This week has been the perfect start to the fall season. I heart fall so much...I know I've talked about this before, but it needs to be said again. I love fall. Fall is my BFF. The cooler weather, the changing leaves, the football, the smells, the beer...all of it. I even love the holidays - Halloween and Thanksgiving. Just too much fun, seriously. And that fun is compounded this year because it's Aubrey's first fall season.
We're having the perfect fall weekend this weekend. Saturday, we're going to be running in a 5k called Wine at the Line. It's in the country at a local winery, winding through the hills and fields around the winery. Aubrey will be chilling with Grandma and Grandpa at the winery, of course. She pushed it really hard at the last race, so she's sitting this one out. I mean, she doesn't want to pull a hamstring or something. Anyway, after the race, there is wine, music, pizza...I mean, fun, right?
The next day, T and I are going to take Aubrey to this apple orchard called Apple Works. We hit it last year, when Aubrey was in utero so I doubt she'll remember it, but it was a lot of fun. We'll get some cider, pick a few pumpkins, and enjoy the day, just the three of us. I may even get enough motivation to get those Halloween decorations out and decorate the place. I may just get all crazy like that!
The only way to top this weekend? Football. I'll have to make sure that the Aubster and I sit down and enjoy a good game or two of football with a nice Sam Adams Oktoberfest. (Me, not her, of course)
I heart fall.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
