Fall in Love With Fall
By Donna Stark
The fall season is one of my favorite times of year. The hot sweaty days of summer are slowly making their departure and are being replaced with a crisp coolness in the air that always seems to cleanse my soul. If you are a summer lover, you may not feel the same as I do and you may be fighting some feelings of sadness as you watch the temperatures drop, but that doesn't mean you can't take advantage of everything that fall has to offer. It may not be your favorite, but if you give fall a chance, you may start to find some happiness in your days. Here are some tips on how to enjoy the season of pumpkins.
Even if you aren't a fan of "everything pumpkin spice," there are plenty of new flavors that come with fall and boy, are they good! Think hot chocolate, apple cider, pumpkin pie, butternut squash soup, and Thanksgiving favorites. Filling your tummy is truly the best way to experience a particular season.
Go ahead and pack up the beach shells. It's going to be OK and nothing gets you ready for a special time of the year as much as decorating does. So put some pumpkins and corn stalks by your door, pull out the scented candles, and replace the brightly colored sofa pillows with those that add some golden warmth.
Don't let the drop in temperature keep you from enjoying the outdoors. It's the perfect time to pull out your boots, jacket, and sweatshirts for some cool days under the warm sun. It's not too hot and it hasn't dropped down into the single digits yet, so take advantage of Mother Nature's beauty and head outside for some fun!
Whether you are exploring a nearby city, picking apples, selecting your favorite pumpkin, or trying to find your way out of a corn maze, taking part in fall activities is a great way to experience everything the season has to offer. And with so many options to choose from, there is sure to be a favorite activity for everyone!
Fire it Up
Fall is one of the best times to hang out with loved ones around a fire pit, so grab the matches and gather everyone around! The crackling fire and cool air mixed with hot cider, graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate, create the perfect scenario for nights filled with laughter, cuddling, and a ghost story or two.
Fall in Love With Fall
No matter what the season, it's always good to enjoy the moment you are presently in, so take the time to make the best out of it and remember that seasons come and go. Let yourself fall in love with fall and enjoy it while you can!
