Life Lately: October

OCTOBER: As it does ever year, October flew by, filled with trips to the pumpkin patch, decorating with mums, having a ball at the Circleville Pumpkin Show, picking apples, breaking out my sweaters + boots… and Nic and I even squeezed in a mini staycation in Columbus, which was nice for a parents’ night out! I hope you had a fantastic month! I’m working on holiday content right n

A Hike with a View

In honor of today being National Take a Hike Day, I thought I’d share one of Nic and I’s favorite hikes we took this Fall! If you’ve never been to Rising Park in Lancaster, Ohio, it’s worth the short drive from Central Ohio on 33 East. The park has a pond, picnic tables, playgrounds, shelter houses, tennis courts, etc.

It’s true that you only have some opportunities once a year and I believe everyone could benefit from a fun to-do list.
