Fall Bucket List

Saturday, October 5, 2019


Some of my earliest memories of fall are waking up early when it was still dark outside and coming out of my bedroom to see Martha Stewart's holiday decorating show playing...I’ve always loved seasonal celebrations and fall is no exception. Every year, I make a bucket list of sorts. A list of mostly small—but quietly joyous—items.


  • Decorate for fall
  • Clean out the closet
  • Pack away summer clothes
  • Unpack sweaters and scarves
  • Amass a small collection of fall candles
  • Buy honeycrisp apples
  • Start eating oatmeal again
  • Bake a savory pie (I'm looking at you, Jamie Oliver's leek and chicken pie)
  • Hit up Trader Joe's for all the autumn feast food
  • Have a popcorn + movie night
  • Hang an autumnal wreath on the front door
  • Reread Harry Potter 
  • Make pumpkin spiced muffins
  • Burn a new candle
  • Make chili
  • Bake homemade bread
  • Roast pumpkin seeds
  • Put together a puzzle
  • Paint pumpkins
  • Tidy my desk and stock up on stamps + cards
  • Bake and give pumpkin loaves to neighbors
  • Watch You’ve Got Mail
  • Watch an Agatha Christie series
  • Make mulled wine
  • Go for walks
