Creating the mood for autumn

Any moment now, we will be unable to ignore the prompts encouraging us to make a mental seasonal transition from summer to autumn. Are you ready? Hmm, thought so. Me neither! But I intend to get ready. The fab-fab-fabulous presence of the sun this summer has undeniably lifted my weather spirit and I am set on making the most of the other seasons. As a sign of gratitude, let’s say, mixed with a secret hope that it will somehow cheer on a repeat next year. So, in order to softly disentangle from summer and ease the way in to autumn, let’s set the scene and create the mood.

:: Candle light. Lots of candle light. Especially on the breakfast table.

:: Red cheeked forest picnics and cool fingers wrapped around mugs of hot chocolate.

:: Sleeping cocooned in newly washed winter duvets.

:: The sound of rain on the roof.

:: Wearing old favourite jumpers and mismatching woolly socks.

:: Baking bread and trying out new autumnal recipes (my pins/inspiration can be found here).

:: Wood fires – indoor ones and outdoors.

:: Walks on a beach on windy days breathing crisp seaweed tasting air.

:: Pyjama mornings spend reading (preferably with croissants and good coffee).

:: Chilled out evenings in the company of good friends, with legs wrapped up in blankets and curled up in cushy sofas, protected from persistent drafts.

And abundant apples and soft music and leaves turning golden and extra hot showers and mint tea and…and…and…..

So, what do you say…..feeling a bit more ready?

It is going to be a great autumn. How can it not?
