Make a trip to the pumpkin patch- There are many wonderful fun pumpkin patches close. In most cases you can google and find a few within a very short distance. In my case I have 3 within a 30 minute drive.

 Host a harvest party or attend a harvest festival- Sounds like fun! Just think yummy comfort food, apple cider, candy apples and all sorts of pumpkin festivities.

Plan your Halloween costume- Halloween is just around the corner… yea I said it, start planning.

Take your Christmas card photo- Take advantage of the mild weather and23755393_10213352616422567_2171210852533650504_n beautiful colors of the changing leaves.

 Go apple picking- I love the idea picking fresh fruit and bringing it home to your family. I Googled apple picking farms and hound many within a 40 min of my house.

 Decorate your home decor for fall- This is seriously one of my favorite things to do. I am a big fan of  decorating your home with pumpkins, leaves and pine cones

 Visit a vineyard during the grape harvest- Hopefully, you are lucky enough to live within driving distance of a wine-growing region, early autumn is an ideal time to visit. With the grape harvest coming in, the vineyards have a ton of things going on including special events and festivals.

 Grateful? Start a journal- Being grateful for everything in your everyday life is a joyous  habit. I am going to start this and start encouraging myself by dedicating a special journal to this purpose. Aim to write down at least one thing each day that you are grateful for. In a year revisit this and see how far you’ve come.

Hike in the fall foliage -Taking a walk through the beauty of nature is a great way to unwind and get your cardio on. Bring your spouse, a friend or your kids and enjoy the golden scenery.

Enjoy dinner outdoors- I love cool nights of fall. Pack a blanket and eat outside. Complete your meal with hot apple cider and pumpkin pie.

Host a bonfire- Heat up the cold nights with a fire pit for a bonfire while you still can. Roast hot dogs, s’mores and enjoy great time with those you love most. Flannel is optional.
