Autumnal Update

My favorite season in general and my favorite season in Ireland has finally arrived. I basically love pumpkin anything, all the fall colors, chunky knit sweaters and my riding boots crunching (stomping) all the leaves. It’s a very autumnal October and I’m all bundled up at the train station brainstorming where to take my blog next. I’ve an upcoming Amsterdam trip planned for Thanksgiving next month. I’ve never been and I am very, very stoked. Every year I throw a big dinner party abroad but this year will be a new spin on it. I’m also hoping to get to Madrid in January after my exams with the same group of friends from the Netherlands trip. I’m wondering whether to go beyond just travel and Irish life on here. As of right now I’d love to do posts on yoga, self care, fashion, uni organization AND more travel. If you have suggestions get in touch (my Instagram is @redheadamerican)!

I’ve been a busy bee lately. Uni is in full swing. I’ve been settling in during the week and heading away on weekends to see people and hit the town with them. Final year is obviously more intense and it’s taken some adjustment. It just takes being organized and quite focused. One year left and I’m looking forward to finishing. I can’t believe how fast it has all gone by. Feels just like yesterday my dad left me at my freshmen accommodation and I was an eager little fresher. Graduation next fall seems like a faraway dream, eeeek!

I LOVE fall in Massachusetts too. Well, let’s say all of New England. The foliage is beautiful. People from all over go on foliage tours near where I’m from just to see the scenes change. Pumpkins are literally all over house doorsteps, shop fronts and most importantly Dunkin’ Donuts (I miss and love you, Dunkin’. I’ll be home for Peppermint Mocha season, I promise). Ooooh I can’t wait for all things Christmas! But first to enjoy all that fall brings. Halloween, Amsterdam and Thanksgiving first, I must pace myself.

Throwback to last year’s peppermint mocha season – clearly looking content!

Right, that’s all for now. Let me know what you would like to see if you are interested.
