I swear, I can sit and look at all things fall all day long. I didn’t really didn’t realize how bad, or rather apparent, my obsession was until friends started sending me hilarious memes about girls loving fall. Here, refer to this post for more explanation. The point is, I’m a falloholic and I am damn proud of it. I try to embrace and celebrate the season in every possible way. From pumpkin carving and yummy soups, to walking thru graveyards (I’m a creep) and obsessing over Halloween, autumn is my jam. I mean, I freaking listen to the soundtrack of Halloween while driving for crying out loud. I should probably get arrested for being an enormous weirdo. But for real, what’s not to love? It’s a time to embrace change, life moving forward. Lucky for us, it just so happens to put on a spectacular show of yellows, oranges and deep reds while it’s at it. Fall is so beautiful, it’s my biggest muse. Over three years of being in Instagram, I realized that between late September and early November, it’s the prettiest my account looks, with the exception of when we’re in a far off land exploring, of course. Here are some of my favorite photos from my Instagram Autumn’s Past. Tis’ the season to be FALLTASTIC!
Boston. One of my favorite cities in the world. This is the city’s Public Garden and it is breathtaking. It’s the perfect place to take a stroll, meditate, and sip on your morning cappuccino. Here is the garden in all it’s glory putting on it’s fall display.
This is our fur baby, Egon, screaming at us for getting him such a small, GD pumpkin.
The technical name for these little orange miracles is Solanum aethiopicum – a relative of the eggplant family. They are better and more commonly known as Pumpkins on a Stick. Seriously. How freaking cute are they?! I need to get my hands on some of these babies this season. Heads up: last year I got them at the Daley Center Farmer’s Market which runs until October 27. Enjoy!
The beautiful sunsets of Michigan…they are some of the best in the Midwest, hands down!
This was a #TBT to our first Halloween together back in 2007 – it was a blast! He was a cheeky little Telletubby and I rocked a bad ass pink mohawk…gosh I miss that short do sometimes.
I got these gems at the Geneva Farmer’s Market. They are sensational! Apparently they come from a French family of pumpkins, a name I will never be able to spell or pronounce. I am absolutely in love with the funky one to the left. How cool!? (Ps. I know to some these are the ugliest pumpkins one has ever laid their eyes upon…it’s all good. More for me!)
I mean, what two better Cards Against Humanity cards would one wish for during Halloween time?
I love decorating our mantle for the seasons and holidays. This mantle is from the original build of the house in 1885. Basically, it’s old as F! It’s so beautiful and offers such a generous space for decoration. Here is my Fall 2015 look. Here are more ideas I found last year.
Although these mums didn’t even make it to the first frost (buttholes!), I am grateful for my favorite ever fall photo. They were the perfect props.
A friend sent me this pumpkin decor a couple years ago. Made from velvet and a real pumpkin stem, it makes for the perfect fall detail to any home.
You guys know by now how much I like cemeteries. I went to one last week just for the hell of it. Albiet a bit macabre at times, it makes for a peaceful time to walk among those who have been here and have moved on. It adds a spooky meditation to the day.
This was in 2014 when we met Mr. John Harvard. Super polite and quite smart as well.
You guys, I bought these after the Tough Mudder at the cutest pumpkin farm I have ever seen in my life. For real. The name is Spieker’s Pumpkin Farm in Wisonsin, if you see it this season…GO! I bought these cool ass Indian corns and was so excited to hang them. I hung them up outside our front door in a spot I was sure no little turds of nature would be able to reach. Well, wouldn’t you know that I was in a full on war with this little asshole squirrel that would actually make it difficult for me to leave my home. I was a prisoner watching him eat my stunning decor from Mother Nature. Alas, my corn is no more, it’s a good thing I snapped this pic. #whydontyoutakeapictureitlllastlonger
Nature and leopard print are two of my favorite things. Combine the two together and I am in my heaven!
More old ass tomb stones…how cool are these?! We came about these randomly while on a mini trip to Michigan. Keep your eyes peeled!
Fairy tale pumpkins are my favorite. I love their shapes, sizes and their colors. I don’t discriminate!
Behold…Frankenstein and his bride, Halloween 2015.
This is my feel good fall smoothie. It is so delicious and duh, there is pumpkin in it. Go here for the recipe!
I took this during a fall bike ride through the north side of the city. Those colors make my heart explode.
This photo was taken in 2014 and in the same spot The Mister Project proposed to me two years prior. I love everything about this photo, but what I love most about it, was that my mom took it for us. It was the last photo she ever took and probably ever will take for me, so there is a very special place in my heart for this image. It makes me happy on many different levels.

Love it. Live it. Share it.
