Please don't hate me. Believe me, it's not a popular thing to say, but I do not love fall like most people do. This week, I went on a quest to try to fall in like with the season. I posed the question to a handful of people I encountered one day to find some positives and see what they loved about fall. I asked, "Can you tell me of a favorite fall memory or tradition that you have?". Here are a few of the responses I received:
Lauren: My family has a cabin at Shaver Lake and we would go horseback riding by the lake and family walks when the leaves turned.
Kyle: We would get trash bags in the shape of pumpkins and fill them with leaves. When we were done we would dump and play in them!
Kendra: Picking apples and going home to make applesauce! Yum.
Judy: We started going to Big Sur as a family. One year my daugter brought a frozen turkey and frozen water bottles and we played Turkey Bowling! We play it every year!
Stephanie (not me): My favorite memories are simple--going out to pick out our pumpkins, corn stalks, and gourds!
Cool customer: We have a cabin in the Adirondaks and would go there when the leaves turn. It's small and cozy and perfect!
Well, thank you all! I am going to try to give Fall another look this year. Two things are already making me like the season a bit more...
