Operation Autumn

Each year I swear that I’m going to have an amazing autumn this year, and each year I’m disappointed. I never seem to hit the levels of activities and enjoyment that I long for.

Not this year. This year I’m kicking off Operation Autumn.

What is Operation Autumn? At least once a week from now until just after Thanksgiving I’m going to pick one item off of this list. I’ll blog about the more exciting ones, and provide feedback on my hits and misses. I know that I’m not going to be able to hit all of these things between time, money, and weather constraints. I’ll update the list as I do them. The numerical order isn’t important-they’re on my list as I thought about them.

  1. Very inspiring. I’ll have to make an Austin-version, although I suspect it won’t feel nearly as autumnal, as Austin is lacking in both ghosts and apples.
