Fall Weekend

This past weekend, it was “fall weekend” for me. October is a busy month for my boyfriend and I, so this weekend was the one we could actually plan some fall activities together. He came up to visit me so we could drive around and see the pretty leaves, go to The Apple Barn to pick up some cider donuts and other goodies, and visit Liberty Ridge Farm to have fun at the corn maze. Sadly, since we had a crazy warm summer, the apple orchards weren’t too productive so we had to skip the apple picking. Although the weather forecast didn’t seem to want to play in our favor, it only rained minimally and we had a great time. What are some of your favorite activities to do in fall?

Of course I picked up something chocolate- an apple lollipop


  1. How cute! I love seeing the leaves change in the fall. I wish I could go to a pumpkin patch, but it seems like all of my weekends in October are booked 🙁 maybe next year!

  2. That first picture is unreal. I didn’t know places really looked like that! We’ve done a corn maze before and then a haunted corn maze.

  3. Oh, wow!! Those changing leaves are amazing. It doesn’t quite look like that here yet. That oversized rocking chair is AWESOME. What are the chances my husband will let me get one for the backyard?!! lol! Did it rock??

  4. I’m so glad the weather cooperated for your fall adventures in Vermont. we tried to go apple picking as well but the apple blight made pick-your-own season very very short.

  5. The photo of you in the huge chair is so cute! Looks like you had a fun day! I’m hoping to go pumpkin picking too this month.

  6. I love these pictures Rachel! I miss seeing the leaves change up north…it’s still very summery here in Florida. I’m hoping to find a corn maze and pumpkin patch around here so John and I can still partake in all of the fun fall activities we love.


  7. Rachel, looks like you had a blast with your bf, you guys are soo cute together by the way. I am so jealous I can’t do that stuff with my bf ;-(. You in that giant chair is such a funny picture, you should frame it, made me smile :-). What I am loving the most about fall are the changing leaves, can’t stop looking at the beautiful colours.

  8. Aw – what a fun weekend! I love doing fall activities like picking pumpkins as a date. It’s so cute/perfect for the season!

  9. Looks like such an amazing, fun weekend! I’m quite jealous 🙂 Hoping to do some of these activities in the upcoming weeks 🙂 Love that pic of you in the huge chair!

  10. I love this!!! What a perfect pumpkin patch outing! And that chair is huge! You literally look like a mini person!!!!

  11. I personally adore fall. The holidays that comes with it, the anticipation of everything that is to come, the pumpkins, the pumpkin spiced lattes and cider drinks…etc.
    Such cute photos!

  12. Cute! Looks like you two had such a great time…despite the drizzle! I love all things fall…the clothes, the weather, the food, you name it. This weekend I’m planning to take my nephew to a pumpkin patch. It’s possible I’m more excited about it than he is. Ha.

  13. This looks like a blast! We are planning on going apple picking this weekend. It’s definitely on my top ten favorite fall activities list!
