Pumpkin Spice

Tee: Gap; Jeans: Gap; Boots: Lulu's (old)

Confession: I hate pumpkin-anything. No pumpkin pie. No pumpkin spice. No PSLs. It's not a flavor I grew up with and it isn't a flavor I've grown to like. Sorry, Ben!

Around the holidays my dessert is wine. And dessert wine. And boozy holiday cocktails.

But we never miss a chance to u-pick, and so some pumpkins slide in under the radar in the form of a pumpkin patch visit. We went this year in late September, right when the patches opened and all the vines were still intact and the field was 100% empty of others. In other words, perfect. We try to seek out farms that have no stands for grilled corn or apple cider or donuts. And there is no credit card machine and just a little family with their pumpkin patch selling giant, gorgeous gourds on the cheap. Columbia Farms on Sauvie is our go-to for blueberries in the summer and pumpkins in the fall. It's wonderfully low-key and gorgeous.

Also of note, Ben made me pull him in the cart for the entire pumpkin patch visit... :|
