Happy first official day of Fall, y’all! Even though it’s just technically started, I might have already been craving pumpkin spice lattes, wearing dark nail polish, and hoping for the temperature to fall below 80 degrees so I can finally put on my favorite over sized sweater (#basic, I know) for a few weeks now.

Fall is my favorite season of the year – there is just something special about this time of  year, especially in the South. The air is crisp, the leaves are changing, and college football fills our televisions and stadiums. Autumn is meant to be spent outdoors.

To help embrace the changing seasons and the coming cooler weather, I’ve put a list together of the top 10 destinations to visit in the US during the fall. It’s hard to narrow it down, but I gave it a solid effort. There are only two on the list I’ve yet to visit!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I hope everyone is enjoying the unofficial start to summer! But in between the beach, cookouts, and pool time, take a moment to remember why we’re able to enjoy those activities this weekend. All gave some, some gave all.

Summertime is around the corner, which means that it’s almost prime time for visiting the beach. Growing up with family in the pan handle of Florida meant that I was at the beach every summer since I was 7 years old. Despite getting sand in some not so great places, I continue to head down there for some fun in the sun year after year.

The problem is I always forget to pack the essentials, or I’ll see someone else on the beach with something and think of how brilliant it was they brought something. In order to keep y’all from making my mistakes, here’s a list of what I think are 12 necessities to pack when you’re headed to the beach!
