Autumn Bucket List
Blogtober Day 3
These are some of the things that I would like to do this fall! Fall is the perfect time of year to do some of my favorite things!
Go with friends, family, a loved on or by yourself and pick out the perfect pumpkin to decorate your house with! Go one step further and carve it! 🙂
This is something that I have actually already done this fall, but I had to put it on the list because it is just so much fun!
Bonfire and roast marshmallows
This is one of my favorite things to do in the fall, especially on nights that have a chill in the air. Grab a blanket and a few friends and have a bonfire. Grab your favorite hot drink and tell stories deep into the night!
Spooky or not, grab some flannel and a mug of something warm and enjoy the brisk air hitting your face on a hayride. I think this will always be one of my favorite fall activities.
Usually during this time of the year there are all kinds of fall festivals. You can usually find them by googling “fall festivals in my area”.
Make & eat caramel apples
I found these caramel turtle apple slices on Pinterest and definitely plan on making them this fall!
This is a whole new twist on caramel apples and they look delectable!
Bake and distribute fall cookies
More inspiration from Pinterest, but I would love to bake some sugar cookies and decorate them and then distribute to friends and family for a little encouragement!
Bake a pie
Fall is the season for pie! I absolutely adore baking, but pies are one thing that I haven’t mastered yet. I would love to bake an apple pie, a pecan pie or even a lemon meringue pie! Mmmm. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Fall is a beautiful time to go hiking. The weather (if cooperating is cool and delightful), the trees are all changing colors, and nature is so fun to see in the autumn time.
Burn candles and put up festive decor
I’ve recently been on a candle and book buying spree, which should come as no surprise if you have been following my blog for awhile. I can’t wait to burn all my fall scented candles and make my house and room smell like a dream!
Decorating is another way to get prepared for the fall. Most of the decoration that I put up in October will stay up until I transition them to Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving.
Drive through the country – roll the windows down – turn the music up
Long and windy country roads.
Wind whipping through your hair.
It’s fall y’all.
Rake leaves for a neighbor or the elderly
This is an act of kindness that I find makes for a good workout and helps out someone who is unable to rake their own leaves or just doesn’t have the time.
Enjoy a foggy early morning walk
Much like taking a hike, taking an early morning walk is a perfect time to enjoy the changing colors of fall time. I find that taking a morning walk before the rest of the world wakes up is invigorating and prepares me for the day ahead.
Take fall photos
The colors of this season are absolutely incredible, make sure you capture the memory and make it last!
Go thrift shopping for some sweaters or flannel
Preparation for the upcoming colder weather is a must. Switch out your summer clothes for your favorite fall sweaters. Give your closet a face lift and get rid of the clothes that you no longer wear and go shopping for some new items!
Watch some football
Or better yet, get a backyard game of football going! Grab your friends and family and have a competition!
Read some books!
Fall is one of my favorite times to cuddle up with a good book. It is even better if there is a thunderstorm and all the candles are lit.
