Fall has arrived, leaves are falling, the air is crisp and the pumpkin spice latte is back. Fall means that the year is slowly coming to an end but it is a great season and I am so excited for all the fall activities and just because the evenings will arrive much quicker and the weather won’t always be perfect it doesn't mean there isn't a lot to look forward to this Fall.
Fall means that we’ll all have more time to do the things we don’t feel like doing during summer, because we’d rather be outdoors, enjoying the weather. Things like reading, cooking, writing, taking long baths, cleaning your wardrobe and watching your favourite returning shows. Here are some of the best things about Fall.
CATCHING UP ON READING
One of my goals this fall is to try to read more books. I really want to start reading new books, and discover new authors. Those long, rainy autumn evenings are perfect for cuddling up with a book and a glass of wine or a cup of tea. Here’s hoping I’ll be able to finish reading everything from my current to-read list!
SPENDING TIME IN THE KITCHEN
Cooking is one of my favorite things to do. When the weather is cool I love to spend time in the kitchen and cook new dishes and bake goodies. There is no greater feeling then spending the evening cooking up a storm and having the house smell great while hosting a great family dinner. I’m dying to try some new seasonal recipes I have looked up.
I think this is the one I really excited about. The weather is just starting to cool and can’t wait to dig out my favorites knits and boots. We have had some rainy cool days in Vancouver and it was nice to get the cozy sweaters out. Sweater weather is a favourite of mine, but don't get me wrong scarfs are up there along with hats.
CLEANING UP + ORGANIZING EVERYTHING AROUND THE HOUSE
This year, I have told myself that instead of waiting until Spring to do all my cleaning out my mission is to do it before the new year. Now that the weather is not ideal to be outside all the time I don't feel guilty for spending my weekend indoors cleaning out my closet and organizing.
ALL MY FAVOURITE TV SHOWS RETURN
Okay I admit it I do have a few guilty pleasures I am addicted to. The Fall is when all me returning shows come back with new episodes. Some of my faves started last week and after a long day its nice to settle in for a night of great tv.
This, is what I’m looking forward to the most. I want to actually start reading the magazines I buy. Having a hour-long at-home pamper sessions once in a while, because well, I deserve it. Cooking those big meals, having family and friends over and actually eating at the table.
These are some of the things I think are the best about Fall, what are some of your favorite things you look forward to in the Fall?
