Things to Look Forward to in October

It’s October! Can you believe how quickly time is going by? I love the end of the year because I personally like cold weather since I get to break out all my sweaters among other things. With that in mind, here are some things to look forward to in the month of October! 

  1. Pumpkin patches and hayrides 

Get ready for those pumpkin patch pictures!!! 

  2. Pumpkin Related Foods

Pumpkin pies and pumpkin spice lattes, enough said. Oh, and if you love pumpkin seeds like my old roommate Elisabeth, you’d be looking forward to this month too. 


Inktober is this really cool event where artists all over the world take on a challenge to create a work with ink everyday for the entire month of October. Everyday there is a different theme and artists make a drawing with ink that has to do with the theme. It is amazing to see what artists come up with and according to my roommate, around 200,000 artists worldwide take part in this amazing challenge! If you’re interested, check out the Instagram and Twitter hashtag #inktober! (Also, shoutout to my roommate Sandy for letting me use her Inktober drawings for this article! If you like her work, you can check out more of her drawings @artventure.time on Instagram!) 

       4.Sweater Weather!!! 

As I mentioned before, I love layering up. So with the year coming to an end, that means the weather gets colder. Now I finally get to wear my sweaters again and they are so  comfortable and cute! I just can’t get enough of them! 

       5. Halloween 

I know we aren’t kids anymore, but that shouldn’t stop us from dressing up on Halloween!  It is still super fun–even if you’re not trick or treating!

Hope you all have a wonderful October and enjoy all these things!
