One Billion Days Until Summer

I’ve been asked if there’s a fall list, and usually, I’m quick to say HECK NO because I hate Fall! But this year, as I enter my dark season, I decided to create a list of 24 things that will hopefully keep my spirits up until May 24. So, rather than thinking of one-and-done items, I am seeking adventures and daily habits that will make the days feel less gloomy despite the weather.

Let me know if you want to join me for some moderate fun.
