Fall Bucket List

Fall Bucket list with purpose

Fall is here! 

I love fall; the weather, the leaves, the clothes, the food, the drinks,  and the sentimentality that comes with the slow, colorful and visual picture of the passing of time. From carving pumpkins to apple picking this season provides so many opportunities for special family traditions! 

Since it is also our busiest season at Bought Beautifully, we have to be very purposeful to make sure we do all the things that we want to do, hence Bucket Lists! 

I usually just print off an already made list (there are so many cute ones out there), but this year we didn't want to focus just on what we want to do to, but

We also wanted to incorporate what we can and want to do for others

When we look at our life and the things we prioritize, serving others is top on that list, but it doesn't always make it on our daily to-do-list, and it has never actually made it on our seasonal bucket list, so this year we are changing that!

 Fall Bucket List - live with purpose

We want to pause and write down the things we want to do, to have a visual reminder of what we care about and want to prioritize in our life. 

Opportunities abound to serve others, and most often they show up at inconvenient times and we have no say in what they are - I hope that we will still be available and willing to say YES to those.  But we also want to be purposeful in taking time to think about how, we as a family, want to serve others this season, adding them to our bucket list and then prioritize doing them.

Join us - Print your free Fall Bucket list here. Or, if you live in Sheridan you can stop by our partner store, The Union, and pick up an already printed version! 

We want to hear what's on your list and specifically the ways your family will serve others this season! Share in the comments below or on your social media using #liveoutlove.

Loved this post. I have a chalkboard in my kitchen with a Summer Bucket list but I will change it today and add the new category. Thanks for the suggestion. I’d like to think I could do one small “something for someone” everyday— even if it’s telling the carry-out teenager “cute hair!” I will try to be more intentional about this. Thanks for encouraging all of us to be a little better.
