As much as I hate to see summer go, I don’t mind fall. It’s winter that I have no patience for! Fall means football, pumpkin and leather boots. That, I can do. In the summer we are always on the go, beach one weekend, wedding the next, bachelorette party after that… So when fall hits, we take time to ourselves to enjoy plenty of “date nights”.
Here are some of our favorites.
Visit a pumpkin/apple picking farm.
These farms usually have warm apple cider doughnuts and fresh pumpkin ice cream available. I usually go for both.
There is nothing more enjoyable to a man than drinking beer at a football game. Round up some friends, bring your grill and make your husband happy. We can’t always expect them to do our girly dates!
Take a drive to see the fall foliage
We took a drive upstate New York one weekend and were in awe seeing how pretty life was out of the city. It’s pretty in the city too, but we don’t see views like this!
Go on a Hot Air Balloon Ride
I’ve never been but it’s definitely on my bucket list… Hint Hint Adam!
Bake a sweet treat with the items you picked at the farm
Sometimes I like to enjoy “dessert only” dinners. Caramel Chocolate Dipped apples are approved!
Visit your local Renaissance Festival
These festivals are known for beer garden’s, giant turkey legs and lots of fun. I’ve never dressed up, but love to see the people who do. They really get creative with their outfits.
Take a walk to your favorite Sunday Brunch spot
Whole Wheat pancakes for me and eggs benedict for Adam. We didn’t technically “walk” to this brunch spot because it is in NYC, but we did walk around the city after stuffing ourselves silly.
Wake up to watch an early morning sunrise
I watch a lot of sunrise and sunsets and I can tell you that the prettiest ones are during Autumn. It might be difficult to catch a sunset with work schedules so make an effort to wake up early and watch the sun rise.
Catch up over Hot Chocolate
Sometimes life gets crazy and you need to get rid of the distractions. Sit down at a quiet coffee shop, no tv, no computer, no phones and catch up with your spouse. It’s the little things that count…
