13 Fun Things for Fall

  1. Corn or Sunflower Maze or if you do don't like mazes, just go for the fun photos!
  2. Apple picking is the best. Then you can make homemade apple sauce, cinnamon apple oatmeal, apple pie, or snack on apples and peanut butter, my personal favorite.
  3. Leaf piles! I used to rake leaves into piles for my kids to jump into.  They loved it when they were little. If your kids are big like mine, use it as an outreach to rake an older (or super busy) person’s yard.
  4. Dress up your dog in a costume and take pics...or just laugh as he tries to get out of it.
  5. Take a drive in the mountains and ask your girlfriend to marry you. 😍 Clayton proposed to me on the top of a mountain in Lineville Gorge in October on peak leaf season. Best day ever!!
  6. Camping in the fall is perfect. Bonfires, s’mores, hiking, canoeing....sounds like heaven to me. 
  7. Revised Camping for if you can’t make it into the wild woods. Recreate the experience in your backyard. We used to camp on our deck when our kids were afraid of the dark. The beauty of this is that a clean restroom is just a couple of doors away.
  8. Flowers: Buy some mums To decorate your front porch!!
  9. Rest. Curl up on your porch in a hammock and take a nap or read a good book.
  10. Cook a new fall favorite. Make Cinnamon Butternut Squash Pancakes with maple syrup or honey.
  11. Take lots of pictures. Find an old barn or field and do a photo shoot in a new sweater or scarf.
  12. Paint and carve pumpkins. Maybe even have a pumpkin carving contest.
  13. Take the opportunity to scare your husband with Spiders and clowns because you really only get this excuse once a year.
