Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to pay tribute to the enchanting season that is upon us–the season of gatherings and goblins, cable knits and cardigans, savoring scents and simmering soups. I miss my Michigan home more than ever this time of year, but I know how to create what my heart desires. My mom has always been able to cobble together the most random leftovers to yield impressive feasts; I’ve managed to spin our summer’s-end sweltering temperatures into a festive fall feeling, laden with all the same delights of the north–minus the blessed chill of a late September walk beneath the canopy of scarlet maples.
(We have our leaves shipped to us every year).
One way we’ve really made Autumn come alive is our annual Fall Bucket List. As with our other bucket lists, we put a lot of time and thought into creating a list of little things we want to do–things that will make us happy, things that are easy to accomplish and things that we might forget to do if we didn’t put them on a list. We print our list 16 x 20, display it in a central area of our home and make checking it off an enthusiastic family affair. And we love sharing it with you.
With no further ado, the 2019 Fall Bucket List. Download and print your copy HERE.
Also, FRAMED! (Fall 2019 Edition) starts Monday, September 23rd! This will be the fifth FRAMED! course. This round focuses on capturing the joy and beauty of the autumn season, getting YOU in more photos, plus the composition and story-telling elements that are at the foundation of all my photography courses. I hope you’ll join us! Learn more here.
And a blast from the past with some of our favorite fall memories:
I’m so excited to get this season started!
