Season List: Fall 2012

I love blogs. I have a folder of favorites on my internet browser. Some people enjoy waking up on the weekends, having a cup of coffee and reading the morning newspaper. Instead, I prefer a cup of tea and my list of bloggers.

The reason I say this is because I got an idea from one of my favorite bloggers – Katie Bower. She creates “Season Lists” for her family at the start of every season. Some ideas are simple, some are traditions, and some are a little out of the ordinary.

I live with a man who doesn't sit still. Granted, he loves a day to "vegg" on the couch, but for some reason, our lazy days never correspond. Just when I've curled up in a cozy blanket with my overdue shows on the DVR, he says something like this: “We don’t ever do anything!; Can we go do something?; I don’t want to sit at home.” If you know us, we do quite a bit, but sometimes not enough to fulfill his adventurous spirit.

I decided creating seasonal lists would be the perfect idea for us.  So when he starts blurting those said statements out at me, I can send him to the fridge, where our list is hanging.

This is a new thing for us, but one that we enjoy. In fact, on our long drives is when we discuss ideas and things we'd like to do. I usually find myself digging through the center console for a pen and scrap of paper to scribble our ideas down. Then add them to the "list" when we get home. 

Our very first "Season List" was this Summer [2012].

Summer 2012 

It was a busy Summer, given our wedded bliss and honeymoon, but we accomplished quite a bit. We paddleboard'ed for our very first time in St. Lucia, we made ice cream with Scott's parents white sitting around a campfire, we mini golf'ed and I won, we went to a farmers market in Berthoud and bought tomatoes and cucumbers, we got hitched and celebrated with our family and friends, we went on a hot air balloon ride for our 2 month wedding anniversary, we biked downtown early in the summer- but skipped the ice cream and went for a bbq dinner instead, we had our very own Olympics party - by ourselves, but with a cake and crab-legs, we went to a Rockies game with a groups of friends and cheered loudly during the grand slam, and we attended the annual brewfest in Ft. Collins during the peak of the High Park Fire. All the things we missed will be the start of next years list!

Here is a peek at our Fall 2012 List:

Fall 2012

Some we've already completed, some we have planned, and others are just extras. As we enter the third week of Fall this week - we'll be collecting our Kickball Championship trophy for the second year in a row, celebrating our 3 month anniversary at an Alanis Morissette concert, and ending the week with our very last camping trip of the year. Amen.

I am quickly learning one of my favorite parts of being a newlywed is creating new traditions. Have I mentioned lately, I'm loving Fall.
