The sun is shining. The smell of BBQs fills the air. It’s summer. And what am I doing? Pinning all things Autumn on Pinterest while laying in the sun.
It’s true, I confess. I can’t wait for the cloudy days, the amber leaves falling around my feet, and warming soups with bread. I can’t wait to drag out all of the films I watch when the weather cools, curled up under a blanket with a cat on my lap. I can’t wait for Halloween, seeing the joy on little children’s faces while handing out sweets to giddy trick or treaters. I can’t wait for bonfire night and the lead up to December (when I’ll magically swap into Christmas obsessive mode).
It’s safe to say I’m counting down the days to September.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving this hot weather (which is pretty hard to come by here in the UK), but I’m CRAVING that oversized sweater weather. I want to watch Practical Magic and read Harry Potter in the cosiest season of all, is that too much to ask???
You better believe that I’m already stocking up on autumn essentials like scented candles from etsy. I’m pinning pumpkin recipes like there’s no tomorrow. I’m planning a trip to the Harry Potter studio tour (again) as we speak, because Harry Potter IS autumn, right?!
Summer, I love you, but what Autumn and I have is a special kind of love.
Are you like me? Can you not wait for Autumn?
