Today is my mom’s birthday! She and my dad were born with one day apart in the same year! Happy birthday, Mom!
I like to make a bucket list for each season and sometimes for each month. They are usually more like goals or things I want to do to enjoy the season or month to the fullest. It’s a way of being intentional. My lists used to involve lots of family activities but now they are mostly for me by myself, me and a friend, or my husband and I.
-Decorate for fall. Get mums for front porch and decorate back patio.
-Go to an apple orchard – there is one near my in-laws with apple jam and apple slushies. (This would involve the whole family)
-Make my fall sangria (It involves Fireball Whiskey!!)
Enjoy said sangria in my yard or on the boat.
-Have a bonfire in my backyard – maybe for my birthday with people over
-Have people over for chili maybe before walking to my high school’s football game
–Go to at least one out of the four high school football games. Try to invite some teachers.
-Do a boat ride where we marvel at the fall colors of the trees (We keep the boat out until end of October/early November before winterizing it.)
-Create a fall capsule wardrobe
-Go to my city’s flea market, food truck event on a Saturday or Sunday
-Go to a fall festival
-Make Apple and pumpkin recipes
-Take a Christmas card worthy family photo – excited because both boys’ braces off!
-Buy fall candles and soaps at Bath and Body
-decorate for Halloween when appropriate – right now have generic fall decor
-Go to restaurant on the river with a fire pit
-Take my dog to a dog friendly patio at a brewery – We have lots of these
-Buy and wear an apron for cooking – I think I will go to World Market to look.
Have I forgotten anything? What’s on your list?
