5 Relaxing Fall Activities

My favorite time of year means my favorite relaxing fall activities! These really ‘zen’ me and help me soak up all of the beautiful weather we’ve been having! But first, before we get into my activity list, I wanted to give y’all a heads up that the Shopbop Fall Event is going on!

If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a great time to stock up on fall, winter, and holiday goodies by getting:

15% off orders of $200+

20% off orders of $500+

25% off orders of $800

using code FALL20! All of my favorite brands are included in this fall event, like ANINE BING, Blank Denim, BB Dakota, Sam Edelman, and more.

Whether it’s stocking up on boots, sweaters, or coats, you can snag these items at a discounted price for only a couple times of year.  Need some more inspo on what to snag? You should check out their Fall Favorites and Everyday Essentials (I always love their curated lists!!).  What do you think you’re going to snag from the sale?!

Now, let’s get to some more fun things:

Sit By The Fire and Roast Marshmallows

Quite possibly, my favorite fall activity.  We had a gas fire pit installed last year (best decision ever, honestly, we use it SO much), but there are really affordable natural fire pits too.  For example, this one is under $100! It’s so nice and relaxing to sit outside by the fire.  Obviously, roasting marshmallows is a must! I use these skewers that are adjustable in length!

Indulge in a Spooky Book

I can’t wait to post my next spooky book review (coming in a few days, stay tuned!).  Indulge in A Discovery of Witches or the Name of the Wind and get lost in a magical story!

Make a Pile of Leaves and Jump in It

Look. Trust me on this. Don’t say you’re too old for it. J and I did it the other day and it was 1000% worth it ha! It was so much fun!

Go for a Scenic Walk

Go to a local park or nature reserve and enjoy the changing color of the leaves.  They’ll be gone before you know it.  There’s something about a long walk that clears my mind.  I always feel rejuvenated afterwards.

Sit Outside with your Favorite Fall Latte

If your fave coffee shop is open, head there and sit outside.  If not, make or pick-up your favorite PSL or fall latte and sit outside (anywhere!). It’s all about slowing down, taking a deep breath, and having some time *for yourself*.

10/27/18 Mr. & Mrs. White

There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t feel so blessed to be Jordan’s wife. He is my everything. These photos and video are the sweetest reminder of our love for one another. So, grab a cup of coffee, pull up a seat, and try not to bawl your eyes out (because I know we did). Every time we look through our photos and watch our video, we cry the happiest tears.

The Proposal

It’s crazy what can happen in a year. I met the love of my life and the rest is history. I was having a hard time ending this post, because frankly, I think I could talk about that evening forever. Then I realized that this post doesn’t have an ending, but instead, a beginning. Thank you so much for all of the love, excitement, and gratitude.

Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake my dark chocolate chip pumpkin bread! I’ve made it *so* many times for me, J, and friends & family. It’s moist, decadent, and super easy to make! It also makes for a great DIY housewarming gift.
