An Ode To Autumn

As the days get a little shorter, the weather a little bleaker and the dark nights draw in, I prepare to bid farewell to my favourite season; Autumn. There’s no other time quite like it, when the air is crisp, yet the warm sun still shines and the bright yellow and orange trees glow. I’m really looking forward to Christmas, but Winter is just too cold and depressing (especially if you live in England).

I feel as though this Autumn has been especially different to any other; I started a new job, bought myself a whole new wardrobe, I (sort of) moved to Manchester (I don’t actually live here yet but I spend 12+ hours a day here and it’s quickly becoming my favourite city). I’m standing on my own two feet for the first time and I’m learning just how strong I can be.

As the seasons quickly change once again, i wanted to look back at my favourite memories from the last couple of months…

Things I love most:
Walking through crisp golden leaves
Pumpkin Spiced Lattes/Pumpkin themed everything
Cosy days with a book, blanket, and a brew
Lush pamper nights with cinnamon-scented candles + bath bombs
Walking through the forest with a hot chocolate
Jumpers, jumpers, and more jumpers
Watching You’ve Got Mail for the 100th time this month
Listening to Neil Young : Harvest whilst cycling through the golden trees at the park and feeling more Autumnal than Harry Potter drinking pumpkin juice in The Three Broomsticks

Autumn is my favourite season; chunky knits, corduroy, and deep burgundy colours all look so beautiful amidst a blanket of crisp changing leaves.
