It’s been on heck of an October guys! The end of the year is coming fast.
I love the Fall Season but I don’t like the cold. I know that probably sounds crazy since I’m a new Englander but it’s true. I hate it. I don’t like how dark and cold it gets at night which means snow is on its way to us also. So how you get through the cold? Well let me tell you …
Accepting the Cold Weather as it is
Acceptance is the second step to recovery. The first one was admitting it. Phew! This has been a free therapy session from me to you. No seriously, you have to accept that no matter what we’re going to be cold. The other thing that makes the Fall and cold weather easier is appreciating what’s around you. Living in the Northeast, we take fall foliage and snow for granted. We don’t really appreciate it because it’s all we’ve ever know. It’s like common sense. Weather change. Leaves change color. Gets chilly. Here comes the Snow.
I have a little cousin in Florida who admires everything about our season changes. When he visits during the fall or winter, he embraces it and jumps all in (literally!). When he was 5 years old, my mom decided to create an Autumn box. It’s not only to remind him of how much we care about him but to send him a little piece of the Fall from New England to Florida. We include everything from different color leaves, apples, & pumpkin spice pancakes to maple syrup and other things. We always think of new ideas of what to send. It has become a tradition for us to always send a piece of us to him. I wish we could send snow but you can imagine how soggy that box would be when it arrived.
What are your favorite fall traditions? I’m sure a lot of you love creating new traditions as much as I do! Whether it is here in New England or down in Florida, create and keep creating new memories for you and your family. It’s something they’ll never forget.
Thanks for sticking with me as always,
