Autumn Bucket List

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." ~ George Eliot

I 💛fall too! Recently, I read a post on Beautiful Mess that included a printable autumn bucket list. I really like the idea of intentionally planning to fully experience those magical weeks when everything is vibrant and the air is crisp and fragrant. Here’s my autumn bucket list.

  • Walk with Piper in the woods 
  • Climb the tower at Holy Hill
  • Decorate with white pumpkins, gourds, and Mom's "Spooky Tree”
  • Burn fall-scented candles
  • Spend a weekend in Door County
  • Make butternut squash soup, chili, and wild rice soup
  • Take a walk in the morning fog
  • Get Macintosh apples from Wood's in Fish Creek
  • Enjoy a pumpkin spice latte
  • Go to the Delafield Fall Art Walk and Halloween festivities 
  • Pick out pumpkins and carve jack-o-lanterns
  • Listen to Halloween Party Radio on Pandora
  • Have a bon fire in the back yard and roast marshmallows
  • Switch from Chardonnays to nice bold Cabernets
  • Wear skirts and sweaters with cozy tights and boots
  • Take a drive to see the fall color
  • Take lots of photos
  • Drink hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick
  • Roast pumpkin seeds
  • Fall clean-up: prune shrubs and perennials, rake leaves
  • Go to October Ladies' Night Out in Delafield with the girls
  • Watch Packers games
  • Go to the Farmer's Market
  • Knit a throw for the living room
  • Watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”
