Saturday DO: Embrace Fall

I’ve always been a summer person, and as the season begins to transition to fall, it sometimes tends to bring me down a bit.  I do love fall and everything that comes with it, but it’s the foreboding sense of winter’s chill that hangs over me.  Less sunlight can mean less energy, and the winter months are known to cause Seasonal Affective Disorder, something I definitely tend to suffer from in winter.  But this year I want to embrace fall.  I want to fully enjoy the magic of this season, even its tiniest details like the stunning change of colors in the leaves.  It’s breathtaking if you think about it, and it’s also so fleeting (much like the blooming of cherry blossoms in spring).  I want to spend as much time as possible outdoors, appreciating the fact that I can still wear lighter layers without freezing, and relish in the cozy sweaters and socks and beanies that come with the season.  I’ve found that I get so caught up in my love of summer, that I forget to truly appreciate the beauty that is fall.  Today, embrace fall for everything it holds.  Go apple picking, collect some leaves (and paint them!) and admire their beautiful shades of rust, gold, and burnt sienna. Take an evening walk bundled up in your favorite sweater and listen to the leaves crunching beneath your feet.

What’s your favorite way to spend a fall day?

  1. Perfect fall day would include bundling up in a huge knitted sweater, taking my bike and riding in the sunny and colourful forest with my best friend and then make some pumpkin soup and eat it while watching old movies in dim light. Perfect is too little for a day like that.

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE this post! fall is the most inspiring and beautiful season in my opinion. I always become to reflective and self-observing. I always change things in the fall, much more so than in spring. If you think about it in a sort of morbid way… haha… it’s the most beautiful and graceful death. the leaves change into these incredible colors and shades you can’t help but stare at in amazement, the air takes on this crispness and clearness…. I just love everything about it. And living in southern california, I really don’t get the full effect of it which I am so sad about!! But i embrace every ounce of fall we get and use it to the fullest :) I went apple picking last year!! best fall day I’ve ever had and I plan on going again this year! It’s a time to be cozy, reflective of how you spent the last year, light candles, make delicious comforting food, cuddle in a blanket with those you love and be a home-body :)

  3. Fall is my absolute favorite season, the smells, the colors, oh and my birthday! :) I’m super excited about our mini trip (2hr drive) to hot springs to take in the changing leaves and pick up crystals.
