Fall Bucket List

Take a deep breath early in the morning.

Do you smell it? Do you feel it?

Fall is coming!

Yes, that means it’s almost time for boots, sweaters, pumpkins, apple orchards and warm drinks from Starbucks that cost an arm and a leg.

Fall is magical. It’s the perfect time of year we can breathe in the crisp air, enjoy the changing leaves, put on our cozy sweaters and boots, pick up a pumpkin spice latte for a hay ride through a corn maze and go apple picking all in the same day.

n my mind, Fall only lasts 8 weeks: from the beginning of September(technically, the first day of fall is September 22nd this year) to the end of October.

Because let’s face it folks, as soon as the Halloween party is over, everyone starts thinking about Christmas. Sad? Yes, True? 

You bet.

Fall is without a doubt, my favorite season.

So every year, I have a fun fall bucket list of some of my favorite fall things. 


This year, I made a fall bucket list full of some of my favorite fall activities and fun things to keep us busy all season long.

I think we have about a week of Fall here in Texas, but it could stay around a little longer. It's been nice with temps in the low 90s. LOL
