Mon 23rd September was the official start of Autumn this year, the start of my favourite season. Everyone has a favourite season, most people will say summer, but for me its Autumn and Winter and here are my reasons why:
Reasons I love Autumn
- The crisp fresh brisk air in the morning. (when its not raining here in Scotland)
I love a good clear crisp morning during Autumn, there is just something so refreshing about stepping outside and taking a deep breath and the air is cool and sharp.
- Darker evenings
Not only does it make the kids go to bed, but I love having the blinds closed and the fairy lights on being all snug and cozy in the house
- The leaves
I love to see them change colour and begin to fall, and walking through them when they are nice and crisp – hate them when they are wet and on the roads though!
- Woolly hats and jumpers
I love getting the cozy jumpers and hats looked out for this time of year, being a snug and warm when you are out and about it a must!
Throw the sandals in the cupboard its time to dig out the winter boots! I may need to invest in a new pair this year,but I love wearing my boots from now until almost summer!
- Slow cooker and soups
We tend to use out slow cooker a lot more in the Autumn and winter months, so its time to dig it out and find some new recipes.
My favourite holiday! Can’t wait to decorate and dress up and pick out a pumpkin.
- Its getting closer to Christmas
Second to Halloween Xmas is also my favourite holiday! Time to start planing the gift list for the kids!
- Cozy nights in.
Autumn gives me a guilt free excuse to stay home and snuggle up and watch movies and drink hot drinks, basically hibernate!
- Visiting the park and running through the leaves
