I absolutely love autumn; it is by far my favourite season of the year and I think perhaps the thing I love the most is when the season first starts to turn from summer; when you begin to get the gradual changing of the colour of the leaves, the weather becomes noticeably cooler (offering lots of opportunity to bring out those boots and skinny jeans!) and it feels like the perfect time for fresh starts.
I don’t think you get such a clear transition between seasons at any other time of year which is partly what makes it my favourite!
With the kids starting a new school year it just feels natural to make space for out with the old and in with the new and although it is usually the time of year when we have a big clear out, we’ve made bigger changes to our family life this year. Not only did we move house and the kids change school but I also started a new part-time job. It has been a big adjustment for all of us, one that we still haven’t quite got a handle on yet if I’m honest.
Despite the changes that have taken place, it is also a really exciting time of year for us with lots of things going on. We’ve been making the most of the slightly milder weather with trips to the park after school and time spent in the garden…it won’t be long before we can’t go out without being wrapped up to the nines so we’ll wring time outdoors for all its worth over the next few weeks.
I am hoping for some down-time in between now and Christmas but who really knows whether that will happen?! Every time I think we are ready for a quiet period, something else happens which has us running around again.
I also have lots of ideas of blog posts I want to write which are all autumn related, vlogs I want to film and things I want to share but finding the time is proving a little trickier than I thought so I hope you will bear with me through it all!
