This sangria is so simple I’m almost embarrassed to post it. ALMOST, because it’s just too dang good not to share. Anyway, who said something has to be difficult to be delicious? In fact a lot of cultures will argue just a few good ingredients treated well are all you need for a great dish.

Since it’s officially fall and in the first week of October, I’ve been going crazy for everything and anything autumn. I spent nearly 2 hours looking at home decorations online and have already gone out and bought a bunch. Once I’ve finished decorating maybe I’ll do a post (if anyone is interested?). Also, can’t forget some fall favorites– my husband and I have had pumpkin lattes (homemade of course), caramel apples, apple cider, and pumpkin risotto. I don’t think he’s as obsessed with fall as me, but at least he’s a good sport.

Last year I created a pretty extensive fall bucket list which I hope to repeat this year. I would also like to add to 2018’s list: wear dark lipstick, go to a haunted house, and create the perfect halloween costume. What are some of your fall traditions? What are you excited for this autumn? Let me know in the comments, and cheers!
