As fall rolls in, folks are preparing for cooler weather, pulling out their favorite sweaters, and enjoying the turning leaves. Fall is time for slowing down. It’s a great season to enjoy family time, explore new places, and simply enjoy the world around you before the quiet time of winter sets in.
But it’s all too easy to let modern life get in the way of enjoying this beautiful time of year. There is always laundry, dishes, and commitments that pull us away from doing what we really want to do. That’s why it’s so important to start a bucket list.
