Happy First Day of Fall!
It still feels a lot like summer here, and I'm okay with that for now. We have spotted some fallen and changing leaves, so we know it is coming.
The end of Fair Week (which I still have to tell you all about) and our wedding anniversary is always an indicator that Fall is here. Fall is probably my favorite season but, I don't really like to have a favorite season. I find some joy in every season we're in.
Thanks to my wonderful husband, I have some beautiful Fall-like flowers in my kitchen right now. We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary on Monday, and so he surprised me with a big beautiful bouquet of flowers when he got home from work. Then, we went out to dinner at a fancy restaurant and ended the evening at Barnes and Noble.
While at Barnes and Noble, my husband and I bought a book for ourselves. It's called "The Love Dare". Basically, we read a chapter every night and each chapter ends with a dare. The dare can be something like write down three things that you love about your partner and share it with them.
So far we have completed a couple dares and it's been so much fun, and also a great way to end our days, focusing on one another. I am a firm believer that after you're married you're never done dating each other and you're never done working on making your relationship better.
Nick and I have so much fun together, we are always on the same page and I am so in love with him. He's my safe place. Anniversaries have a way of making us feel like we're on our honeymoon, again. I am so grateful that we got to have a night out to celebrate. It was a lot of fun!
This Fall, I want to do a lot of fun things together as a family. In order to get the most out of this season, I've made a Fall Bucket List.
Our Fall Bucket List:
- Visit a Pumpkin Patch
- Host a Bonfire or Dinner Party
- Visit Furhmans for Apple Cider
- Carve Pumpkins with Family
- Go to Zoo Boo with Piper
- Go for some Autumn Walks
- Go on a Camping Trip
- Participate in a Craft Show
- Overnight Fall Getaway with Nick
- Bake Cookies or Pies with Piper
These are just a few of the things I want to make sure we do before winter comes. Who else is making a Fall Bucket List?
