Yesterday was Fall, today it’s winter...IT’S SNOWING!! Huge, fluffy flakes that are sticking to tree limbs, eaves, and the leaves blanketing the ground. I made some coffee and took a long walk, feeling it fall lightly on my face.

Fall is here! Are 38 year olds allowed to play in the leaves?? I’d kind of like to go to a park and just slide into a big pile of ‘em.

🐑 Did you know?...Shearling is fabric made from a sheep that has only been shorn once. Sherpa looks like shearling but is made from synthetic material (usually polyester, sometimes acrylic or cotton). If something is referred to as faux-shearling, it’s really just a fancy name for sherpa. I did not know that! I can’t get enough of all the cozy fabrics right now and became curious about the difference so I went on a hunt to find out the answer and thought I’d share! ♥️

We may just need a pair of mittens sooner than we think! Last Saturday, Brainerd already got flutters and more are expected tonight 😳 I remember quite a few times when I was little only being able to go to one house (my aunts) to trick or treat because it was snowing so hard. Stay warm and dry!

What I love about @thelynhall is it just feels like home. So cozy inside (and out), and I wasn’t very hungry so I asked if they could just do a simple toast or something. They plated it so nicely and the jam and whipped butter totally hit the spot 👌

If only there were some rentals in MN or WI that looked like this Airbnb outside Portland! 🌲 I’m planning a staycation and hoped to go for just one or two nights close by to see the 🍁 change. If anyone has any recommendations for simple and modern accommodations let me know! 📷 @shopfieldtrip (If you live or are headed near Portland, book your stay at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/23046644).

I can’t believe Halloween will be here in just a few short weeks! Whether you’re baking, gifting, or decorating I’ve been busy uploading all the party and packaging supplies you might need... striped and polka dot candy bags, cupcake liners, pumpkin cookie boxes, patterned tape, cups for serving chili and snacks, and wooden cutlery to eat all the goodies!

🎃 It’s pumpkin carving time! Are you a person who carves a pumpkin every Fall? I wish there was a company that would offer the service of digging all the goop out so just the fun part of carving would be left. It takes an insane amount of time to get the pumpkin prepped, no? Or am I just not using the right tools? Good thing I love just a grouping of pumpkins and gourds, sans carving, almost as much.

When I moved to MN last Spring, my parents and I decided not to give each other gifts any longer for birthdays, fathers/mothers day, etc. Instead, we would plan an experience to do together.
__
Yesterday, was my moms 65th birthday and her wish was to spend it at the Oliver Kelly Farm, a historic site in Elk River, which is about 40 min north of the cities.
__
The farmstead has one of the original houses to tour, livestock, gardens, and workers in costume who on this particular weekend were focused on harvesting sorghum and boiling it down into molasses.
__
We spent way longer at the farm than expected, there was so much to do! Highly recommend! We purchased yearly memberships, which allows free admission into 26 historic sites and museums throughout MN. Next up - Forestville and the Mill City Museum!

Bring out the Pendleton, sweaters, and plaid. We’ve officially got Fall weather in the north. It went from 90 degrees straight to downright chilly, but I’m not complaining. I’m excited to go apple picking, see the leaves change color, and burn a spiced cider candle. Do you have any traditions you do every Fall?

My mom finds these reddish wheat looking weeds beautiful. I found them beautiful too as I made my way down the driveway. What makes a weed a weed anyway?

It can be hard to find a good zucchini bread recipe (banana bread for that matter too!) that is a bit more healthy but is still moist and sweet enough. I’ve probably made a 100 loaves throughout my life, but I finally found the perfect recipe! It’s a keeper. If you’ve got extra zucchini from the garden, head to the blog (link in profile) to bake some up for yourself!
