Growing up in Southern California I didn’t get to experience the changing of the seasons. It wasn’t until I moved away to Texas, when I began to understand that as the seasons changed so did everything else (skincare routine, outfits, activities, and much more). This was so much fun! Now that I am based out of Nevada, I get to enjoy milder changing of the seasons… it’s kind of like the best of both worlds! Fall is brisk, with the changing of the leaves, but yet not extreme changes like frequent rain or cold temperatures.
I hope you all are soaking up the Fall vibes as much as I am.
I have grown to love seasonal activities and each year I make myself a seasonal Bucket List.
2018 FALL BUCKET LIST:
For The Home:
- First things first, get the house to smell like Fall.
- Simmer Orange, Cinnamon, and Apples to make the house smell good.
- Decorate the house.
- Roast Pumpkn Seeds
- Add a dash of Pumpkin Spice seasoning to each batch of coffee.
- Make Fall-Flavored breakfast cookies. See recipe HERE
- Take advantage of the seasonal veggies + fruit. Next grocery trip, load up on the squash, pumpkins, and more.
- Bake fresh bread. I often make desert breads because they ake the house smell so yummy and because my roomies prefer it.
- Comfort Food. I’m sure by the recipes I’ve been posting, many of you have already noticed that I’ve been a little comfort food obsessed. You are so right! I live off of crockpot dinners practically all Fall.
For The Family:
- Did someeone say Fall camping trip! The weather is so ideal for a good camping trip in the mountians.
- Bonfires just about every night! If you have a fireplace, that works too.
- Go to a pumpkin patch.
- Apple picking is a must!
- Fall festivals are such a fun family activity. There is something for every memeber of the fam: food, activities, prizes, shows, and animals.
- Farmers markets are always in full effect this time of the year! Grab your seasonal foods while you are here.
- Enjoy a picnic.
- Pumpkin painting and/or carving!!
- Put away the Summer clothes and bring out the sweaters. Maybe even do a little donating while you’re at it.
- Read a witchy novel.
- Keep a gratitude log
- Knit or crochet a cozy Fall piece
- Light a Fall scented candle and take a warm bath.
- When it rains: open the curtains, curl up with a good book, sip on a warm cup of tea, and listen to the rain drops.
I will continue to share my seasonal bucket lists with you, in hopes that you too will get as much joy out of it as I do. If you have a Fall buekt list, I’d LOVE to hear about it! Please share in the comments below or email me it! Happy Fall everyone!
