Fall is such a great time of year. As a lover of colors, I particularly appreciate the changing leaves with all their hues of red, orange, brown, and yellow. My childhood home had seven or eight trees in the yard surrounding it, and at least four of them would drop leaves every autumn. Raking certainly wasn’t my favorite activity, but I do have some fond memories of jumping in leaf piles and climbing into garbage bins to squish all the leaves down so we could fit more. I can practically smell that mulch-y scent that comes off the leaves. I also remember getting pricked and poked by leaf stems when my brothers and I would play in them. Childhood memories aside, there are so many great things about fall besides the beautiful leaves. DIY craft projects and recipes inspired by fall are a great way to get in the mood for the season!
