We’ve learned that with our first “holiday” while living and working on the road means we tend to miss out on some of the usual Fall festivities that we grew to love growing up in Michigan: the apple orchard visits with freshly-made cider and donuts, crisp Fall day-hikes along Lake Michigan, college football Saturdays (for me, not so much Kendra), and heck — even raking leaves. We’ve been able to watch the leaves turn as we gradually venture south, but it hasn’t been quite the same.

One day while we stayed in a Target parking lot between state stops, which we do often (thank you, Target, Cabela’s, and Wal-Mart), Kendra bought a faux pumpkin along with some acrylic paints and brushes to bring a little Fall feeling to our Airstream[HAS HEART] edition, of course!

It took longer than either of us expected to finish, but it’s become a nice little touch of Fall for us while we travel and set-up home in different parking lots and RV parks. I’m not sure if we’ll get any trick-or-treaters, but I’ll be sure to have my favorite candy ready, just in case ;)

Even though we won’t be dressing up this year, we shared some of our favorite costumes over the years on our @hasheart.us Instagram page. We want to see your favorite costumes, too! Tag #hashearthalloween on your Instagram posts.
