20 Autumn Date Ideas

   There's something magical about when the summer heat and humidity turns into crisp fall weather. This time of year has a special sort of wonder to it. We got engaged in October 2015, got married in October 2016 -- and some of our most memorable times together have been spent on Autumn adventures.

   As we come up on our first wedding anniversary, we'll be celebrating by taking a mini weekend trip and enjoying all of the things that make this time of year so lovely. We also wanted to share 20 of our favorite Autumn date ideas, perfect when you're lacking inspiration and want to make sure you're slowing down to enjoy the season the fullest.

   Fun fact- these photos were taken back when the two of us first started dating. They are still some of my favorites of the two of us and it's easy to see how in love we were, even then.
