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.

Fall 2020 Bucket List
With the leaves changing colors in the upcoming weeks, it’s the perfect time to head to your favorite parks and watch them transform. Pack a charcuterie board and have a picnic!
The temperatures are perfect for longer hikes, it isn’t too hot or too cold. So take advantage of the beautiful autumn weather and spend time outside. The mountains look especially beautiful when the leaves are changing. Cute hiking outfit linked here.
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte
Instead of getting the ever so popular PSL in store, try brewing it at home. It’s pretty simple, and way healthier this way too! We use this to get ours tasting exactly like the coffeeshop version.
