Fall Bucket List 2020

Summer is officially over and, once again, my favorite season returns...AUTUMN! Warm days, chilly evenings, falling leaves, bonfires, and all things pumpkin spice! How nice! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ„

I've been thinking about some of the things that I would like to do this fall, and accomplish over the course of it, and, while I know that I won't get to all of them, at least this list will help me to stay focused on the season and enjoying it to the fullest. Won't you join me as I dream? ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

and night shall not cease" (Genesis 8:22).
