Fall is my second favourite season of the year (summer is #1 obviously). It's a time of change and fresh starts. From the start of a new school year to the changing colours of the leaves fall is one of the most bitter sweet seasons of all.
The beautiful colours of the leaves make for stunning Insta's and the flavours at every coffee shop are pumpkin spice everything (yes, please). It may seem as though there is not much to do in fall, but there is actually quite a bit you can do in Ottawa!
