Transitioning To Fall


The Fall Season marks the transition from Summer to Winter. This means we can pull out our sweaters as we head outside to enjoy the vibrant colors of fall foliage or fill stadiums for football games.  We pull up a seat at our favorite coffee shops for pumpkin spice latte or hot apple cider. Some time in October we choose a costume for parties or to go trick-or-treating.  


Here at My Rooftop Stories we are sharing stories of our favorite traditions with you as inspiration for your transition from Summer to Winter.  We hope our stories give you ideas for your own Fall traditions with your family and friends.

Now as one of the newest Sun Devils at Arizona State University, there are so many cool places that I desire to explore here in the Valley. Besides the college Halloween parties, I am excited to venture to the Fear Farm, a haunted house in Phoenix. Apparently, from the city, you can hear screams from the farm. I'm interested to see which of my friends will be first to scream. ~ Elon


Making Memories at Washington Farms since 2016

It is impossible to be faced with boredom at the University of Georgia. There are activities, socials, events, and places to visit that require the attention of every student attending the university. There are specific things to do each season, so Fall is no exception. Every time October rolls around, college kids rush to Washington Farms, a family-owned farm that emphasizes familial values while promoting fun for all. On my first vi
