Anyone who thinks that fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day – Shira Tamir
We have another guest post today from one of my favourite people. Amy of Becoming Mumsy agreed to write a Blogtober post for me. If you don’t already follow Amy then you need to get on that because you are missing out. You can follow her here on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
Autumn is one of my favourite seasons and October is one of my favourite months (after December, of course!).
So, I thought I’d keep in with Laura’s fabulous autumn theme for Blogtober, and write about five of my favourite things to do during this season!
I love shopping – doesn’t every girl?
In all seriousness, I love being able to go out and buy a new wardrobe. Buying a new winter coat takes a lot of thought, but I love doing it every year. Autumn is the perfect time to do it ready for the really cold weather.
I love stocking up on new cosy knits and getting my warm boots out.
One of my favourite things about autumn is the change in the leaves. I love watching the leaves fall from the trees, maybe not falling into my garden, but you can’t have it all!
There’s something so pleasing about being able to walk on crunchy, orange-toned leaves that have fallen on the ground. However, I feel tricked when I walk on one and it’s not crunchy!
Nothing says autumn to me like getting my blankets back on the sofa, and being able to sit snuggled up. This is something that I usually do when the weather gets colder, but it’s been on hold as we’ve managed to have beautiful warm weather. However, now that the weather is getting colder, it’s the perfect time to cuddle with Edith on the sofa under a nice warm blanket.
I never used to enjoy hot chocolate, but that all changed once I became pregnant. It’s now one of my favourite hot drinks, aside from tea.
I’ve been speaking to Laura about hot chocolate, and I’m desperate to give slow cooker hot chocolate a try after reading one of her posts!
Now, pumpkin picking is a new favourite. We had never been before, but I know it’s going to become an annual tradition for us! We had such a lovely time being able to walk through the rows and rows of pumpkins. It was a great activity for us to do as a family, so if you haven’t been, then I really recommend finding your nearest pumpkin patch!
Edith also seemed to enjoy herself and liked being able to feel and see all of the pumpkins. I think her constant babbling was a sign that she was having a good time!
So, there we have it! This is a list of some of my favourite things to do in Autumn.
