I love Autumn. I love the way the leaves on the trees slowly shrivel and steadily fade from green to yellow to red. I love layering and getting to wear jumpers and boots. I love going for walks in the frosty air and the sound of leaves crunching underneath me. I’ve never understood the appeal of jumping in piles of leaves though – there could be anything lurking under there!!!! Autumn is the season of golds, browns, and burnt oranges. Autumn is caramel apples, trick-or-treating and the smell of bonfires on a crisp clear night. Autumn is for watching your favourite tv shows and pretending you like Pumpkin Spiced Lattes because it’s boring to just order your regular americano!
Way back on August 31st 2013, I made a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days. 389 days later, I have successfully managed to do a whopping 10 things on that list. Time to up my game! I was browsing the internet yesterday, aimlessly as you do, and came across quite a few blogs and vlogs about Autumn or Fall Bucket Lists. Can you see where this is going?!
Autumn officially started yesterday and lasts until the first day of winter (obvs!) which is December 21st. That means I have a good 12 weeks in order to really step up my game and tick off a few of my goals. So with the help of my little brothers, I have come up with my Autumn Bucket List.
– Carve a pumpkin
– Dress up for Halloween (#56)
– Make apple cider
– Visit the Nightmare Realm in Cork
– Start running again! (in preparation for #12 & #13)
– Toast marshmallows (#28)
– Go for a long walk and collect conkers & pinecones with my brothers
– Read two Jane Austen Novels (#39)
– Go to a panto 🙂
– Buy coffee for a stranger (#59)
– Bake banana bread
– Go vegan for 30 days (#5)
– Make a Youtube video (#11)
– Create an Autumnal inspired craft
As you can see it includes some of my 101 in 1001 days goals, but also a few fun Autumn favourites too! What’s on your Autumn/Fall Bucket List?
