Welcome Fall! How Do I Love Thee?October 16, 2020
Fall is here, and is one of our favorite times of the year! From beautifully colored leaves to incredible Halloween costumes, let’s take a look at a few of our favorite things about the season. And then, let’s get festive and start to celebrate!
#1 Leaves and Autumn Walks
We love to take daily walks and make sure to get fresh air every single day. The autumn makes it easy to do that. The fall leaves turn colors just beautifully, as we see a rainbow of warm, vibrant leaves atop trees and covering the grassy hills. We can go on long walks just to see what kinds of leaves we find, or we can go driving in the hills for some lovely leaf peeping. The colors of fall are awe-inspiring!
#2 Fall Crafts
We may think it’s only for kids but collecting beautifully colored leaves is a timeless pastime. Pick out a handful of your favorite colored leaves, from the rich purples to the vibrant yellows, and make a collage, a card, or simply file it away in your journal. Gorgeous! Need more inspiration? Country Living put together a wonderful list of fall leaf crafts; we love it!
#3 Halloween Costumes!
October 31st is just around the corner, and you know what that means: Halloween! We absolutely love dressing up for Halloween. From community costume parties to spooky craft parties, Halloween stirs our imaginations and some of our favorite memories from childhood. We’re always so impressed by the costumes our residents come up with. Check out these 5 amazing costume ideas from awhile back; our residents always know how to bring the creativity and FUN!
#4 Delicious Autumn Treats
From pumpkin pie to apple pie to pumpkin spice lattes, autumn is full of delicious treats to enjoy! We love these fall recipes from Bon Appetit. From sweet potatoes to rich mac ‘n cheese, you’ll love the variety from their selection.
When we think of fall, we think of cozy nights in to read and drink tea. What else do we think of? Warming and delicious SOUP! We put together a list of our favorite soups earlier this year, and we have to say, they do hold up quite well!
Enjoy the beautiful autumn light, colors, and weather. And be sure to wear your cute scarves and gloves. Share with us on Facebook YOUR favorite things about fall!
