It’s no surprise that Fall is one of my favorite seasons out of the year. That first chill in the air brings promise of magic about to happen. From the changing colors in nature, to the Halloween spirit and nights snuggling up under blankets with a warm cup of tea or cocoa, I tend to embrace everything about this season. Although there is much to do in Summer under the heat of the warm sun, I find that Fall has so much more to offer. Let me remind you of things to do during this wonderful month.
Take pictures of changing leaves
Go on a nature walk
Eat as much pumpkin flavored goodies as you can
Go apple picking and bake a homemade pie
Go on a hayride (through an orchard or haunted trail if you’re not a scaredy cat like me!)
Collect pretty leaves and preserve them
Pick pumpkins and carve or paint them
Roast your own pumpkin for homemade purée and don’t forget to keep the seeds for roasting, too!
Go horseback riding through the woods
Decorate for Halloween
Hike a new trail
Go canoeing on a crisp, fall day
Visit the beach during off season
Make S’mores over a fire
Enjoy a warm glass of mulled wine
Buy yourself a new sweater
Break out the dark nail polish and deep, red lips
Visit a Fall festival
Watch Halloween favorites like Hocus Pocus and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Let’s face it – we’ll all be cursing once Winter arrives. We might as well enjoy this short little season before Winter pushes its harsh way through!
What are your plans for October?
