Fall is my favorite season. and every once in a while, here in Nova Scotia, we get a true full Fall season lasting 2 months and full of bright colorful leaves, sweater weather and warm cozy vibes.
On those cosy days, a good fall movie goes so much further than usual. And this year, I have a little girl who wants to binge watch them all with me. I took to social media and asked everyone to round up their favourite autumn themed movies so that I can list them all for you and start picking away at them.
Here’s what they said:
Poppy and I LOVE Gilmore girls and have started to watch an episode a night since summer vacation started. If you dont know about it yet (living under a rock) its about the relationship between a Teen mom and her now teenager daughter in a small closeknit town and it all ways gives fall cozy vibes in every episode.
