October Happenings!

I absolutely love Fall and especially the month of October. Despite the chill in the air, it is usually still warm enough to enjoy outdoor activities.

Inspired by the to-do lists I’ve seen pop up on Pinterest, as well as this awesome post HERE, I’ve crafted my own bucket list for this “wonderFALL” season!

2012 Fall To-Do List

  • Dress up the front porch with cheerful, bright mums!  DONE!
  • Decorate the house for Halloween.  DONE!
  • Visit the pumpkin patch with James.
  • Savor the changing leaves.  DONE!
  • Make pumpkin bread and cookies.  DONE!
  • Make homemade chili with my Mom.  DONE!
  • Enjoy sitting on the patio while it is still warm.
  • Design or find a fun maternity Halloween costume.  DONE!
  • Bake a pie with my Grandma.
  • Continue our Friends Thanksgiving tradition.  DONE!
  • Be grateful, everyday.  WORK IN PROGRESS!

It’s already starting to look like Halloween around here! Last year, a good chunk of our house was under renovation so I opted not to pull out any decorations.

We have lots of reasons to celebrate this month: our 3rd wedding anniversary, J’s 30th birthday, and an upcoming whirlwind trip to the beach!

    A WonderFALL list of things to do! I love your simple things . . . enjoying the colors of the leaves . . . whether it’s just in the neighborhood or taking a drive. Your frontyard and backyard landscapes are beautiful. I turn my head every time I drive by.
    I can’t wait to get out my Halloween . . . too!
    Love,
    Mom
