Hello Autumn

Today marks the Equinox and with it comes the official first day of Autumn – we’ve officially made it to my favourite time of year! It’s been creeping up for a little while, the changing seasons always seem to start earlier than I expect, but there is still plenty to come. The colours on the trees have started to change but there is plenty of green left, ready to turn into the crisp yellows, golds, reds and browns, in time for the leaves to fall and carpet the ground around them.

The temperature is cooling but again has a while to go. Cold may not be the most pleasant, but when it means you can pop on an extra cosy jumper or snuggle down under a soft blanket in the evenings, it becomes a far more pleasant experience.

It’s a great time of the year for food, everything tastes better with added cinnamon after september, which is the excuse you need to get baking and creating sweet treats, filling your home with wonderful smells in the process. There’s nothing quite like a chilly morning with the scent of warm fresh cookies floating through the house.

Mostly though, I’m most excited to get outside. Autumn makes me realise quite how beautiful the world around us is, and it reminds me to get out and get walking as often as I can. I’m looking forward to exploring the woods and forests as the colours change, adventuring through my local area that little bit further.

What are you looking forward to this Autumn?

  • Autumn is the most exciting time of year for me! It means I can get amazing photos during the day and cosy up at night, haha! Lovely flat lays xx

  • I love autumn for chilly weather and layering, but I also love the long days of summer. Pretty soon it’s gonna get dark at 4pm – definitely not looking forward to that!

  • You are just the queen of Autumnal photography! I am looking forward to watching fireworks on bonfire night, carving pumpkins, watching horror films whilst eating halloween candy and wrapping warmer & warmer as the weeks go on.
