For the first time ever, I went pumpkin picking last week.
I've always been an avid follower of traditions and festivities, so I always carve a pumpkin, even at 23... But i'd never picked my own pumpkin, always just bought one from a shop. I don't know if it's a relatively new thing, but I can never remember pumpkin picking farms being around when I was a kid, not near me anyway. But, it was so fun! The farm was huge and there were several fields full of pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. We spent nearly two hours looking for the perfect pumpkins! (I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I had an image in mind of what I wanted).
There was something about it that was so enjoyable and made me feel so autumnal and cosy. I know i'm going to get even more satisfaction from carving my pumpkins because I picked them myself. And this is going to be something we do every year. I guess i'm just a big kid at heart...

What's your favourite thing to do in autumn?
