Each year when I walk outside on the first cool morning of September, I get reinvigorated by the changing seasons and excited for fall all over again after a long, hot summer. Looking back, my fall fun list tradition has been the most regular of all of the seasonal lists. I think my lack of excitement about summer weather combined with these wonderfully crisp early mornings are the main reasons.
While the weather won’t stay cool until late October here, that first tease makes me want to light a candle, wrap myself in a sweater, and sip on a mug of Chai tea in the crisp air. It is the perfect reminder of all of the fun to come as the temperatures dip just to that perfect chill and the leaves begin to change from green to fiery red, orange, and yellow before they fall to leave bare branches for the winter. Autumn, the in-between season, vanishes so quickly. To make the most of it, I have continued my annual tradition and created a new fall fun list for the season. If you want to make one, here is a blank printable version to fill out and keep on your fridge or in your planner. I can’t wait to get started!
