Why I Love Autumn...


Today officially marks the start of another autumn and let me tell you - I couldn't be more excited than I am while writing this post. Even though I was born in June, the cooler months will always have my heart, deeply, truly and forever. I don't dislike summer, and I fully embrace all the fun outdoor activities it brings with it but lets be honest...we haven't had much of one this year, so for what feels like weeks now I've been longing for all the little joys that Autumn brings with it.

I'm sure I've done one of these posts each year since starting my blog so I felt I couldn't miss out on doing one this year, and I'm sure we could all use another "I love Autumn" post, couldn't we? Of course -so here's what I love!

The Weather - It's still warm enough that you can enjoy spending time outside but you can feel it starting to cool down. Even on bright sunny days you know that winter is right around the corner.

Nights In - Little in life makes me happier than snuggling up under blankets and duvets as the nights begin to get longer. I know so many people who really hate this about the second half of the year but it's honestly one of my favourite things. It feels so utterly perfect to come home after a long day, to get into your most comfortable pyjamas and snuggle up on the sofa, with absolutely no added guilt about being in your pyjamas at 6pm. I mean...its dark outside -it's perfectly acceptable. All I'm missing now is the log fire.

The Clothes - Autumn is the absolute best time (for me anyway) for clothes. I just love layering, and feeling extra cosy when you go out. It's still warm enough that you can get away with jumpers, hats a and scarfs but not yet so cold that you need a coat everyday. I am the biggest fan of all things knitwear, and in autumn pulling the sleeves down over my fingers and walking around with a hot drink just makes me so happy.

Halloween - I adore Halloween, the dressing up, the caramel apples, the pumpkin carving, the tasty treats and the decorations but...I hate being scared! I mean HATE it. I never watch scary films and won't even walk into a room if I think someones hiding to jump out on me so I enjoy all non-scary aspects of it.

Bonfires Night - There's something about fireworks I've always loved, I find them fascinating and spending the evening in a crowd of people, all going "oooh" "aaahhh" is really a lot of fun. You of course leave smelling of the large Bonfire you've all been warming yourselves round while drinking your cider and eating your baked potatoes but it wouldn't be right if you didn't.

The Food - From the minute autumn arrives I crave all things comfort food, from mac n cheese to hearty soups and stews...I want it all! It's also no secret that I love to bake and come late September I want to make all things apple. Expect some seriously comforting sweet and savoury treats coming your way soon.

Crispy Leaves - I will always be a 5 year old at heart, and it fills me with joy to leap from pile to pile of crispy colourful leaves on crisp autumn days. Or walk through forests listening to them crunch under foot. I used to love walking Cody (before we lost her) when the ground was covered, she loved jumping in the piles as much as I did, coming up with a mouthful of leaves.

There are so many more tiny things I love about this perfect season, but these are the main ones. Are you excited about autumn, or are you still in summer mode?



  1. I have a post similar to this scheduled, but I agree with all of these! The only thing I don't like is the dark mornings when you have to get up for work haha but the clothes, food and bonfire night is always a winner! xxx
