Operation Autumn 2015


All right. I’m weak and -just- stressed enough to want to have something to keep me on track.

Buffalo also feels like fall already. I’m not sure why. It just feels like a particularly warm autumn, not late summer.

Welcome to this year’s Operation Autumn, where we attempt to tackle all the things that make autumn awesome. I’m not going to post a link up, but feel free to discuss what you’re doing this autumn in the comments.

In order to participate, write your own autumn bucket list and work on it until the first day of winter. Then feel awesome.
