Hello, Fall...I've Been Waiting for You

It's finally Fall! I absolutely love this time of year and want to embrace everything it has to offer. This year, I made birthday bucket list when I turned 27. I plan on knocking a few items off that list in the coming months, so I thought it would be fun to compile a list of other things I would also like to do this fall. Here is what I came up with:

Finish updating the curb appeal of our home
  • I've been brainstorming ideas of how to add curb appeal to our little farm house for a while now and am making progress! I still have some final touches to add this for fall, but I am already excited about how it's coming together. I'll be sure to post some pictures when I get it all finished!
Bake pumpkin bread
  • Fun fact about me - I love bread! It's one of my favorite foods. Since I have never baked any kind of bread before, I figure fall is the perfect time to give it a whirl!
Decorate our kitchen mantle with all things fall
  • There is a adorable mantle in our kitchen that has been sitting empty since I moved in. I just can't figure out how I want to decorate it long term, but figure I can make it look really cute for the fall season!
Complete a 10k
  • Running has always been my favorite form of exercise and to stay motivated, I like to have some kind of race scheduled that I can work towards. My next race is a 10k at the beginning of November. I have a lot of work to do before then!
Go to a pumpkin patch
  • Can you believe I have lived all of my 27 years without going to a pumpkin patch?! This year I am making it my mission to find a good one in the STL area to visit.
Knock five books off of my reading list
  • So many books to read, so little time! I hope to spend a lot of time on the front porch with a book in hand enjoying the beautiful weather.
