19 Autumn Activities & Adventures for 2019

You guys! We are just two short days away from the OFFICIAL start of fall! Although, in my little part of the world, it’s still feeling very much like summer with highs in the mid 80s this weekend. Nevertheless, autumn is mere days away and it’s time to start planning so we can make the most of it!

Last year I shared a Fall Fun List (HERE) with 31 ways to make the season memorable, and all are still very viable options for this fall if I do say so myself. But this year I’m sharing a NEW list with 19 NEW ways to make Autumn 2019 one to remember! Let’s jump in (to the pile of leaves), shall we?

What would I do if I had 12 hobbies going all at once? lol… I’d have no time to go to work and definitely no time to write this blog. Yet here I am, so I think it’s an overall success!

Shall we check in?
