Fall 2019 Bucket List

Fall 2019 Bucket List

Happy Fall y’all! Fall activities (or autumn as it is called in Ireland) aren’t a thing here. No hayrides, corn mazes, or fall festivals will be happening in my immediate future. That won’t stop me from getting in the spirit though. The leaves are changing color, the temperatures are dropping, and the fall scented Bath & Body Works candles are out. I have never made a seasonal bucket list, but I thought it might be fun to do this year. So, here are a few things I would like to do this fall!

Go to the pumpkin patch (I use this term loosely) in Phoenix Park

Make apple butter for the first time

Burn fall candles

Try to find an apple cider donut

Celebrate Thanksgiving

Bake pumpkin bread

Make a list of things I am thankful for

Try to find a pumpkin beer

Do a closet cleanout / buy 1 new sweater

Make chili

Send snail mail to a friend

Read a scary book (suggestions welcome!)

Make an autumn playlist

Try to find candy corn


You’ll see the word try there a few times because like I said, the Irish just do not get into fall at the level we Americans do. I am going to update my list as I cross these activities off. What are y’all most excited to do this season?
