Inspirational Monday: Falling into Fall


As a kid, I didn't really care for Fall. I mean I loved Halloween and pumpkin carving and of course Thanksgiving...but it was no summer. Now as I get older I truly appreciate what fall as to offer. There is something about the refreshing cool crisp weather that makes it feel like I have a fresh start. I've come to look forward to pumpkin spiced everything, apple cider, the fall colors, and actually the cooler weather. Being able to just leave the house with a long sleeve shirt and a pair of jeans calls for an easy weekend look. Plus, being able to walk around the city and not sweat is truly pleasant.

This weekend the fiance and I were out and about enjoying the beautiful sun on Saturday. We started our day down in SOHO getting some ideas on DIY wedding invites then traveled out to Red Hook to check out an art show he was in. Then later that night we went to one of my favorite street festivals of all time, San Gennaro. We sat outside enjoyed an Italian dinner, some wine, and people watched. It was the perfect way to abide summer adieu.

  1. Ahh I've lived in NY my whole life and have never been to the San Gennaro feast! I'm totally missing out. I agree - I've started liking Fall so much more now that I'm older (I think it's because I'm done with school, haha!) :)
