It’s a foggy morning in London, the skies are clouded in mystery and the air is steeped in smug. This is the London I know and love, the mornings spent sipping coffee, browsing the newsreels and hearing the kids whispering in their loudest voice. For me November is special and my time of year to celebrate all the good in my life.
Today the boys and I are off to see the Christmas lights switch on in Carnaby Street, it’s a tradition my mum did when I was little, it was always planned as a day of fun and family time. I’m excited like a child in a candy store. Warm coats are out, hats and gloves are ready and pack lunches made, today is a day for all to enjoy.
It’s the time of year when we look back for a moment, we remember the spring days, summer nights and the year we’ve had. But then we move forward, for the prospects ahead look more fruitful. The changes couldn’t come soon for most!
So as Novermber has made its welcomed grace let’s not forget it’s also 55days till Christmas so start preparing for the biggest event before the new year. But before that I’m sharing some of the beautiful things I love about November, relax and I hope you enjoy.
Loving you, loving me xoxo
Autumn is finally here and my heart is filled with glee. For the leaves are falling, the nights are longer and the Moon has the winter roar that gives a little spookiness at night. Oh yes my favorite season has finally arrived and I am embracing all that it brings .
by James S. Tippett
I like the woods
When dry leaves hide the ground,
When the trees are bare
And the wind sweeps by
With a lonesome rushing sound.
I can rustle the leaves
And I can make a bed
In the thick dry leaves
That have fallen
From the bare trees
Its time for hot water bottles to warm our cotton sheets for hot chocolate and marshmallows and for watching family movies on the weekend in the comfort of your home. Yes. Autumn brings all the things and a little bit more.
Long walks and casual glances along the way, the fallen leaves are a symbol of the changing lives and all that nature brings. For me its a time to focus on finishing the year with great achievements. To look back and reflect on my accomplishments, resolve with my failings and focus on new beginnings .
An Open fire is an essential for any autumn setting, it’s the cosiness and warmth that makes one feel safe and secure. The crackling of wood the array of red, yellow and blue colour, all adding to the overall effect of tranquility and relation.
And with this post I wish you a farewell, for Autumn is the season when all will be well. So have faith in the changes you are about to see, for they are the ones that were always meant to be.
Loving you, loving me.
This time of year is perfect to me. Red leaves, foggy mornings and hot chocolate. For me Autumn is just the most perfect seaso. When the end of Summer starts to change into the darkness, death looms for many, the falling leaves, wilted flowerbeds and morning dew are the beginnings of change that nature intended.
