We just celebrated the first day of fall (!!!), which means it’s time to whip out last year’s now dusty to-do list of cozy fall activities and start checking things off. You know exactly what I’m talking about. Every year you come up with a whole itinerary of things you swear you’ll do to make this the best season ever, and every year that list ends up sad, neglected, and completely untouched. I get it. There are so many fall activities to do it’s hard to get around to all of them — you’re lucky if you get around to just one. I can barely dress appropriately for fall; I really can’t schedule a trip to go apple picking.

In an ideal world, I can take most of fall off from work and just wear plaid shirts and brown boots, drink lattes, and rake leaves for fun. There will be a pie perpetually baking in the oven, and my house will smell like apple cinnamon and friendship. Heck, maybe if I’m feeling whimsical I’ll throw a cinnamon stick in my hair, or make a wreath out of multi-colored fall leaves, or become friends with a group of small birds. But alas, I am a real, actual person who has neither the time nor interest in doing any of that. What I will do, however, is list all of the fall activities I claim I'll finally get around to this year… maybe. After all, there’s nothing wrong with a little wishful thinking.
