Autumn Bucket List


Autumn is my favourite time of year. It makes me want to do EVERYTHING but realistically I can’t do everything I want to do. I’m really trying to keep my goals attainable so that I can achieve them. For me, that means keeping things simple and fun that doesn’t involve a lot of planning or crafts. It also means, not comparing other people’s lists to my own.

So without further ado, my autumn bucket list!

1. Eat Cartem’s Donuts autumn flavoured donuts.
I’m not a huge fan of sweets but I’m a sucker for donuts. I just found out that Cartem’s comes out with autumn flavours, and I’m SO excited to try them. We’ll probably make this a date night.

2. Make apple crisp.
Apple crisp is one of those desserts we only make at Thanksgiving. It keeps it special and makes me crave it once October hits. I’ve always used this awesome Martha Stewart recipe. Apple Crisp is one of those desserts, even I, a cooking noob can make. It should also go without saying, I make this gluten-free now and it’s still AMAZING!

3. Go for high tea.
Nothing makes me crave tea more than cool crisp days. I had such a great time at Fur Elise Patisserie that we want to go for high tea again, but will probably try another place because we love trying new places.

4. UBC Apple Festival.
We tried to go to this last year at the University of British Columbia BUT it ended up being cancelled because it got rained out. This year, I’m hoping we can make it happen because I want to pick some apples and make some apple crisp!

5. The Lost Souls of Gastown Walking Tour.
I absolutely HATE scary movies despite my love of true crime shows, but I think that’s what I love about ghost tours. Ghost tours are a bit history with a bit of folklore and it’s perfect for a crisp autumn night.

I’m loving the crisp autumn days around here in Vancouver. The autumn days always have a way of getting me to go out and explore and I’m excited to explore new-t0-me events in Vancouver.

So tell me, what is on your autumn bucket list? Are there things you ALWAYS do everything autumn or do you change things up every year? What fun festivals or events does your city or town have during this season? Tell me about it!

  1. Apple crisp is an all-time favorite dessert of mine. So much that Angel’s occasionally had to go on unsuccessful quests to restaurants to find out if any of them sell apple crisp when I don’t have an oven to make my own…

  2. I love your list! Fall donuts and apple crisp… yum! My list is HUGE because I’m obsessed with Halloween / Fall. It is overwhelming. I like how manageable yours is. That ghost tour sounds awesome! If you go, let us know how it is!

  3. I’ve always wanted to do a ghost tour! I hope you got to do that and everything on your list! We tried to go apple picking yesterday but it was super crowded so we’re gonna try again next weekend.

    1. I will definitely recap the ghost tour if we manage to go! We were going to go apple picking last weekend BUT then it of course had to rain so we’re hoping to go this upcoming weekend!
