Autumn has officially returned and so have I! (For now, at least.) I apologize for disappearing for the majority of 2016 – life has truly gotten the best of me. Between work craziness, losing my family dog, and wedding planning it’s been difficult to find a moment to create decent content. It was time I finally gave you all a quick update and with that have a little fun with the Fallgasm tag! After all, Fall is my favorite time of the year and I need to embrace it somehow in between the rest of life’s chaos!
Favorite part about Fall?
The best part about Fall is the ambiance that comes with it. You’re surrounded by the most beautiful foliage, there’s a crispness in the air which is a delight, and at home there’s a constant aroma of apples, cinnamon, caramel, and pumpkins.
Favorite Fall month?
October, hands down; it’s the perfect temperature, the trees haven’t lost all their leaves yet, and the mystique of Halloween surrounds us all.
Favorite Starbucks drink?
Pumpkin spice iced coffee (of course) but not from Starbucks.
Favorite Fall treat?
I really enjoy getting candied nuts at local festivals.
Favorite Bath & Body Works candle?
This is a tough questions because BBW does Fall candles the best in my opinion, so I have a lot of favorites. I’d narrow it down to Leaves, Cider Lane, Radiant Red Maple, and Pumpkin Pie.
Favorite Yankee candle?
I’m not a major fan of YC fragrances due to the lack of throw.
Favorite Fall soap?
I currently don’t have a favorite fall soap.
Favorite Fall activity?
Aside from the typical activities like apple picking, etc. I really enjoy taking walks around my neighborhood to appreciate how beautiful nature is during this time.
Fondest Fall memory?
My all-time favorite Fall memory occurred back in 2012 when I went to the pumpkin patch with my niece. (I recounted that in full detail a few years ago, here.)
Favorite Fall tunes?
I absolutely LOVE listening to the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone soundtrack – it’s so magical!
Favorite Halloween costume?
I’m not sure I have a past favorite, although this year’s costume might make the list. 😉
Favorite Halloween movie?
HOCUS POCUS FOREVER! I also really enjoy Halloweentown, Harry Potter, and The Little Vampire.
Favorite Halloween candy?
Reese’s Fast Break, yumm.
Hayride or haunted house?
Definitely hayride, and it better not be haunted!
Cornmaze or pumpkin patch?
Halloween or Thanksgiving?
This is really difficult, but I think I have to go with Halloween.
Favorite Thanksgiving food?
It’s a toss up between stuffing and cranberry sauce.
Apple pie or pumpkin pie?
Pumpkin pie is my true love.
Apple cider or hot cocoa?
Apple cider for Fall and hot cocoa for Winter.
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a bit more in the Fall spirit than I was before answering these questions. Please be sure to check out the creator of the Fallgasm tag, The Bronze Blogger. As I close my first post in over five months, I can’t promise to release consistent content again just yet. Know that once I’ve finally destressed, I’ll be back!
