18 awesome things about autumn

I am fully embracing the arrival of autumn. It’s my very favourite time of the year and there is so much to love about it. 

  • It’s finally cool – I don’t do warm at all, hence the Twilight vampire complexion
  • Crisp morning air 
  • Winter boots
  • Wearing slipper socks to work under your boots 
  • The way dew highlights spiders webs 
  • It’s acceptable to drink hot chocolate at any time of the day
  • The leaves changing colour 
  • Mist rising off the fields
  • Preparation for Christmas (much better than Christmas itself) 
  • Snuggly hats and gloves 
  • Winter coats 
  • Warming up by the fire
  • Being all cosy sitting by a window with a warm drink and a book and looking out at autumn in all it’s glory
  • Soup for lunch 
  • Going deer-spotting with my camera 
  • Layering clothes  
  • I can start knitting copious amounts of hats again (I need to make some mittens this year)
  • It’s time to crack out the Christmas scented candles
