Autumn has arrived! There is (finally) a chill in the air, the leaves are turning golden, and everything is pumpkin flavoured!!! Don’t you just LOVE fall… To jump right into the topic at hand, this post will get you all geared up for the celebrating this season to the fullest. Preparations, traditions, classic movies and yummy heart warming foods, and of course, a seasonal bucket list! (And also a free printout for you to start your own list of must-do’s!)
The point here that you may or may not have realized yet (depends on how long you have been married or living on your own as an adult) is that the seasons are beautiful, but they are sort of like an apple on a tree. Yes, they will show up and be pretty without you doing anything or putting forth any effort, and you can stare at that gorgeous ripe apple and have a great time doing so! But, that little apple is full of potential, and it is up to you to pick it, and then decide if you should eat it, dip it in caramel, bake it into a pie, or squeeze it into cider. You have to grab fall by the branches and shake out all the leaves of fun it has to offer! This really applies to any season and holiday, because the adults in our lives went to efforts to make these times special for us as kids. Now, YOU are the adult in your life, and it’s your turn! Even if you don’t have kids! Haha! So get out there and make this season special, and help out everyone else who may be feeling that little tinge of melancholy that comes with growing one autumn older.
And what a great season to start with! I am so excited people! Woot woot!
