October 1, 2010
In honor of October 1st, I have put together a little list of all of my favorite things to do in October! I hope that you try some of them out too!
-Visit Apple Hill. Apple Hill is my favorite place to go this time of the year. It is so beautiful. i stuff my face with apple donuts and drink apple wine. High Hill Ranch has a fishing pond and rescue wolves. You can also play in the pumpkin patch and visit the fudge factory. Crafters gather to sell items. BBQ is in the air. I love the smell of it all. How crisp and clean it feels. It's the perfect escape form my city.
-Watch Hocus Pocus. I love this movie. I have loved this movie for as long as I can remember. I have so many memories of dressing up as a witch when I was a little girl. I used to pretend that I was a good witch and cast spells on my classmates. I realize how silly this may sounds, but I was an only child. I had a huge imagination.
-Take a few walks in the cemeteries. I have never been afraid of death. One of my favorite memories is when my parents took me to Switzerland. While they skied and played in the snow, I was in the cemetery making grave rubbings.I still love to do this, and I love photographing old headstones. To me, there is just something so romantic about them.
-Make my favorite cupcakes! Here is the recipe!
-Brew a huge batch of apple cider. My mom has been using this recipe for YEARS. My best memories include this amazing little drink. Mommy and I would walk down to our little pond and snuggle up, watching the horses and sipping our spiced cider. While I can't share everything with you, I will give you a few hints. Add tang, stir with a cinnamon stick, and make sure to use some all spice.
-Attend Six Flags Fright Fest! I get into my costume and drag my mom with me to the theme park. She usually makes me ride the roller coasters alone, but it is still a blast! By far, one of my favorite things about October.
-I like to take a trip to Clarksburg and do a little wine tasting. There are few things that I love MORE than wine. Clarksburg is a beautiful little town. The Sugar Mill offers a great selection of different wine makers. My friends Ashley and Jordan had a beautiful wedding there.
-Last but not least, my favorite favorite thing to do in October is visiting the corn mazes! Getting lost in rows and rows of corn with a few friends is so thrilling to me. Last year Liz and I brought a bottle of Jose. No shame.
October and November are my two favorite months, and I plan on sharing all my special moment with you guys. I hope you share too! Let's make new friends this holiday season. I have been blown away by the amazing, talented, and inspiring women I have met in the past few months. Thank you for sharing your stories, and your kind words.
