The Ultimate Fall Bucket List

It’s getting to be that time of year again…the time of year when the trees transform to red, orange, and gold and the flavor “pumpkin spice” is EVERYWHERE!

I am sad to see summer end, but I have to admit fall has always been my favorite season. It is a time of change and a time of new beginnings. So get ready to break out your boots, scarves, and comfy sweatshirts, it’s time to embrace fall!

Anyone who knows me, knows I am a list maker. It helps me get things done. So instead of sitting around sulking about how the brutal Wisconsin winter is coming, I am going to make the Ultimate Fall Checklist of things to do this season and do my best to check them all off!Drink a pumpkin spice latte (Yes, I am one of those people…sorry not sorry…)

  1. Pick apples at an apple orchard (and while you’re there have a caramel apple on a stick!)
