Autumn could definitely be the top contender for my favourite season.
1. New Beginnings
When September rolls around I feel like it’s a new beginning, nearly like the start of the year again. I think September is an easier time to set goals and get things moving in comparison to January. It can be quite a sluggish month after all the hyper of December. Plus, you spend it trying to work your way through Celebrations and Roses, right? I have really enjoyed setting some targets for myself from September 1st in my new business venture and have loved seeing some goals coming together – there is no better feeling than ticking things off that “To Do” list!
2. Getting Cosy at Home
It is finally time to start thinking about lighting the fire again. This is my number one love of the cold dark nights rolling in. Just the glow of the fire I absolutely love, especially at the weekend when there is no rush to be anywhere. I live for those days when we are still in our PJs watching a movie with a roaring fire and a mug of hot chocolate…it is literally a hug in a mug!
3. New Season Wardrobe
Putting away those t-shirts and dresses can be a bit depressing especially after such a long run of sunshine and great weather. However I just love putting on jeans, a big comfy knit jumper and not have to worry about getting fake tan on those legs! I also think it’s a lot more fun seeing new Autumn trends emerging and getting your wardrobe sorted for the new season ahead.
4. Fun Holiday Seasons
With having two children I find you tend to get more into certain holidays and for us this year it will definitely be about Halloween. I suppose it is quite an American tradition to decorate the house and go all out, yet our shops here in the UK are absolutely filled with some great decorations and ideas to create that spooky look. I plan to make more of an effort this year especially with school off for the holiday and let the girls know its not a scary time of year but it can also be a lot of fun. I’ve found some great ideas over on Pinterest.
5. Great TV Returns
Television just gets better come September. All the good TV shows start making a comeback like The Great British Bake off, MasterChef, Strictly Come dancing and lots of new shows are added to Amazon Prime and Netflix. Once these shows start thought it does automatically make me think about the C word of course…CHRISTMAS! Now that a whole other blog post!
