If you got Mostly A’s: Go to an Apple Orchard! A classic fall activity for those who can’t get enough of that sunshine and cool air, plus there’s plenty of sweet treats to bring home. You may also want to check out a corn maze or two and pick a pumpkin while you’re at it. Best to hurry, though, as Wisconsin tends to keep autumn’s visits brief.
If you got Mostly B’s: Get Cozy! Fall is a time for blankets, bonfires and baking. You may be the type who likes a cup of tea on a misty, overcast day wrapped in a blanket while reading a book. I can relate, that sounds like my kind of day. Perhaps you can steal some apples from your Mostly A friend and bake a pie. Or cake, or cookies. Either way, you love this season and can’t help but smile when greeted with autumn activities.
If you got Mostly C’s: Shop Til You Drop! But not really, because that would be unhealthy. Shop a healthy amount, please. Shop responsibly. You’re always in tune with the fashions of the season and perhaps some boots or scarves or sweaters have been calling your name. Take a trip to the mall with some pals and revel in the leaf decorations that cover nearly everything. Maybe grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte for your Mostly B friend and a light-up pumpkin for your Mostly A friend.
