I’m gearing up to tackle my calendar planning for the remainder of the year, or at least the next month. My days are spinning, twirling, whirling by so fast right now that I can’t even seem to plan anything fast enough before the next month passes. This year is a blur, but a blessed blur at that. So, I decided to skip the usual Friday Favorites to post some other favorites about fall that I hope to be able to do.
I got to thinking to myself, “Self, what do you want to do this fall before it escapes you?” Enter in my fall bucket list post of things that I want to do pre-Christmas season taking over my mind and heart.
I got to thinking about my trip to Portland last year and the fun fall themed things we did there, as well as the many fall things I've done in years past... In the end I think this is a pretty great list of ideas!
