ABCs of Autumn

    Happy Autumn everyone! While I always finding writing these lists a bit of a challenge, they are one of my favourite things to draft with the changing of the seasons. So here’s to the 3rd annual ABCs of Autumn!

    Apple harvesting; fall pick-your-own farms are the best! 

    Be a part of a book club. I’m a member of some online book clubs, but I’d like to join a non-virtual one. 

    Carving pumpkins. 

    Dark nail polish being seasonally appropriate. There’s nothing I love more on my nails than a deep dark blue or red.

    Embracing hygge. 

    Find a new job.

    Going on long country walks, admiring the changing leaves, with a thermos of hot chocolate or coffee in tow.

    Halloween celebrations. 

    Instagram challenges. Not strictly a fall activity, but I hope to grow my account over the next few months.

    Join in new classes. Hopefully, some pure barre or reformer pilates. 

    Keep advancing on Memrise to learn a new language. 

    Live in boots, scarves and comfy jumpers. (I do love my boots.) 

    Mornings wrapped up warm in a duvet with coffee and a good book.

    Nature’s beauty. There’s nothing more stunning than the changing of leaves and all the beautiful autumnal colours. 

    Organise a new flat and buy furniture as appropriate. 

    Pumpkin cookies, pie, coffee and bread. Bring on all things pumpkin! #basic

    Quiet early misty mornings. (Aka try to become more of a morning person and go to bed earlier.)

    Run at least 3x a week. 

    Sausage dogs. I want one. Badly. It is my breed of choice. 

    Thanksgiving dinner. This will be my 7th in England! 

    Unpacking and getting settled in somewhere new. A new chapter and adventure for Sam and I begins this autumn!

    Vacations to new places. Hopefully we’ll go on honeymoon at the end of the Autumn. 

    Watching scary films.

    Xylophone band practice in a new city. 

    Yoga challenges. Try to do more at home every day. 

    Zzzzs. As soon as we get settled into a new place, our year of craziness (wedding, moving, etc) will be over and we can relax a bit more than we have one for most of 2016.

    England || Hever Castle

    On Bank Holiday Monday, Sam and I ventured out to Hever Castle for a day of exploring and castle gazing. It just so happened that it was the big summer jousting…
