A Bucket List For Autumn

This time of year usually finds me in a panic as I try to squeeze in just one last visit to the beach, one more visit to our favorite ice cream shop & one last camping trip before the air turns cold.  Summer always seems to slip by me so quickly that when September rolls around, I am taken by surprise.  Knowing that it will be many months before it is warm enough to swim in the lake again is always a hard fact for me to swallow.

So in an effort to stop and enjoy the season we are in right now, I’ve compiled a list of all the things that I LOVE about autumn and look forward to in the coming weeks.
