Fall is my favorite season of the year (okay, it's tied with Spring. They both have so much to offer). I love all the gorgeous colors, crisp weather, roasting marshmallows over a fire, and delicious recipes. Every year, I think about everything I want to do this season and then forget half of it. A Fall Bucket List is a great way to create your own autumn traditions!
This year, I decided to actually write down my Fall Bucket List because there is so much I want to do & I don't want to forget anything. My husband will be home for a visit only once this fall, so I'll try to cram as many of the activities I know he will enjoy doing with the boys during his visit and save the rest for when he's back at work. He'll be here for our favorite fall festival, so I'll make sure we pick out our pumpkins while we are there. This year, we might go on the hay ride to the corn maze too! I'll also cook some delicious recipes, like the Pork Roast with Apple Cider Gravy he loves (and I love because it's an easy crockpot recipe)!
