Well the season is well and truly in full swing and I’m embracing it with open arms, hello Autumn I rather like you. I am always a little apprehensive betwixt the end of Summer and the glorious few months that follow. I am ready now to let go of that limbo, the reluctance to let go of the warm sun and sandal wearing days, and whole heartedly grasp the magical moments that Autumn brings.
I like it when the temperature drops so that I can start layering my wardrobe, chunky knits over skinny jeans, woolly socks in boots, snuggle into well wrapped scarves. I even change my handbag from wicker basket to my Nara bucket bag with it’s beautiful soft buttery leather.
Dark mornings snuggled under the duvet for 5 more minutes than usual, bowls of warming porridge by candle light before the day gets started. Then at the end of the day curling up under blankets with warming cups and indulgent books. If I had a log burner it would be lit, crackling warmth infusing the room, one day I will have one!
Bracing walks kicking the jewel coloured fallen leaves, comfort food made with locally sourced delicious seasonal produce. Displaying a myraid of pumpkins and gourds in all their varying colours shapes and sizes.
To truly feeling those moments of hygge to wrap it around you to savour those precious memories created whilst doing all the wonderful Autumn things that you do. To get a sense of what this means I would highly recommend this profound little book written by Louisa Thomsen Brits called the book of hygge (the Danish art of living well) a perfect read whilst snuggled up in your favourite armchair.
So yes once again Autumn I rather do like you…..
