED WITH IT. Even to the point where I want my future wedding to be in October (#notengagedohwell) Here is my list of links and things to do this fall. As this is my last fall in Northern Wisconsin for awhile (or the Midwest, who knows?!?) I plan to take full advantage of it.

Links to Love
Fall Colors: If you are looking to find some of those brilliant fall colors, I've found some websites for the midwest, northeast,and  southeast. Also check out T&L's guide to the best fall drives!

Apple Cider Sangria: Basically two of my favorite things, in one recipe! I also want to try this non-alcoholic apple cider floats with my sisters!

Borderline Genius Tailgating Tips: I'm going to two Green Bay Packers' games (#GOPACKGO) and a UW-Madison Badgers game as well! I love tailgating, and am thinking about using some of these!

Fall soup: After finding out we have a crockpot, I'm excited to make some of these on Sunday for the week ahead! Warm, creamy soup on a crisp fall day sounds delcious.

Fall crafts: While I am not very crafty at all, this DIY Pumpkin Monogram sign and this Candy Corn Button art look really easy to make!

Fun Fall Printables: I love seasonal printables, and I'm slowly collecting prints for my "grown-up" apartment! Find great free printables here, here, and here!

What is your favorite thing about fall? For me it's a combination of everything (specific I know).



  1. Oh my gosh, thank you for that fall colors list! I didn't even know websites like that existed. I'm actually really looking forward to making some weekend trips to see beautiful fall colors so I'll definitely be taking advantage of that.

  2. I've always wanted a fall wedding! These are great activity ideas. I feel like I need to 'refresh' my brain whenever a new season comes around. You just reminded me that I should take advantage of hiking the trails near my house before the leaves fall off the trees!

  5. Fall is my favorite time of year. It welcomes the triumverate of my favorite holidays. I love busting out the sweaters, jeans, and boots...and don't get me started on the scarves. Loving all the things you plan on doing this fall! I'm going to need to try out some of those things myself.

  10. Love your fall list! I'm excited to pull out my boots, and have my favorite drink at Starbucks again which is the Salted Carmel Mocha drinks.

  11. Ah I miss having the seasons so badly! No changing leaves for autumn over here :(

  12. Fall is definitely my favorite season and I am planning to get married during that time as well!
    Apparently so is everyone else because it's been so tough to find a venue even over a year out.

    But yes to all the links and things on this list!
