Welcome to Mattie and I’s very first link up! Thank you all in advance for joining us. We can’t wait to read about your favorite fall activities especially since it’s officially September now! Where did this year go?
And no worries if you guys missed out today, the link up is open until this Friday, or you can also link up next month too on October 2nd and share your favorite thing about your state.
One of my favorite things to do in the fall is go apple picking! My parents took our family when we were growing up and it’s always something we looked forward to. My family used to have a Chevy Astro van and we loved driving through the orchard with the side door open.
And when we stopped to pick apples it was so fun to climb on top of the car because that’s the time we got to do that! (Sadly I don’t have pictures of it with me, they’re all at my parent’s house back home.)
More recently, before I moved to Cali I went apple picking for my dad’s 60th birthday and it was so fun to be out there again after not going for so many years. It is so relaxing and fun, especially when the weather is crisp. I also love hot apple cider.
Another thing I love to do in the fall is layer up! I love scarves and boots and I also love drinking hot tea. I could go on and on 🙂
I am also a big fan of baking and here are some fun fall inspired treats I found on Pinterest.

As sad as I am to see summer leave
, I can not deny my excitement for cozy sweaters and hot cups of tea 🙂
I love a change of season, adds a sense of renewal! Summer is great but those hot humid days I could do without!
I just love the fall weather so much! Cozy sweaters and scarves are my very favorite. I’ve never been apple picking but it sounds like something I would want to try. I’m hoping next year Jose and I can start making our own traditions!
Making traditions with your significant other is so much fun, one of my favorite things to do! I highly recommend apple picking 🙂
That outfit is perfection! Apple picking is so much fun. What a great way to make memories with your family!
Pinterest has so many cute fall outfit ideas that I need to recreate stat! 🙂
Big sweaters and scarfs, fireplaces, and those muddy buddies = yes please!

Apple Picking!! How fun! And yes to scarves and yes to tea 🙂
I’m so excited to sip on some hot tea even in this hot california weather we are having haha!
I have never been apple picking, even though I legitimately wanted to be an apple picker when I grew up for a while. How does that work?! Haha. I so can’t wait to layer up with scarves and sweaters and boots! Ah!
So happy about our link-up!
Haha I so love that you wanted to be an apple picker it’s so specific and funny to me!
Can’t wait for some fall weather in Seattle! Hello rainboots 🙂
Okay, so I’ve never been apple picking before! I feel so sheltered now, haha. Especially since there is a huge apple festival about an hour away from where I live. Sounds like fun though! Thanks for the link up today too!
Hah you have to go apple picking it’s so fun! Make the drive you won’t regret it 🙂 Thanks for joining our link up!
Her outfit is number one reason I love fall, you can get all bundled up in a blanket scarf (yet to buy one!) and just cuddle up. Baking in the winter and fall are my main reasons our entergy bill is soooo high! I can’t help but smelling cookies bake. I’ve also never apple picked, but we do have a lemon tree in our yard, so I can kind of understand, right?

Those blanket scarves are so popular right now and so cute.
I love the smell of anything baking haha
I want to try to start a garden when I move, your lemon tree sounds awesome!
