It is that time of year again when the leaves are falling, and the city is painted in warm colours of the sunrise. Fall marks the time of year when the weather is slowly getting colder. Before you know it, the first sight of snowflakes will begin drifting slowly, indicating the start of winter. Fall is the time to bundle yourself up in scarves and warm clothing, sip on a cup of warm tea in your hands, and walk on the crunchy leaves beneath your feet as you head towards your destination. Take advantage of the scenery around you by breathing in the fresh air. Do me a favor and jump in a pile of fresh, autumn leaves, will you? 😉
Below are a list of things you should try to do or continue to do as the weeks go by. Grasp onto this opportunity, and have a little fun before the leaves turn into snow, because time passes by in a blink of an eye!
1. A Walk in The Park
Tis’ the season to wear boots, sweaters and scarves! While the sky is still bright, take the chance to call up your friends, and family. Catch up on the little things you’ve missed, and find out how they are doing. It’s time to put your technology aside and to engage in real conversations.
2. Head to a Pumpkin Patch
Simply put, you’re never too old to go pick out the best looking pumpkin. Pull out the boots, and a warm jacket, and get going. Don’t just pick the first one, but rather take the time to find something even better. Seek a good adventure!
3. Pumpkin Carving
While some of you may not go trick-or-treating anymore, don’t forget the fun of pumpkin carving! Instead of going to the mall or watching a movie, why not stay at home and get your hands dirty? Bring out the carving knives and challenge your creativity as you carve one amazing pumpkin! Whether it is a simple smily face, or an elaborate carving of despicable me characters, have a little fun with it. So go to the supermarket, or pick one up from the pumpkin patch. Do it! Start the journey of carving!
4. Attend a Floral Arrangement Class
I love fall bouquets, as they are way different from the spring and summer flowers. The bright orange, and red colours blend perfectly, giving off comfort. Learning to make your own bouquet by attending a class is roughly the same cost as purchasing the bouquet. But, you get an added bonus. Attending a class will give you the skills that you need to arrange your own bouquet in the future! Plus, it’s a great place to make new friends!
If you’re in the Vancouver area and want to learn, sign up for Queensberry Flowers classes. They are affordable and fun!

5. Start your Fall Wardrobe
Do some cleaning! This might be boring, but take out your summer clothes and go to the mall to pick up some fall clothes! Hang out with your girlfriends and play dress-up in the fitting rooms. Ask your friends to pick up something new and nice for you to try on and you never know, maybe you will end up liking them.
