A Half a Year & a Pumpkin Patch ♥

dress, purse, & belt: goodwill, shoes: thrifted, necklace: a handmade gift!
Happy Tuesday! So beware, this post is VURRYY heavy on photos. I just had a fantastic day on Sunday, and a lot of brilliant photos were the result. Nat and I celebrated half a year together as a couple by going to a pumpkin patch to get some pumpkins! I haven't picked and carved pumpkins since I was way little, and my family doesn't do it now... so as you can imagine, I was excited! Last fall I was sad that I didn't do any typical festive things during the fall and winter months, so I'm so happy that Nat wanted to do this with me this year!
We went to this big, amazing pumpkin path in Petaluma where there were fields of flowers, pumpkins, corn, animal pins, and of course, some food booths and games for kids. Imagine my glee! Bahaha. So we found 4 pumpkins - big, medium, small, and tiny! They gave us the tiny one for free. :3 I'm pretty sure it's technical name is some sort of gourd... but that's besides the point! It's adorableee.

For this occasion, I wore this pretty flowy dress, thinking that the longer sleeves would be appropriate for fall weather... but wait - WHAT fall weather!? It was 80 degrees out! By golly, I'm demanding fall! Bleh. It looks like it it will be in the 70s this week though...So that's a bit better.
While I thought picking pumpkins and carving would alone be nice for our 6 month, Nat surprised me that evening with taking me to his house and making me dinner! I was kinda speechless! It was really sweet and a very lovely time. :) Dinner followed up with the carving of the big pumpkin, which was AWESOME! I'm rather proud of our end result. The expression was of our very own creation! It was a perfect addition to an already great day.

I hope you semi enjoyed my huge amount of photos and my long ramble... I know I did...! It was too special not to record in extreme detail. ;) Talk to you all soon! x

  5. Happy Mensiversary! My boyfriend and I celebrate every month, the day we got together.... sometimes its something simple such as just saying "Happy Mensiversary" (which is a month-anniversary!) or sometimes we exchange gifts :)

    You are so beautiful and the pumpkin patch looks amazing! I love anything with a petting zoo, and your bone (?) jewelry is awesome!

    And your pumpkin design is so kooky cute! Love the nose <33
