OCTOBER. The official kick off to the BEST time of year…the Holidays!
This is my favorite Fall month because it means apple picking, pumpkin patches and flannel, but mainly because it’s a nice reminder I won’t need a puffer coat for another few weeks. October makes the cooler weather bearable for me knowing that pumpkin spice lattes are finally back at Starbucks and family time is coming up in November and December!
In the spirit of welcoming Fall, my boyfriend Ben and I took a weekend trip to Lititz, Pennsylvania to visit his family and meet their adorable new puppy, Leia! (If you follow me on Instagram you have definitely seen her on my Insta stories!)
Lititz is an cute, little town in the heart of Amish country with horses and farms for MILES. I love getting out of New York City to visit here because it reminds me how small I am compared to the giant world we live in and also how simple life really is. And trust me, you tend to forget when you live somewhere like Manhattan!
We had beautiful weather so decided to explore Cherry Crest Adventure Farm where there are a ton of fun Fall activities for families including a giant pumpkin patch, a corn maze, petting zoo, apple shooting (out of huge cannons!), paint ball, go carts, sports activities and more. My favorite things about our trip to Cherry Crest were getting to pick my own pumpkins (the cutest ones most suitable for coffee table decor of course) and their AMAZING homemade Apple Cider Donuts!!
My favorite little coffee shop on main street in downtown Lititz is Dosie Dough Bakery. They have some yummy homemade bread, sandwiches and bakery treats including gluten free options just for me! I cant wait to go back for Thanksgiving. Thinking I might do a shoot to show you guys more of what this cute little town has to offer!
