Happy first day of Autumn! This is my favourite season of all, and I'm ecstatic that it's finally starting to get chilly. These past days, it has been raining where I live and the sound of the rain and the wind makes me incredibly happy. The only downfall is that my dog can't play in the garden outside while it rains, but she's managed to make a playground in the sofas and beds.
As you can tell, I really love Autumn. I wait so fervently for this season and I find myself planning all sorts of activities and ways to make the most of these wonderful months. A few reasons why enjoy it so much is because there are some amazing holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving, my birthday is during fall (November 8th in case you're wondering), the regular TV series are back, you get to wear cute clothes like jeans, boots, cardigans and coats, nature's color palette completely transforms into these beautiful hues of red and oranges, you get to drink warm teas and ciders and honestly life seems so much cozier and happier in Autumn.
That's why in honour of the Autumnal Equinox, I wanted to write down all the things and activities I want to do as well as some places that I will love to visit. This will help me plan what I'll be doing during Autumn but it also might give some of you ideas on how to make the most of this season.
