Fall Bucket List//2017


Well summer is officially over, and as the nights (and days) get chillier, I’m getting excited for the next season. Fall has an awesome line-up of holidays and traditions. This year more than ever I’m so excited to continue those traditions with our little family. Sunday will actually be able to participate in the holidays, even if she doesn’t understand why we’re doing things we are. It’s also so exciting to envision our first Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas in our own little home. I had fun making a summer bucket list a few months ago, I figured I’d make one for fall. Not everything got done on our summer list, but I liked that it pushed me to try and do things we might not otherwise have thought to do and it gave me ideas of things I could do with Sunday to make ordinary days a little more fun. Anyways, here’s my seasonal list- I can’t wait for all things holiday in the next three months!
