Autumn Musts

Last year I dropped the ball on fall.  There were quite a few things that I simply forgot to do that are really some of the things that make the season so special.  This year, I am not going to neglect any of them because I’m making a list and I’m sticking to it.


One – Being outside in the fall is my absolute favorite.  I love the briskness in the air and watching the leaves change.  When I was in college I used to visit the nearby state park at least once a week just to get out.  I don’t really have anywhere like that in Charlotte and I so miss it.  This fall I intend to remedy this by trying out some nearby trails and definitely at least one mountain hike.

Two – Last year I didn’t have one caramel apple.  Not one.  Major screw up.  This is literally my favorite fall treat.  I’m going to have about 100 this year.

Three – For some reason, whenever I try to read one of the classics that I haven’t yet, I can never get into them.  Pride and Prejudice I can read all day every day, but I can’t get past the 10th page of Great Expectations.  This fall, it’s happening.

Four – My absolute favorite thing that we did last year (other than the Harry Potter party, obvs) was going to the haunted trail and pumpkin patch at Scarrigan Farms.  There is a rock quarry that you hang out in before (which made me feel like we were in a 90’s teen movie because who hangs out in a rock quarry) and the haunted trail is one of the best I’ve been to.  That is saying a lot because I go to at least one a year and am rarely impressed.  I cannot wait for us to go again.

What things are you guys looking forward to this fall?

    I have Great Expectations if you want to borrow it. I am in for all of these things and I CAN NOT WAIT! We should go to Chimney Rock but we need to find out if the Mohican Trail is open first.

    I am looking forward to all our Garden Club meeting where we will be enjoying different gardens and field trips. We will have activities to enjoy each season with friends from September until May.
    Wish we could get to the North Carolina mountains!
