Happy first day of fall friends! James and I were just talking about how fall is the best season and we’re so excited to do all the festive things. The temperatures are crisp and brisk, it’s time to start prepping for the holidays, the changing leaves are bright and beautiful, and you just want to cuddle up in a cozy blanket and drink warm mulled apple cider. Sounds magical, right? With this year being strange and unorthodox, we compiled a fall 2020 bucket list to safely work through this year.
