Fall to me has always meant going on adventures, whether they be weekend road trips or just a jaunt in the park down the street. Things on my autumn to-do list usually include apple picking, pumpkin patch-ing, corn maze-ing, and finding a fun hayride—I know: They’re all cliches, but they’re classics for a reason! The problem with adventures is that things sometimes go awry. Knees are scraped, weather changes, and any number of little emergencies tend to pop up when I’m away from home. That’s why I like carrying tote bags if I’m making a day of it—they can fit all of my essentials without looking bulky!
