Fall Bucket List

I started a Summer Bucket List for the first time this year and I only did so-so at it. For fall, I learned that you have to plan everything out in advance or you won’t make it a priority so that is exactly what I am going to do for fall. In Michigan fall is so much fun with activities like Michigan football, apple orchards, cider mills, fall colors and the changing seasons. I can’t wait to get moving on these activities and enjoy this season as much as we can!

  1. You’re definitely going to have a fun and busy fall season. We’re so lucky to have such a beautiful autumn in Michigan. The only thing I would add is a scenic driving color tour along the Lake Michigan shoreline. (Oh and go Green & White…lol)!

  2. Keep me in mind for your book club, I know a couple girls who LOVE to read!

  3. Wow! That’s a really good list. I’ll definitely be doing a few things from it as well.
