  4. Dance in public. – We saw Ed Sheeran and I danced so hard! Such an amazing show. The only thing that would have made it better was if Ed played Barcelona during his set.

  21. Compliment a stranger. – This is my view from the host stand at the restaurant where I work. I make it a point to compliment any cool thing that I notice about a person. Sometimes it’s a vague “you guys look so nice tonight!” Sometimes it is about a specific thing like a dress or shoes.

  31. Go to a corn maze/harvest festival. – Didn’t quite make it to a corn maze but at least found a cute pumpkin patch.44979707_2128030887459234_590635136517668864_o
