Already some weeks ago, the weather started to get rainier and colder, pumpkins started to appear in the stores, I seem to reach out to my blanket more and more, and sleeveless tops have been covered with chunky jumpers. It seems like Autumn is very much here, and even though letting go of summer is hard, I am quite excited for what this new season will bring – if it ever stops raining!
A few months ago (seems like yesterday!) I made a summer bucketlist, listing things that I wanted to do for the summer to create happy memories and basically just enjoy the season as much as possible, go outside of my comfort zone and just change my routine a bit. I liked this experiment and I also wanted to do it for Autumn!
How did the summer go?
Well, the point of it was never to tick off everything, and I obviously didn’t. Some of these things I could easily do without too much planning, like reading in the park, but others required a bit more planning and aligned schedules with my friends – which was more complicated than I had thought initially!
All in all, I’m really happy about how my summer went: I swam in the sea, made “seasonal” cold drinks and smoothie bowls, went on some road trips and watched many sunsets. I also managed to finish sewing a summer top and use my bike a lot!
The main things I didn’t do so much of were “touristy” things in Brussels, mainly because I wasn’t home much and when I was, I was busy unpacking, meeting friends and just chilling. But I do feel that I made the most of the summer, that is certain.
Now, I want to do the same for autumn, and I have to say that now that I have written this little list, I can’t wait to start ticking off some things, so here it is!
What is on your autumn bucketlist?
