Wish list for fall

Fall wish list 2015 | RISING*SHINING

It's the first day of fall, hooray! It's still so hot here that we don't go outside much during the middle of the day (unless we can be in the shade) but the mornings and evenings have been pleasant and allllmost coolish.

More so that any summer before I felt that I accepted the heat; I endured it, sweated through it and kept reminding myself of all the outdoor time we'd have come Octoberish. Last summer I was pregnant with Cedric and uncomfortable through the extended summer months. It's been lovely not to have swollen ankles and an expanding belly this year.

I couldn't resist making a wish list of fall recipes and activities when I flipped my calendar to September and I'm so excited to start checking things off.

Recipes to make
Pear-cranberry crisp
Lentil soup and cornbread
Pumpkin brown butter cake
Pumpkin spice syrup for coffee
Apple cider donuts

Things to do 
Fall candles (just bought sweater weather and leaves)
Fall soaps and scents around the house (Mrs. Meyers orange clove is my favorite, but not out yet for the season)
Update our gallery wall
Family bike rides
Weekend getaway

Happy fall!
