Happy first day of fall! Here in Texas, the weather isn’t what one would call “crisp” yet, but I have this hope that East Texas fall will be closer to Arkansas fall than Houston fall. Like, I’m hoping some leaves will change and it won’t be humid and 85 in November. And I hope I get a chance to wear my flannel shirt while the bump still fits inside.
A deep desire of mine is to make the most of every moment in every season of the year and season of life. Don’t we all want that?
One way I make this more manageable is by writing down my hopes and “to-do’s” – a bucket list if you will. I’m ticking items off my 30 by 30 bucket list, and it’s been really fun.
When I finish an item on the list below, I’ll color in the leaf beside that item. I encourage you to make your own list as a way to savor the season. Here’s to a fall 2017 marked by joy and purpose!
