The winter jackets are slowly starting to be peeled from the back of cupboards, the heating is starting to be put on at night and it’s already starting to get darker in the evenings. It’s officially official – Autumn is here. I don’t particularly have a favourite season, there’s something great about them all, but I thought I should spread some good news about the colder season to those who maybe prefer the warmer temperatures. Autumn isn’t all that bad!
1. The trees look amazing
You can’t argue with me when I say the tree’s look amazingly pretty in Autumn. The various mixtures of yellow, oranges and red make for a beautiful picture and view. There’s strangely something comforting and warm about the colours, despite the chill outside.
2. The leaves have got to go somewhere…
Once they no longer can look beautiful on the trees, they get to be our entertainment as we walk past. The satisfying crunch when you stand on a crispy leaf is the official Autumn sound. Also, who doesn’t love making a massive pile of leaves and either kicking, running or jumping into them? Boring people!
3. Fresh mornings
I love waking up to a crisp morning, where everything feels fresh and clear. It automatically makes me slightly more chirpy in the morning. Plus, it wakens me up quicker and lets me get on with the day.
4. Acceptable hot drinks!!
I am forever bringing my travel mug to school throughout all seasons, but it is now more acceptable to! Plus, a cosy hand warmer while you wait for your bus or train. It’s a win-win. Oh, and what about the Pumpkin Spice Lattes in Starbucks? THEY’RE BACK! I’m going to be honest, I’m only excited for the lovers of them. I’ve never tried one – yes, the shame. I will be sure to get in with the hype this Autumn though and see what the fuss is about!
Cosy jumpers, scarves, hats, gloves… the list goes on! The cosy and comfy clothes are back and I couldn’t be more excited! Plus, I don’t have to feel guilty about wearing black and dark colours any more – it’s acceptable. Yay!
I am currently creating a picture perfect night and getting myself excited. A dark, cosy night on the sofa in your woolies, a blanket, a mug of something hot and you’re favourite TV show or movie playing. And if you happen to have a window and some trees nearby, a perfect scenery for the perfect night. If none of this excites you, then always remember Christmas isn’t far around the corner. If you happen to be a scrooge and that doesn’t even excite you, then at least enjoy the extra hour in bed when the clocks go back!
Until next time…
