I am big on intentionality and I think making a list helps me do that. I won’t beat myself up if I don’t do all of these things but I do think it will help me to squeeze the most out of the season. I am sad and feel sad sometimes, as I am sure you do, too. I can’t believe my kids are out of the nest-ish and that makes me sad. I am sad about Covid and what it means to life as we know it. I am sad about many other things I see on the news.
But, I think everyday should contain a tiny bit of happiness. This list might help me grab what I can and it might help you, too.
-Light a fall candle. I have been lighting my apple candles! I got a honeycrisp apple from Trader Joe’s and an apple from Bath and Body. In October I will do pumpkin scented!
-Use my solo stove on the patio with Tom or with friends, too.
-Go to a football game
-Watch a football game on the patio and possibly eat chili while doing so.
-Wear all the fall colors! Wear my fall hat that makes me look like a park ranger.
-Drink apple cider and maybe find an apple orchard.
-Drink a PSL! (Pumpkin Spice Latte)
-Make fun fall foods – dish of candy corn and peanuts is one!
-Go to an Oktoberfest
-Go to a fall festival
-Go leaf peeping – hopefully by boat and by car
-Make my apple cider sangria
-Create a new fall cocktail
-Spend time on my patio
-Decorate patio for fall
What am I forgetting?
Happy Fall – almost!

Oooh can’t wait to read yours! I know I’ve forgotten some things!
Such a great idea and you are right – we need to focus on some happy right now because there is plenty of sad all around us. I do love your cocktail recipes, can’t wait to see what you come up with this year!
Thank you! I take the happy where I can get it. I am going to be looking into lower calorie mixers but I just haven’t had the time yet.
So many fun ideas! Fall is my favorite time of the year, and I feel like my family has lots of fun fall traditions 🙂
Thank you! Yes! I kind of liked being virtual last year to enjoy the increased outdoor time. We used to have a lot, too. There were school fall festivals and lots of fun stuff!
And now I’m in the mood for fall! 🙂

Me too! Texas will not be ready for a long time, though! Lol!
SO agree. Our country and our leaders are all a HOT MESS. I love all your ideas! How about make a S’more on your patio? I plan to have fall Firepit parties in our backyard, make pizzas and s’mores. While watching football on our tv patio! I cant wait! I do not care for PSL but I am HERE for the pumpkin scones and muffins. EE gads what a terrible WW I am. See why I can never be a leader? HAHA
I know! It’s so sad! I do love s’mores but the ingredients are triggers for me! I will probably buy the stuff when I know it will get used by more people than just me!
I don’t think I would want to be a leader, either, bc I don’t want to follow anyone else’s rules. I like to do what works for me.
