Family fall activities are the best!
Let’s get basic. I’m talking PSLs, scarves, boots, and pictures in a pumpkin patch. Don’t know what a PSL is? You’re not basic. And that’s basically okay! (Okay, okay, enough with the jokes).
It’s time to enjoy all the cliches and wonderful events that Autumn brings, basic or otherwise!
