Fall Traditions

17 Oct

Today’s Blogtober Fest topic, was to share Fall Traditions….

At first, I thought, well I don’t really do anything that is  a  so called “tradition”, but the more I thought about it, there are things my husband and I did last year, that we plan to continue doing so I guess we do have our own traditions!

1. Friendsgiving- I had a coworker once tell me that she was having dinner with all of her friends, just to celebrate all the things they are thankful for, etc… I can’t remember all the details, but I remember thinking, what a splendid idea? I’m going to get together a group of my friends and do the same!!!!

2. Fall Cleaning??- It’s simple. Do some spring cleaning in the fall. I personally like to really take a serious look in my closet, and see if I truly need everything that I have, or is there something I can give away and donate to those in need! This is something I do frequently throughout the year, especially in fall though!

3.  Charity Walks! WHoo hoo!- Although they are often done many times throughout the year, it wasn’t until last Fall I truly was inspired to really get involved! Last year, I walked in the Susan G. Komen Race for the first time in honor of my coworker, Paula, and it was amazing! This year, I will be volunteering at the race, but I also have decided to take on a walk to raise money for the Arkansas Aids Foundation! This is such an amazing organization where money actually goes to to physician care, lab work, and life sustaining medications for people living with HIV/AIDS who are not currently eligible for other assistance. I’m asking people to give me at least a dollar so I can help raise money for an organization that is slightly overlooked sometimes!

So my Fall traditions consists of cleaning, friends, and giving back in more ways than one. I love being involved and making a difference in the lives of others. I also love spending time with those I love.

What Fall Traditions do you have? Any similar to mine?  I’d love to  know! Please share!!

Until Next Time, Much Love,

Mrs. Spj 🙂

    You may not think of them as “traditions” but they are wonderful none the less!

    I love the idea of Friendsgiving! I may have to “steal” it. 🙂 Also, it’s so great that you’re bringing awareness to this fundraising through your blog. I didn’t know about this organization in our state.
