October is a time to get outdoors and enjoy nature. It is also a time to not take yourself seriously, and have fun!

Watch a Halloween Movie

Some of my favorites are:

  • Hocus Pocus
  • The Craft

Go Pumpkin Picking

Once you pick your pumpkin, try:

  • Carving a pumpkin
  • Using the pumpkin as a vase for a floral arrangement
  • Decorate your front stoop
  • Roast the seeds
  • Use the inside for baking

Dress Up for Halloween

I love getting dressed up for Halloween, especially with home-made costumes. To give you some inspiration, some of my costumes from Halloweens past are:

  • Lucille Ball from I Love Lucy
  • Ursula the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid
  • An old man
  • An old woman (do you see a trend lol?)
  • A Lion
  • Lady Gaga in a “meat” dress

Embrace the Flavors of Fall

Autumn is my favorite time of year when it comes to flavors and scents. Some ideas to try are:

  • Order a PSL (pumpkin spice latte)
  • Buy fresh apple cider
  • Rim a glass with cinnamon and sugar and pour in a pumpkin beer
  • Make candied apples with local apples
  • Burn your favorite fall scented candles
  • Make a fall “potpourri” by putting orange and apple slices in a small crockpot with cinnamon sticks, whole cloves and water, turn heat to high and keep the cover off (check in and add water as needed)
