Fall is by far my favorite season: I prefer cozy knit over cut-off shorts, and mulled cider over tea any day. Fall is the most magical time of the year, and with the first day of falls arrival last Wednesday, you know I had to share my fall bucket list.
To celebrate the season, I have put together my annual fall bucket list that will help you make the most of what the season has to offer. Grab your scarves, throw some apple cider on the stove with mulling spice and get ready to head off and leaf peep as you check items off the 2021 Fall Bucket List.
1. Take a scenic drive
One of my favorite things to do in the fall is go out for a scenic drive. I love looking at the changing colors throughout the state.
2. Visit a cider mill
As soon as temperatures drop you can find me at a cider mill. Sipping on a hot cider and enjoying a cider mill donut.
3. Pick apples
Ever since I was a toddler my mom and I would head out to an apple orchard and pick all the apples we desired. Picking apples has hands down become one of my favorite things to do in the fall.
4. Enjoy a fall themed drink
My personal favorite fall drinks are chai tea lattes (with oat milk), and hot mulled apple cider from a local cider mill.
5. Give your home a cozy makeover
Just like your wardrobe, your home needs to change with the seasons. Trade your summer linens for warm sheets, cozy throws and extra quilts. Incoporate more candles, add autumn soap scents to the bathroom and kitchen. Don’t forget to add a little bit of flair to your front porch to spread season cheer. I’ll be adding a fall themed doormat, stacking cinderella pumpkins, updating the wreath on my front door and adding seasons favorite colors like burnt oranges and mustard yellows.
6. Hit the water
I absolutely love kayaking or paddleboarding and checking out fall color and it’s something that is back on my fall bucket list this year.
7. Have a fall-inspired movie marathon
Call the Sanderson Sisters—it’s spooky season! Get in the spirit by playing your favorite spooky movies back to back. I’ll be playing Double, Double Toil and Trouble with the Olsen Twins and Hocus Pocus. Don’t forget to grab a bowl of popcorn, light your favorite fall candle (as long as it’s not the black flame candle!), and enjoy the bests of spooky season.
