Fall To-Do List

October 08, 2013

A few days ago it decided to rain - storm, actually. It hasn't rained nearly a drop all summer and so the sound of rain beating down on the windows and hearing the distant sounds of thunder was kind of off kilter as I woke up. I took one step outside and knew with exact certainty that fall was here. It was so cold and crisp and the world was gray. Admittedly, it was so so strange at first, but now that it's been a few days I guess I'm finally starting to wrap my head around it. 

October is here and so is fall. Everything about my life right now, in this moment, feels transitional lately. I'm going through a transition as a person in so many ways and it feels so unique and rare to have it match up with the season. I've been evaluating a lot of things about my life and making a lot of lists (that I'm sure will be eventually shared here). I want to be someone who is always doing and I need to remember to always inject those enjoyable little morsels of things I love back into my everyday. So with this change of season, I welcome a change in life. Here are some of my fall to-do's (in no particular order).

  1. Go to a pumpkin patch (and decorate pumpkins with friends) (done)
  2. Pumpkin carving  (done)
  3. See if there is an apple orchard near and if so, go apple picking
  4. Bake an apple pie from picked apples
  5. Rock berry lipstick and break out the winter wardrobe (done)
  6. Drink a PSL (pumpkin spice latte) at every appropriate and given opportunity
  7. Go to a Haunted House
  8. Volunteer at childeren's Halloween carnival
  9. Send Jack a Halloween themed package in the mail
  10. Have a bonfire 
What's on your fall to-do list?

  1. I love Autumn, it's my favorite season. <3 I prefer a gray, stormy day over a sunny one. I know, I'm definitely the minority. :P I love your list! Every year, Jen and I get a Pumpkin Spice frappuccino each - so good. I've never visited a pumpkin patch, and I'm not sure if we'll be able to do so this year - but if not, there is always next year. :D

    I normally don't link to my own blog in a comment, but I wrote a list of seasonal goals, and since you asked, here they are! http://lariatsandlavender.blogspot.com/2013/09/welcoming-autumn-seasonal-goals_22.html

  2. This is such a wonderful list. Fall is definitely my favorite season, and I may or may not have been wearing layers over the past few weeks, even though it gets up to 80 degrees every day. ;)

    I found your blog through the AR Women's blogger website, and we're from the same region! I would love for you to check out my blog sometime!

    Have a wonderful week!

  3. Fall is my favourite !!! I love apple picking and craving pumpkins.


I value each and every comment. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to leave one!
