Fall Bucket List 2017
I'm a summer kind of girl but now that we're in October I can't avoid the fact that Fall is back upon us. Just because I can't get enough sun, palm trees, pools, and long summer walks doesn't mean I don't know how to enjoy the colder seasons (even if I'm complaining about how cold I am every two seconds).
We all have some sort of mental bucket list of places to visit, things we want to do, and goals to achieve but I'll come back to the lifelong bucket list in another post. Not wanting to get caught in a flurry of day-to-die activities, here's my Fall Bucket List 2017:
GO PUMPKIN PICKING
I've never done this before but now that Achilles is 18 months I know he'll love running free, rolling around all the colorful leaves and getting to pick his favorite pumpkin.
Doesn't get much more whimsical then being able to dress up our newborn and toddler in little costumes and watching, for the first time, the excitement on Achilles face when saying "Trick or Treat" fills his bag with chocolate and candies. And seeing his reaction to all the costumes and spooky decoration should be fun.
DO A RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS TOWARDS A STRANGER
This one I'm going to incorporate as a part of my life. Spread more love, more compassion, just help spread more positivity into this sometimes cruel world. Actions speak louder than words and this is a perfect situation where showing the kids is better than telling them.
CLOSET CLEANSE AND TREAT MYSELF TO A FEW NEW PIECES
Fall is always fun fashion wise. We get to pull out our boots, comfy sweaters and leggings and play around with layers. Plus, nothing like getting some new pieces to help out with the "Goodbye Summer blues".
GET MY LICENSE
You read that right. I still don't have my license but Lady Gaga didn't get hers until she was 30 years old so no shame in my game.
TAKE A CHRISTMAS CARD FAMILY PHOTO
Say cheese!! Neither of us have ever sent out a Christmas card family photo so this is another first for the both of us.
FIND MY PERFECT FALL CANDLE
In the Fall I love candle scents that that make you feel warm and cozy while you cuddle up and enjoy a good movie and a big cup of hot cocoa.
Any season is good for a massage but being that we haven't enjoyed a good massage since last winter, it's safe to say we are long over due on some romantic pampering.
We need to fit at least one of these into each season to just enjoy ourselves with no cute little hands or whines craving our attention. It's so nice (and necessary) to be able to let loose even if it is just one night, to enjoy yourselves like those days when all that mattered were you two.
