I absolutely love fall. The colours, the smells, yummy fall food, Thanksgiving, Halloween, cozy clothes, Starbucks salted caramel mochas – sign me up! I particularly enjoy October, as it’s the month that my husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary and I feel that it’s perfectly acceptable to watch Hocus Pocus every day.
Playing in the leaves when I was a kid
Here are some of the fall favourites in our house:
Cozy sweaters: I recently bought some new sweaters from Zara. They are super soft and warm, making them perfect for Canadian falls and winters.
Apple crisp: My favourite fall dessert is apple crisp – especially when it’s accompanied by some vanilla ice cream. Apple crisp tastes best when it’s made with apples fresh from the orchard.
Halloween movies/tv specials: Hocus Pocus has been my all time favourite Halloween movie since I was a kid. You can usually find me watching it at any given time during the year, but I watch it way too much during October. Another fall favourite is It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. This year we also added Toy Story of Terror to our list of Halloween specials to watch.
Salted caramel mochas: I’m not a pumpkin spice person (please don’t hate me!), but I love salted caramel mocha season. This drink keeps me content until the red cups come out after Halloween.
Football: Football Sunday is a tradition in our house, as I discussed in this post here.
Pumpkin carving: My husband and I aren’t very artsy. Our pumpkin carving skills are sub par, but we enjoy picking out our pumpkin and a design to carve into it. No Halloween is complete without a pumpkin on our front step.
Leaves changing colour: We live in the country and the fall colours are BEAUTIFUL out here. I love taking family walks around our neighbourhood and watching the leaves change. I also love the sound of crunchy leaves under our feet.
