10 Fall Activities You Swear You'll Do This Season But Probably Won't (Sorry)

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.
