Autumn Bucket List

It's October 1st and autumn IT IS.  It has only felt like fall here in the last week and now we are into October--the best month of the year!  All the best things of fall and pumpkins and candles and coziness.  September is the transition month from summer to fall, so some of fall bucket list is already done!  This is also a different kind of fall for us with a new baby arriving the week after Thanksgiving.  December 3 is the due date, but in my mind this is a Thanksgiving-late autumn baby, not a winter-Christmas baby.  More on that to come!

But here is the Fall Bucket List:


  • Celebrate my mom's 70th birthday with a family fall retreat.  DONE!  We went as a family with my mom and dad to a cabin down by Lake Cumberland. Had a beautiful weekend, listened to the rain, experienced Cumberland Falls and played a few games.
  • Decorate the house for fall!  I am thinking plenty of mums, the autumn wreaths, candles,  and potpourri. And pumpkins on the porch!
  • Have a fire 
  • Visit a pumpkin farm
  • Carve pumpkins 
  • Watch a few soccer games (both K's and at the University)
  • Host an autumn dinner for friends
  • A fall hike with the changing leaves 
This list seems do-able!  This fall is an intense time of also working on a "baby bucket list" as well as keeping up with a very full season of work.  

What's your autumn bucket list?
