The Fall #FindtheFun List
By Tuckernuck on
Each season we create a list of new experiences to try, with the simple goal of finding the fun.
1. Make Carrot Soup
It’s hard to beat the comforting satisfaction of a warm, earthy soup. (scroll to bottom for recipe)
2. Do a Random Act of Kindness
Bring a smile to a friend, neighbor or first responder’s face by making them a flower arrangement.
3. Listen to a New Podcast
Whether learning something or laughing, few things are more entertaining than a new podcast.
4. Organize a Craft Beer Tasting
In the spirit of Oktoberfest, plan a socially distant beer tasting. Prost!
5. Dress Up for a Date Night at Home
Wear a new fall frock and set a beautiful table. Support your favorite neighborhood spot by getting takeout.
