I am a huge fan of of all seasons. I guess I just like when things change every now and then. And as days get shorter I am happily looking forward to the next season.
Autumn is a great excuse for me to slow things down again. After a super busy summer with lots of outdoor activities, long bbq nights with friends and family, and lots of park adventures I am very much looking forward to spending some quality time indoors. And as much as I love being outdoor and socializing with my friends Autumn seems like a perfect excuse to spent some quality time with myself. And here is why:
The perfect time to be cosy
Finally I can put on my warm socks and cuddle myself up with lots of blankets and pillows and no one will ask themselves why I am not outside running around in the park enjoying the sun. In Autumn it is perfectly fine to simply be a home buddy that only leaves the house when really necessary.
The perfect time for some comforting food
Tea, hot chocolate and cookies, do I need to say more? Autumn is great to get cooking. Don't get me wrong I love food all year around but some things just taste better when it's grey, rainy and cold outside.
Time to bring out our indoor entertainment favourites
I am a huge fan of board games, puzzles, and watching crap TV or DVD's but over the Summer we usually are to busy or would rather enjoy the sun instead. It's time to dust of the games and puzzles because fall is all about fun nights in with the family.
Time to prepared for the great outdoors
As much as I like to stay indoors during Autumn its also a great season for long walks through the woods. I love watching the leaves change and the crisp air and with the right clothing the occasional rain showers and the generally wet weather that comes with this season actually don't sound that bad. Bring on wool socks, wellies, jumpers, rain coats and umbrellas.
Like I said I really like all seasons but at the moment I am ready for the change and really looking forward to Autumn.
