A Story By

Hey SA!

Fall Season is underway and we couldn’t be more ecstatic! The weather gets a bit cooler, there are cute Pumpkin Patches, and yummy Fall Drinks. Here are a few other things Kiki and Sam are excited about.

Things that get us excited about Fall Season:

Kiki’s List:

  • 🍂 Seeing the leaves change colors, along with rain and cold weather breeze. (the colder the better)
  • 🍂 Only wearing sweaters!!! Fall fashion is TOP TIER.
  • 🍂 Spooky season movies! I’m super excited to see the new Halloween, Paranormal Activity movies and rewatch The Thing, Monster House, Scary Godmother Halloween Spooktacular, and The Fear Street Trilogy.
  • 🍂 Candle sales🥰 I can’t wait to stock up on Sweater Weather, Flannel, and Frozen Lake.
  • 🍂 Music! Everyone knows that music hits different in the fall!
  • 🍂 FOOTBALL BABY!!! Go Green Bay Packers and Auburn Tigers!!

Sam’s List:

  • 🍁 Celebrating Libra Season, duh! 😝♎️
  • 🍁 Adding NEW, yearly additions to my Día de Los Muertos decorations.
  • 🍁 Picking out THE perfect Halloween costume to hand out candy in.
  • 🍁 Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade while the turkey cooks in the oven.
  • 🍁 Anything food related like tamales or my mom’s Thanksgiving stuffing. We all know Fall AND Winter are bulking season.
  • 🍁 Wearing long boots, beanies, and flannels without it being too hot. (We love fashion around here!)
