I’m so glad I live in a world where there are October’s.
The Fall breeze, autumn leaves, pumpkin spice and everything nice, and most important of all; sweater weather.
The tree’s start to show us how beautiful it is to let things go.
It’s a time for us to look back on summer, and all of it’s sunny days, beach days, memories that were made, and to get ready to let go, and grow into the new year that’s coming.
The sunsets make us wish that the pink & purple painted skies would last and linger just a little bit longer.
And while the weather may be getting cooler, don’t let that stop you from going out and about!
Fall is the perfect time to cozy up next to a fireplace with a good book, to throw on your cuddle-dud’s and a hat and scarf and hike around Mother Nature’s beauty, and to take a break from being “so busy” from all of summer’s activities, weddings, graduation parties, and to take some time to slooow down. To catch up and grab a pumpkin spice latte with a friend or family member.
We live in a world where we are always “so busy.” Filling up our schedule’s and calendars with 101 events, and even though we don’t mean to, we lose track of time, months pass by, and you haven’t talked to or seen your friends and family in months, maybe years.
All it takes is just a simple phone call, a “hey how are you?” letter, and a monthly or yearly visit to your grandparents, your parents, and friends and relatives that you are close too.
Fall is the perfect time of all to start reconnecting and catching up.
And the perfect fall activity to catch up, reconnect, hang out, and enjoy the sweater weather is by rounding up your friends/family and heading to the pumpkin patch/ orchard!
Which is exactly what my friends and I did!
Located near Saint Cloud, Minnesota, through the scenic collegeville hills of Saint John’s/ Saint Ben’s University, is a fall hidden gem called Collegeville Orchards.
15517 Fruit Farm Road
St. Joseph, MN 56374
Showcasing the areas most beautiful fall colors, a vintage charm, and some of Minnesota’s favorite locally grown apples, pumpkins, and other homemade goods.
Walk around and pick out your favorite pumpkin, grab a juicy apple from a tree, walk through the fall painted forests, you’ll sure be as busy as a bee!
The end of October is on it’s way, but there’s still time to stop and get a pumpkin today!
