Fall has officially begun just a few days ago and already many people are in the autumn mood. One could argue that the first sign of fall is when Pumpkin Spice Lattes come out (calling all basic bitches!!). I personally think that it has more to do with the first real heavy rain of the season which we had here in Portland today. This morning as I put Eevee out to go potty; it was pouring and the percussion of the rain was so peaceful. I made myself a big cup of coffee and cuddled into my fluffy red robe. Since last year we really weren’t permitted to do much and most things were closed or canceled due to COVID, I decided to make a true Fall Bucket List full of things I want to do this year (and things most people will want to do again).
Have a Pumpkin Spice Latte
Drink seasonal beverages
Jump in a pile of leaves
Decorate home with fall decor (see the post from last year)
Go to Pumpkin Patch
Plan/Buy/Make Halloween Costume
Change to Fall Wardrobe
Bake some seasonal goodies
Hand out candy/trick or treat
Go on a hayride
Take a seasonal family photo
Watch Football/fall sports
Enjoy a bonfire
Watch Halloween movies
Go for a scenic drive
Paint or carve pumpkins
Create a fall-inspired or spooky playlist
Going for a bike ride
Have a picnic
Go boating or canoeing with a loved one
Soak in a bath using fall scents
I hope you liked this list of ideas for this fall and Halloween time, it should be fun fitting in as many things as possible in the next few months. I’m most excited to decorate more and put my outdoor decor out, add a hygge vibe inside with some seasonal light features and switch over my wardrobe to fall and winter pieces. Also, my favorite thing to do with friends is having an autumn/Halloween movie night– so maybe we can plan that again!
I am considering following up on a post about Fall Date Night ideas again this year- what do you think of that? Is there another fall-related post you’d like to see me put together? How many of these have you started on so far? When do you begin decorating for autumn: Sept 1 or Oct 1?
