Autumn Favourites

Autumn leaves in background and title text

Summertime is over It’s Autumn. Little side note, this isn’t a post where I gloriously praise products and new clothes, as truth be told I haven’t bought anything new in weeks – and I haven’t bought anything specifically because it’s Autumn. Instead, here I will bask in all this Autumn like and little moments of joy Autumn brings to my simple life.

  1. Darker nights. I don’t know about you, but something about those darker nights really make me feel cosier. Especially on a Saturday night, just sat on the sofa with the family watching crappy Saturday night TV and with some comfy pjs on. Ah bliss.
  2. The colours. No one can mention Autumn without talking about the beautiful colours of the changing seasons. The amount of stunning pictures I’ve seen on my Instagram feed alone is enough to warm anyone’s heart. Truly, it is a season that makes you appreciate nature that little bit more.
  3. Stew and dumplings. For me, nothing says Autumn is here like a bowl of homemade beef stew with dumplings and a slice of bread. That is food that is good for your heart.
  4. Hot chocolates. Nothing beats coming in from a nice Autumn walk collecting leaves, acorns, conkers and sticks with your little ones and then sticking the kettle on and having a nice hot chocolate.
  5. Getting the comfy clothes out. Summer is over, not like we have much heat here in England, but Autumn see’s the big cosy coat brought out, along with your boots and scarf. Can you beat getting wrapped up and going on a nice walk in the crisp air?

Do you have a favourite thing about Autumn? Do you have any traditions you do in this season?

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

  1. I was just talking today about how much I used to *love* when it began getting darker earlier, because it meant that I would begin sleepytime mode early and be ready to go into dreamland at a reasonable time. Now that I am a mom, I wish that we had a little more daylight after my kids’ naps so they could run around and get ALL their ya-yas out!

    Other than that, I do love the fall season. The leaves changing, wearing a new sweater, everything “apple” (apple cider, apple pie, etc, etc). And let’s not forget how cozy a glass of good pinot noir tastes in one’s tummy when there is a little chill in the air!


  2. I think the colors of the trees are my favorite! Darker nights are bitter sweet lol. I’m still trying to catch up with the daylight savings that just happen lol. Other than that there’s so many good things about autumn!💞💞

  3. Every time a new season starts, I think how much I love it. I can’t put a finger on my favourite, because there is something brilliant about them all. Crisp frost on bare branches and the heads of snowdrops in winter, spring flowers and new born lambs in spring, the full bloom of summer and the summer sun. The beginning of each season is a reminder of how good it, and every other season, is 🙂

  4. I love autumn and specifically everything you have mentioned except the darker nights. Not a fan of dark nights and morning but I’m sure I’ll get used to it soon enough. I love getting all cosy in front of the fire and shutting the world out at this time of year.
    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday
