Things we do in October

According to Tumblr October is all about colorful leaves beautifully falling on the nice paths in parks and forests, where glamorous girls go for walks wearing soft and cozy earthy-toned sweaters, probably holding paper cups full of pumpkin spiced lattes to warm their precious hands and souls. Simultaneously they are probably thinking about that wonderful apple and cinnamon cupcakes' recipe that they saw on YouTube this morning. They might even try it out while preparing for a cutest movie night with their girlfriends where they will also be doing face masks while vanilla candles will be burning in the background. I am yet to meet people who at least minimally resemble to lifestyle like that.
Meanwhile there so many things going on in October, almost too many to actually remember that autumn is also a season that we can enjoy and treasure.


I think October is the most beautiful month for letters, both writing and receiving, and then writing again. While everybody starts sinking into unbearable workload, deadlines and the realisation that new years goals whatever they might be, do not seem realistic at all anymore, it is more important than ever to share the love and appreciation we have for our loved ones. Whether it is runny nose, flu or seasonal worries, a handwritten dose of attention will brighten even the grumpiest day, while writing a letter is a therapy like no others. It is healthy to get it all out on paper, after all. Why not in October?

If you live anywhere like Scotland, October is probably your last chance to see bits of sunshine in the morning. It is your last chance to reset your inner clock and sleeping patterns, too! Whit nights getting longer and darker, the ability to wake up bright and early and get things done before your 3rd coffee a day will become a life savior, for sure.

Finally, October is the perfect time to start preparing for.. Christmas. I know Halloween isn't even here yet, but if you are one of those people extremely obsessed with Christmas you will know that it takes ages to prepare for Christmas, while Halloween preparations take, well, a day at most! Finding the right presents and having your choices set when sales and occasional offers appear will help you to keep your budget in order, while preparing party outfits and cookie recipes early enough probably result in you actually enjoying all the holiday buzz!

What do you do in October?
