Fall in New England means foliage, fairs and Ferris wheels. Oh and apple picking, gorging on apple cider donuts, pumpkin carving, and getting to wear oversized sweaters for three months straight. It truly is my ideal season. Call me basic, it’s fine. Here is my perfect fall bucket list. And as of today, I have checked off five items. How many have you?
