I’m such a summer girl at heart so I’ve always found the transition from bright sunshine and warm weather, to brisk mornings and dewey grass a little hard to cope with. Nevertheless, this year I’m fully embracing everything autumn has to offer.
I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to fall in love with this time of year, I mean it’s such a beautiful season, so it’s clear why everyone loves it. It’s great watching the colours of the leaves change and any excuse for a hot choccy with extra cream and marshmallows is a win with me!
Walks in the park
We are so lucky to have a wonderful park right on our doorstep and if I’ve enjoyed anything about maternity leave it’s been the opportunity to just go for a walk whenever I want to. I think that’s possibly one reason why I’m loving the transition into autumn so much, because I’ve had the chance to enjoy these walks in every season.
Who doesn’t love a chilled-out evening, in front of the TV with a good hot drink to accompany? I picked up these extremely cute pumpkin cookies in T.K. Maxx the other day and I can’t wait to enjoy one with a good cuppa!
Even just adding a few scattered pinecones, and a bouquet of flowers in beautiful autumnal colours will give an instant refresh to your decor. I’ve popped a vase of flowers in each room, along with pinecones and pumpkins and it’s fair to say I’m feeling very cosy!
I love this little combo I added to our windowsill as it gives our house an instant autumnal feel.
Do you love autumn? How do you embrace the change of season?
