10 Things that make me Happy in the Fall

A few months ago I was challenged to write a post about 10 Things that make me Happy. I was so excited to write it until I started!

I immediately thought of about 3 things and then drew a blank!!!

Can you believe that? A blank! I was suppose to write about 10 items and I only had 3!

Well, needless to say after a few more minutes I easily had my 10, plus so many more I decided to do seasonal editions! And here’s my first one – Fall!!!

By far my most favorite season. And you’ll see my reasons why below πŸ™‚ Enjoy!


What can I say? I love football, and no, it’s not because of the tight uniforms!!! Being exposed to football at a young age, going to college games with my family when I was little probably has something to do with it. Have you ever seen one of those little kids at the bottom of the bleachers cheering along with the cheerleaders, I never did do it but boy I wanted too πŸ™‚ I love the sportsmanship, the skill….the food at games πŸ™‚

Marching band

I know, this may sound a little nerdy but I was in marching band in high school and loved it! It was by far the best part of my high school career. I think part of it was the performing aspect of it, memorizing the songs and learning the formations, but it was also the comradery that I had with everyone else in the band that made it so special.

Corn maze

What can I say? I love a good corn maze. Now, I’ll be honest, I’m not really interested in just mindlessly walking around a maze but if it has some game or process as part of it I’m all in πŸ™‚ There are some that have quizzes or local informationΒ as you reach certain points, some have maps and some none, but my favorite by far is Tom’s Maze in Ohio.

The leaves! If you’ve ever seen the leaves changing colors you know what I’m talking about. The colors – red, orange, yellow. I think they are so beautiful!!! The smell of the leavings when they are being raked. And when was the last time you jumped in the leaves. Me, it’s been too long but if I’m lucky, this fall πŸ™‚

Crisp air

Does the crisp air make you happy in the fall? The air is getting cooler, there’s a fresh smell in the mornings. It always make me think of everything on this list πŸ™‚ You get to start bundling up in over-sized sweaters (see below :)) and evenings by the fireplace are right around the corner.

Over-sized sweater

Yes πŸ™‚ over-sized sweaters! You get to start wearing those large, comfy, cozy sweaters. You know that crisp air we just talked about? With these you’ll be able to wrap yourself up in warmth and just be so comfortable. Curl up with a good book; wrap yourself up while watching a great football game; go outside and play with your family! So go, find your large, comfy, cozy sweaters πŸ™‚

I know, this is something that can be done in other seasons too but why not hike when there are beautiful leaves to look at and the air is cooler which means you’ll be cooler. The below picture was taken several years ago in Colorado and I enjoyed the hike so much!

Apple picking

When was the last time you went apple picking? It’s definitely a fun thing to do! Take some time this fall and grab your friends, your family, your neighbors and go apple picking! And be prepared to bring home too many apples to eat πŸ™‚ Speaking of, did you know it’s extremely easy to make your own apple sauce? No? Well, it is. Simply cut and core your apples. It doesn’t need to be perfect but cubes will work great. Then add the cubed apples to a pot with some water that will cover the apples. Cook on medium/high heat until a a fork goes into the apples easily. Then use a masher or blender – and you’ve got your apple sauce!!! Super easy.

Pumpkin carving

When as the last time you carved a pumpkin? Before my son was born it had been years. But why? It’s not just an activity for kids or ‘families’. Actually the last time I had carved a pumpkin was with a friend. She and I got some pumpkins, carved them and then Β baked the seeds. yum πŸ™‚
