50 Essential Fall Activities


Happy (finally) fall! In our next of the woods, the weather is finally starting to feel like the season it says on the calendar. 

While I am sad to see summer go, I am not at all sad to say goodbye to that humidity. I swear, as I get older, I get less and less a fan of the heat. Bring on sweater weather.

Take advantage of changing colours, cool crisp air, festive harvest and all of other fall goodness with these 50 essential fall activities, including some of my family's favourites.
