My Autumn Fun Bucket List

I had a great time ticking things off of my Summer Fun Bucket List, and just about as much fun anticipating each item on the list! I’ve made another list for Autumn, which just so happens to be my favorite season (but seems to go by so fast!).

The amazing thing is that yesterday I had my first honey crisp apple of the season and a nice hot mug of vanilla chai, and yet at Rosy Mound the sun was shining and I was a little warm. I even walked along the beach with my jeans rolled up and my feet in the water.


Whenever I go to Rosy Mound it’s almost like a private oasis–I rarely bump into more than a few people every 20-30 minutes. The lake always seems endless, and it always makes me smile without necessarily understanding why. I get excited and feel like the world is so open and I can do anything, and yet I know fall will progress into winter and I worry about getting through. It’s like my frustrations about my professional life loom behind it all. But. Anyway. I guess that’s why I need to focus on little things to get me through, like my lovely little bucket lists.

Some of the things listed have been moved over from my Summer Fun Bucket List, but many of the things are new. What are some of your fall to-do’s?
