Fall is here, that means it’s Pumpkin Patch season again!
Growing up in Brazil we never had the pumpkin patch tradition, so for me it’s super fun to experience it here in the US. I always know it's that time of the year when I start to smell the scent of sweet cinnamon & pumpkin spice just about everywhere.
It feels so good to walk around the fields and pick my own pumpkin, then decorate my house. I enjoy celebrating seasons, holidays and really just everything.
There’s always something to be thankful, so why not?!
This year I will try to carve my own pumpkin, let’s see what comes out of it! Stay tuned lol
