Happy Fall!

Hello, and happy Fall!

Several years ago I decided to come up with a list of all the things that I wanted to do before summer ended. While I didn’t complete every single thing on the list, I noticed that it pushed me to do more than I might have normally. I also enjoyed being more attuned to the things that I was doing. Rather than letting summer blur by, I was more aware of the experiences I had because I was actively keeping my list in mind.

This fall season I’ve decided to do the same concept and I thought that maybe you would like to do it with me! As I finish each thing on the list I’ll be writing down the date of when it was completed. I’m also challenging myself to take photographs, and write down memories from each event, with the plan that someday I’ll compile it into a few pages for a memory book.

Here is a list of the things I’ll be aiming to do this season:

  • Drink Apple Cider
  • Make pumpkin pie from scratch
  • Enjoy hot chocolate under the stars
  • Curl up under a blanket with a good book on a rainy day
  • Go to a football game
  • Watch Halloween movies
  • Carve a Jack-o-lantern
  • Make/eat chili
  • Movie marathon
  • Tell ghost stories
  • Spot a scarecrow
  • Have a picnic
  • Spend time baking to share special treats with others
  • Make a fall wreath
  • Bob for apples
  • Roast marshmallows over a campfire
  • Knit/crochet
  • Press leaves
  • Go camping
  • Go to a cider mill
  • Eat a caramel apple
  • Roast pumpkin seeds
  • Try a new pumpkin recipe
  • Go on a hayride
  • Do a puzzle
  • Drink coffee on a walk
  • Geocache
  • Go to a farmers market
  • Go through a corn or hay maze
  • Enjoy a crisp morning

I compiled this list from a few others I found online, and while some of the things on here are staples for me, like drinking apple cider and eating chili, some of the things on the list I haven’t done in a long time, if ever. I’ve never been to a hay or corn maze and I’m not sure I’ll find one near where I live, but I thought why not put it on the list and try? I’m looking forward to seeing what adventures await me this fall season and I’m looking forward to the memories that will be made!
