oh, autumn : bucket list

Try as I might, I can’t contain my excitement for autumn and the subsequent holiday season. Everything about this time of year just makes me so giddy inside. I will continue to mourn LA’s lack of fall weather and foliage (though I am feeling a “chill” in the air), but that will not stop me from celebrating the season in full force. We also just booked a repeat visit to Portland for our anniversary (!!!), so I’m crossing my fingers we’ll get some good “autumn vibes” in during that trip. If you have any must visit coffee shops, restaurants, vintage stores, etc., holler at yo girl. I can’t wait to go back!

Of course I want to get out and about and do all the fall activities. But I also want to enjoy the coziness of this season at home – spending a lot more time in the kitchen, on neighborhood walks, and reading magical books on the couch by candlelight.
