Fall in Florida Part 1

It's the most wonderful time of the year if you, like me, love the fall. For those of you who don't know me, I grew up in New England where we do fall better than anyone. We have the foliage, the apple picking, the hay rides, the pumpkin treats; everything that defines fall, we have in here. Imagining the perfect fall day with cozy sweaters and boots, hot cider, pumpkin patches, haunted hay rides and cozening up by a nighttime firepit? I've done it and I've got to tell you. I miss it. I now live in Florida and have spent the last nine years attempting to "do" fall in Florida. We do have PSL, corn mazes, and haunted houses, just in 90 degree heat. So I am learning to mix my favorite things about a New England fall with the reality of life in the Florida sun.

So here is my idea. I am going to chronicle my Florida fall life for those of you who either a) live in the beautiful fall weather and want to laugh at my futile attempts b) live in the heat and want to laugh at my attempt to fight it. I will try and do the things I loved doing while living up north, share what we classify as a fall activity in the south and create a hybrid of the these things when I can. Feel free to share some ideas below and here's to having a fall to remember with a heat index in the 100s. 

Proof of the fall I know and loved.
