One of the reasons I love fall so much is that it signifies the start of the holiday season. Now that we have a little man in tow the holiday season just seems so much more exciting again. I have always been a person that embraces change. After too long in one place, I get a little stir crazy. I’m all about changing up anything and everything at the drop of a dime. The exception to this being holiday traditions.
When you first get married and join into a new family, one of the fun aspects is partaking in their traditions. However, I think it’s really important as a new family unit to make some of your own traditions that are special to you. The thought of Georgie passing these down to his own family one-day is so exciting to me!
The only holiday he has been here for was the 4th of July. Trey’s family typically gets together at the beach house for this holiday and Memorial Day. They have a cookout and say the pledge of allegiance. It’s a special thing for them, and it was exciting to have G there to be a part of it.
Halloween is the first holiday that we will be in Nashville with our own little tribe. I wanted to establish something that would be special for us to do and we found Cheekwood botanical gardens. They had a little pumpkin house, a bluegrass beer garden and thousands and thousands of mums. It was so fun to take G to get his first pumpkin, and also have some QT with Trey and a pumpkin beer.
I hope to follow through and keep doing this year after year so he will eventually look forward to it.
It was a little warm, but I was all about the fall spirit that I was didn’t mind sweating a little in my long cardigan. (Ridiculous, I know.) This embellished top gives me all the fall feels. I originally got it in a size smaller, but wanted a looser more shift like fit so took one back for a larger size. I live in boyfriend style cardigans that I can cozy up in during the fall and I love the fit of this one. Also, pockets. Enough said.
How cute is G’s little puffer vest?! It’s under $20 and a must fall staple for little boys. I got so many compliments on it.
