The Complete Family Fall Bucket List

I know it’s still technically August, but…it’s almost fall!

I love the change of seasons, but fall would probably be my favorite season if not a close second to summer. There’s something about how fall brings out the best of all of your senses that gets me every time. Pumpkin bars (yes, I’ve already made 2 batches and yes, it’s still August), homey spice candles and the smell of freshly fallen leaves, cool air and soft snuggly blankets, gorgeous color shows in the treetops, and the soft crinkling of leaves when you go on walks. I. love. it. All of it! To make the most out of the season, I created this handy fall bucket list for my family and I to work on. Feel free to change, add, or edit ideas to suit your personal style and location! I’d love to hear what ideas you tried, and what the outcome was. Heck, I’d love to hear if you have more ideas I forgot to add! I’m a fall-aholic so send me all your best ideas.  I’ll be sure to update as well as my family and I tackle as many as we can!
