Fall to do list

From Martha

Happy fall, my friends! John has been dreading today, because to him, fall simply means that winter is on the way (and he hates winter). I feel much more positively about fall than he does. Regardless, here's what we're hoping to pack into the next three months:

-- hang something seasonal on the front door
-- make one month's flower arrangement a chrysanthemum for the front step
-- complete at least one house project (can be anything, really!)
-- take a trip to a corn maze
-- make a delicious-sounding fall dish like homemade Twix bars or caramel pears
-- finally purchase the perfect pair of brown leather boots (John gave me the gift card for them last Christmas!!)
-- go on a weekend hiking + camping trip
-- make pumpkin chocolate chip muffins
-- catch the goat showmanship competition at the NC State Fair (yes, watching the goats and their child handlers is our very favorite activity at the fair)
-- finally take Martha up on all her pumpkin projects and do something crafty with a gourd
-- join in the sweet potato harvest at our church
-- drink hot apple cider (my favorite)

What's on your fall to do list?


  1. Fall to-do list: make 3 new recipes!
    stencil and paint a white pumpkin!
    oh...and though I don't have a gift card, I do need to get those perfect brown boots as well...mine are way to worn to wear

  2. If you find that perfect pair of boots, please do share! I've been on the lookout for the last two seasons and haven't quite met the perfect pair yet...
