Hello, sweet friends! After a whirlwind long weekend in South Dakota, Scott and I are officially back in the desert heat. We spent four days exploring Eastern SD and our time there was filled with lots of adventures, autumn fun and delicious eats! I'll be sharing a few posts soon to recap our trip, but for now let's just say that we're officially huge fans of South Dakota! Love the vibe in Sioux Falls and plan on going back one day soon! Oh, and if you missed them -- I shared a few peeks into our trip via Instagram over the weekend! If you're in need of an autumn color fix, I got you covered! ;)
Before Scott and I hopped on a jet plane, we spent a few days getting into the autumn spirit around here. Fall in the desert is a funny thing -- it's definitely not the iconic fall that everyone dreams about with colored leaves and sweater weather galore, but it still has it charm. We have a darling pumpkin patch on the edge of town that celebrates the season all month long with pumpkins, chili, sweet treats and more! Our local coffee shop switches up their menu to include all of the fall classics we love -- pumpkin spice, hot apple cider and even a pumpkin chai for the occasion. The weather, albeit still hot, starts to cool down day by day -- and sometimes, you may even be wearing a coat on Halloween. And the spirit of fall can surely be found throughout town -- everyone knows that it may not ever feel like actual fall around here, but we're all certainly going to try!
It's Wednesday and Scott and I are stoked to be heading to the Arizona State Fair with a few of our friends from the Junk In The Trunk Vintage Market! Scott is looking forward to eating ALL of the fried treats, and I've got my eyes set on some sweat and salty kettle corn! I'll be sharing our adventures via Instagram Stories, and would love if you followed along for the evening! I hope ya'l have a great day and I'll be back soon!
