"Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile." -William Cullen Bryant

I have always thought that there is something beautiful about fall. The weather is changing and getting cooler. The sun is not quite as hot and the breeze a little lighter. You can wear cute sweaters and longer-sleeves shirts without feeling like you are about to melt into a puddle at any moment. The leaves started changing and colors seem to come alive. The world seems to get a new life to it. With the heat of summer disappearing, everything seems to change.

But this fall has come around again and I have found myself in the same problem that I have been faced with before: what am I going to do? I love this weather and this time of the year in general but I can't seem to find anything to do. There are things I have always wanted to do but have never gotten the chance to do or just haven't done in years because let's face it doing things alone or with just your parents isn't quite as much fun. But now I'm engaged to be married, I'm young, I'm happy, so maybe I'll get to do some of the fall activities off my list.

Go for a bike ride.
Hike (even if it's just at Burr Oaks)
Attempt to make a pie (preferrably apple)
Go on a weekend or day trip to a little historic, old town and just relax
Take more pictures
Pick apples
Plant mums and other fall flowers
Relearn how to knit and actually finish something
Learn how to really cook - find some new recipes to try
Finish our FL vacation scrapbook
Sit outside and just read with no other distractions

That's a good healthy list of things to start with of this fall. I suppose instead of sitting here dreaming of doing those things, maybe I should start. Here's to an adventrous fall...
