Dallas

Modern Eve's Fall Bucket List

Summer has come and gone and everything is all pumpkins, football and layered knits. I absolutely love the autumn season! In Dallas, it’s really the best time of year to be outdoors. Sunny days that have a slight crisp in the air are perfect for afternoons at the park, patio brunches and walks around the lake. And while I wouldn’t consider myself extremely outdoorsy (camping is definitely not my idea of vacation), I am really enjoying spending more time in nature as I get older. That’s also a value I really want to foster with Beckett as she grows up.

However, now that I have this little person to consider when making plans, I’ve found that life is just a little less spontaneous. Thank goodness I’m a planner, especially when it comes to my social life. As in, I make restaurant reservations months in advance. This fall, I’m really looking forward to enjoying the outdoors and getting creative. There’s so much inspiration, it’s hard not to. Below is my bucket list for this fall, which goes until December 21st, by the way. Make sure to follow me on instagram (@moderneve) and see what items I am able to cross of my list!
