I can’t believe it’s already October. I absolutely LIVE for this time of year, seriously. With pumpkin-flavored-everything surrounding me and the weather finally getting a bit cooler (like, not 90 degrees) here in South Florida, life is looking awesome! This time of year is the absolute best! I’ve already picked up a couple mini pumpkins from Publix but I need to dig out my fall decorations and pumpkin holiday lights. I just can’t wait until it starts to get cold (you know, Florida cold, so the 50’s and 60’s)! I’ve been pretty busy with work lately, but definitely taking time to enjoy the season!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I’m looking forward to taking Zachary around the neighborhood again this year. He loves holidays now and he’s been asking me about a pumpkin costume, but I haven’t been able to find one that I really like. Seems like with pumpkin costumes, the little girls really get the benefit here. If anyone knows of any fabulous pumpkin costumes for toddler boys, I would love to hear your input. Feel free to send me a message using the contact button on my blog.
One tradition in our family each fall is to go to a pumpkin patch before Halloween and take photos. In Florida the pumpkin patches aren’t as great as the ones up north – here they are usually at churches or garden shops. There is one I haven’t been to yet, though, which looks amazing! it’s about an hour drive from us in Boynton Beach and seems to be worth it for photos, especially now that Zachary mostly agrees to pose for me. The farm is called Bedner’s and they have a U-Pick and a pumpkin patch which opened this past weekend. I can’t wait to go check it out and take some photos of my little guy with the pumpkins!
I found this fun fall decor idea via Pinterest and Apartment Therapy today. What a fun way to liven up your pumpkins!
Keep an eye out for my Wordless Wednesday post, I’ll be sharing some images from my South Florida fall photo session with Zachary at one of my favorite little parks here in Coral Springs!
