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 

Please, gush about autumn below. 

  • Oh I would love to get my knitting skills up to the point where I could knit myself some mittens or a hat.

    • I haven’t made mittens yet but hats are really easy. They’re pretty much all I’ve knitted so far – they’re so much easier than I expected.

  • Yes hot chocolate! <3 Sadly I’m now Starbucks deprived so I will have to try out Costa’s offerings this year 🙂

    • Awh no! I tried Starbucks Gingerbread Latte last year, wow it was delicious. I don’t have one near me but like you, I’ve got a Costa so I’ll have to give them a try.

  • I am so so so happy that it’s autumn, too! It’s one of my favorite times of year, and my equally light complexion is finally looking forward to getting some relief from the sun. I love walking my dog and looking up and seeing all the golden, orange, and brown leaves on the trees. And I love waking up and hearing rain outside (best feeling ever).


    • Yes it’s so nice to take the dogs on a long walk and then go home to get all warm and cosy. I like hearing the rain outside if it’s a weekend and I haven’t got to get up, otherwise it makes it even harder to get out of bed.
