What You Need to Know to Be Awesome at Fall

The nostalgia of Fall is never lost on me. Each year, I giddily pick apples and hike through forests of changing leaves. I buy new office supplies and refresh my workspace. I embrace the chill in the air with a cute coat and a cup of hot cider. And I eat s'mores. Like, crazy amounts of s'mores. 

Of course, the best way to conquer fall is to plan for it.

I can make anything about planning, lol. Anything. 

But it's true! If you're not proactively scheduling ways to enjoy this season and prepare for the next, you won't do much.

Here are 7 things you need to do to be awesome at fall:

1) Clean and Maintain your Home. 

Every month, I publish a new list of things to do to clean and maintain your home for that time of the year. You can find it in the library! 

2) Make Your Fall Bucket List


Decide how you want to spend your time this season and put it on a bucket list! Use it when you do your weekly planning to help balance all your hard work with a little seasonal joy.

3) Schedule Some Fall Fun!

4) Change Up your Recipes

For me, fall is the season of slow cooker dinners and afternoons making a perfect apple pie. Dig out your favorite fall recipes or check out my Fall Recipes Pinterest board for new ideas! 

5) Decorate Your Home

6) Host a Fall Gathering

Whether it's a football tailgate, a backyard bonfire, or a fall dinner al fresco, get it done! It doesn't have to be anything big, but you need to try to bring people together to enjoy the moment. Looking for tips on how to be a good host? I'll give you a sneak peek into my entertaining playbook on the blog in a couple weeks. 

7) Prepare for the Holiday Season

I know I'm going to get some flack for this, but you should really be preparing for the holidays now. See the replay of my 10 Clever Ways to Get Ahead of the Holidays here!
