Who doesn’t love when their friends share favorite things? Here is my list of things I’m loving for Fall…

Things to do with loved ones:

  1. Hire a professional photographer to take photos of you with your friends or family. Don’t miss the beautiful backdrop of the Autumn colors.

  2. Go to a pumpkin farm. Eat corn on the cob. Drink apple cider. Sit on a hay bale. Breathe in the fresh air. If you are in Washington State, I highly recommend Bob’s Corn.

  3. Reach out to that person you love that you haven’t talked to for awhile. Tell them you care about them and ask how they’re doing. It only takes 7 seconds.

  4. Listen to the rain and take a moment to pause.

  5. Ask friends on social media what book has recently inspired or captivated them. Buy a copy and read it. Highlight important points and take notes on the front title page. If it’s an amazing book, reach out to the author and tell him/her what you loved about it.

  6. Go for a morning walk and ask a friend to join you. Savor the quiet moments spent together.

  7. Invite new friends over for a live football game. Have crockpot chili, guac, and chips. Bond over shared sports enthusiasm and commercial breaks.

  8. Go to Bath & Body Works or shop local (shout out to my parent’s business, Snohomish Candle Company) . Find a favorite autumn candle for a signature seasonal scent.

  9. Get a massage or schedule some type of self-care. Be kind and love the body God gave you.

  10. Grab a girlfriend and tune into the “Finding Something Real Podcast” or listen to the live recap on Instagram at 5PM PST Thursday nights starting September 19th. Ask me questions!
