It’s officially fall… not that you would know that from the weather here in Virginia Beach. I mean, we live in the south, so I understand that it stays warmer longer, and I like that. But when it’s 85 degrees and 90% humidity?! That’s a no for me. So I’m channeling my inner basic-white-girl and trying to get into the spirit of things by sharing our ultimate fall bucket list! These activities are all ones we’ve done before and love, or want to try for the first time.
