I love living in the Midwest! We are able to enjoy all the different seasons and with each season upon us, it’s like something new you get to look forward to. The fall season….ahhhhhh! Cool, crisp air and the trees coming alive with vivid colors. This season seems way too short, you have to try to fit in all the traditions of the season in just a few short weeks.
You have to enjoy these activities every time fall rolls around:
Cider Mills – you can’t go through fall in the Midwest without visiting your local cider mill. Cider, donuts, pumpkin patches, wagon rides – the smell alone is intoxicating!
Corn Mazes – try not to get lost! Grab a bunch of people and spend a Saturday running through a corn maze, you get to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and you’re being active – double bonus!
Football Games & Tailgates – that’s right, fall = football season. The amount of energy surrounding these games is unreal. The sound of the band, the football teams running on the field, the smell of tailgate food and the excitement of all the fans – you just don’t want to miss out!
Bonfires – need I say more?!
Little Things – it’s just fun to simply embrace the spirit of the season. By that I mean wearing your cozy sweaters, buying candles that smell like cinnamon and cooking chili, stew or any other of your favorite fall meals.
Life is full of your good days and your not-so-good days, but enjoying simple things such as fall traditions makes life so much more enjoyable! You have something to look forward to and especially since they don’t happen every day or every week – it’s makes life that much more Sweet!

Make it a great day.
