This fall I have decided to be intentional about making memories with my husband and going on more adventures. It can be easy to get caught up in tedious tasks and forget to live in each season, each moment. A couple weeks ago I shared my Fall Bucket List with all of you. Yesterday, I decided it was time to take action and crossed quite a few things off my list. I began to search for fun fall festivals in our area, and I came across Sleepy Hollow Farm. It offered a ton of things on my bucket list, but it offered one thing extra….They shot scenes from Stranger Things at this Farm!As a background actor, I have many friends who have worked on this production, but I haven’t had the chance to work on it. I was so excited to find out that we could check out this filming location. So, let’s get to the fun!
I have only been to one corn maze in my life, and it was a haunted one. I am shocked that I was ever talked into going to a maze filled with clowns with chainsaws. This was definitely a nice change of pace, even though it was still pretty challenging!Pumpkin Patch
Honesty moment: The pumpkin patch was a little pathetic. In all fairness, we did wait until the week of Halloween to go. The field was completely empty, but they did have a few left near the gift shop. Games
This place would be perfect if you have a child! They had a ton of cute games for kids. We had a good time watching all of the fun(we even did a few of the little games ourselves).FoodSweet potato tots and friend pickles? Sign me up! Petting Zoo
We got to hit yet another thing on my fall bucket list. Towards the front of the farm, they had adorable goats, bunnies, sheep, pigs, and ponies. Anyone who knows me, knows that I turn into mush around cute animals. Goats always crack me up because they can actually be pretty feisty. I always remember to be wary of the horns and hide my fingers. What they lack in kindness, they definitely makeup in being adorable.Apple Cider
We bought some delicious cider at their gift shop. It was the perfect thing to sip on as we decorated our pumpkin.Decorating A Pumpkin
Timothy and I haven’t decorated a pumpkin since we were kids. We grabbed some paint from hobby lobby and channeled our inner artists. Being a huge Harry Potter nerd, I knew that was the direction I wanted to go. I think they turned out pretty well!At the end of the day, I got to cross off five things from my bucket list. It makes me feel good to know that I am making steps to cherish every moment. The little things we do in life can make all of the difference.
What have you done this week to sow into yourself?
