::: the fall list

after admitting in yesterdays post that i was a bit slow hopping on the "fall wagon", i came across this fabulous list from Sarah at Pink of Perfection. it totally inspired me to keep the autumnal theme going for one more day. in doing so, i decided to compile a list of my own. and here it is:

30 Quintessential Fall Activities:

1. eating fresh donuts and cold cider from apple charlies.
