This is absolutely my favorite time of year. Crisp air, pumpkin carving, fall foliage, homemade donuts, sweaters and boots; everything about it! We’re heading to NY next week to experience New England fall. It has become a tradition that I look forward to every year and recharges me for the holiday season. Every time we go we do the same things: hikes in the Adirondack Mountains, corn mazes, apple picking, pumpkin carving, hayrides, and strolls through Central Park. Do you have fall traditions on your must-do list too?

Susan of Freshly Picked and I thought it would be fun to share all of our festive activities with one another by tagging them on instagram so we can see what everyone’s doing. Each week we’ll have a few seasonal activities that as you do them, you can instagram and tag them in your instagram comment during October with #festigramOct so we can all follow along on each other’s fun fall activities. No need to feel pressure to do them all, just if you happen to do one during that specified week, share it on instagram with the #festigramoct hashtag so we can all see! I’m excited to have a kind of advent calender for the whole season. A reminder of fun things to do as a family and a wonderful way to share them with one another because it would be a shame to let October pass by without apple cider donuts or roasting pumpkin seeds.

PS On instagram I’m @yestohoboken and Susan is @freshlypicked.  We’ll remind you every week what the prompts are to participate with #festigramOct. I hope you join us!

Update: The response has been amazing so far! Loving all the fall foliage and pumpkin baking going on! You’re all getting me so excited for my trip next week!

Sounds like fun! I adore upstate New York in the fall, especially the mountains. It’s probably the best time of year in New York state! It’s post humid grossness and muggy bugginess and pre-icy slippery 4-feet-of-snowy wonderland!

(And psst, New York is not considered part of New England, even upstate NY!)

I know, that’s why I come out at the same time every year. and yeah, you’re probably right about the new england thing but it’s as close as i’m getting this year!
