I'm looking forward to pumpkins carving and having them sit in my window. I love the weird smell of the little candle toasting the insides of the pumpkin xx

We love autumn, It’s the perfect combination of chilly mornings, cosy afternoons and bonfire scented evenings, and there’s always something to be excited about.For some reason to me getting all snuggly and cosy with my babies in ridiculously cute pyjamas and woollen blankets is more appealing than stripping bare for all to see on the beach in Summer.

Watching my little girl collect yellow leaves in the garden - yellow us her favourite colour!

Also... Stews, drinking hot chocolate and family snuggles cuddled up under a blanket smile ... the simple things.

I love autumn walks in our local woodland, kicking the leaves and hearing them crunch under our feet - perfect scene too when the suns rays peep through the trees

Visiting a pumpkin patch and maize maze, both have become autumn traditions and I love he colours of the pumpkins and gourds laying in the fields.

I like autumn fashion I love pulling on jumpers and boots. I love nature the leaves Tuning orange and red, the lovely sunsets and the heather in the woods then coming home to pull the curtains put the twinkly lamps on and cook autumn comforting food .
