fall festivities (and another life update!)

Well you guys, all signs point to fall being right around the corner! Pumpkin spice is everywhere, my online shopping carts are full of cardigans and scarves, football season is well underway, and Target just got a bunch of ridiculously tempting Halloween shit in. If I was still on the east coast I think I’d probably be relishing some cooler temperatures and the changing of leaves, but here in California it’s as hot as ever! I’ve been wondering lately if the lack of “fall weather” will affect the way I celebrate the season. I think (and hope) that my internal seasonal clock is strong enough to overcome the major change of scenery!

It will be really interesting to see what L.A has to offer for this time of the year. I’m excited for all of the cool things that I wouldn’t get to experience anywhere else, like Disneyland at Halloween time and maybe a spooky movie in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. But I’m also anxious for all the usual festivities like pumpkin patching and apple picking and lots and lots of baking! Plus, my 23rd birthday! I usually make a to-do list for this kind of stuff in my planner so I always have a suggestion handy, but I thought it would also be fun to create a visual of some of the items I’m most looking forward to. That way, the boys can get excited too!

Now for that promised life update. Good news, we found an apartment! It’s perfect. It’s in a great area, it’s in our price range, it has new hardwood floors and spacious rooms, and I am just so excited to start decorating it. We move in next Saturday, which could not come sooner as I am really really sick of sleeping on a bed in a living room and driving an hour and a half to work. I’m so excited that I don’t even mind the fact that I’ll probably be unpacking on my birthday.
