Fall is just around the corner. Leaves are falling, skies are getting a little greyer (over here in Vancouver, especially), and Starbucks is back at it again with the PSLs. But, saying goodbye to summer is bittersweet, which is why we’ve come up with a list of reasons to be excited for fall.
September brings on feelings of new beginnings.
Long walks on cool days.
Red, yellow and orange leaves crunching under your feet.
Fall scented candles.
Your house is nice and cool.
Halloween is just around the corner, so we can pretend to be kids again for a day.
Thanksgiving is also just around the corner, which is the ultimate excuse for a cheat day.
Soup is no longer just for rainy days and hangovers.
Slow-cooked meals are an option, without the risk of overheating.
All the good TV shows are back.
Fall fashion is back, toques and mittens can come out to play.
Warm drinks, like apple cider are in full rotation.
Autumn is the perfect season to snuggle up and watch Netflix, guilt free.
Besides pumpkin spice, pumpkin everything. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin carving.
Curling up by a fireplace.
And an extra hour of darkness means an extra hour of sleep.
If you aren’t convinced, here are some fun things you can get up to this fall:
- Apple picking
- Visit a pumpkin patch
- Carve the pumpkin you find
- Get lost in a corn maze
- Go for a hike
- Plan a Halloween party
- Bake a pumpkin pie
- Make a ton of chilli
- Go to a haunted house
- Have a potluck
- Make fall themed cocktails
- Watch a scary movie
- Go to the mountains
- Make crafts with fallen leaves
- Read a book by the fire
