I have really been enjoying seeing bloggers write about autumn so I thought I would give it a go. Hot chocolate with whipped cream and mini marshmallows by my side and I'm ready to jump right into the multi-coloured leaves and talk of big jumpers and the early darkness that takes the innocence of the day away - oooo, how rather magical!
It's such a beautiful season because you step outside, two pairs of socks and some boots and the leaves are so sweet and the morning is sleepy and the eyes of cars are waking up, slightly misty-fied. It's time to pretend to be dragons again, blowing into the slightly crisp air and enjoy the feel of a warm coat and gloves. It's autumn again.
Autumn is awesome because I love getting in from the chill after a long day, throwing on a big baggy jumper and curling up on the sofa with a hot chocolate and a film or a book or with my family. It's simple and refreshing - but in a warm, cosy kind of way.
It sounds silly because a reason I love summer is because of how light it is for so long, but I love autumn because it gets dark more quickly. It makes every evening a little bit lovelier when home time has arrived. Being all warm and cosy with the comfort of knowing you don't have to go out is just the perfect set up. Heating on? Check. It's sure to be the perfect autumn night.
What else does autumn mean? CHRISTMAS IS COMING. Yes, I'm one of those types. I love Christmas and everything about it and therefore the build up (which started a good few months ago in my world) is oh so exciting. It's starting to get a bit frosty in the morning and it's almost time to buy Christmas cards and eat festive treats. Autumn makes me all jolly.
So far autumn has already given me some fabulously warm memories: I've had a movie day with a friend; baked to my heart's content; watched the rain.
My Autumn Bucket List:
- Go puddle splashing in my wellies
- Buy a new coat
- Take pictures
Autumn makes me feel warm inside. What do you love about autumn? Or, do you not like it? I'd love to know!
