Hello October

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” Anne of Green Gables

It’s no secret that Autumn is my favourite season, and October marks its beginning.  The foliage transforms into a stunning display of purples, reds, golds and yellows. Colourful, crunchy leaves litter the garden and streets, just waiting to be stepped on.  (That satisfying crunch will never get old!)

I love the Autumn so much that I want to honour and celebrate the season in the same way as we do Christmas – I’d love to have an autumnal tree in the house, adorned with fairy lights.  Jars filled with acorns and conkers, pumpkins on the fireplace. A roaring fire, scented candles throughout the house and the kettle always ready to be boiled for a cup of tea or hot chocolate.  In essence I think that’s what makes Autumn so special, it’s a treat for all of the senses.

October is also a month of inspiration and aspirations.  I thought I’d jot down some things I am planning and would like to achieve this month.

Return to Munich – I’ve been back home for a few weeks now which has been wonderful – there’s no place like home. But I’m excited to return – to be reunited with my Jamie, to see autumn in Bavaria and to do plenty of exploring. And on that note…

Blog more – I have more free time to post on here now and I fully intend to make the most of it.  I want to pour more time and love into my blog and continue to grow this space and my social media.

Relax – Not to be dramatic, but lately I have been having a bit of an existential crisis(!). I have been unsettled and discontent as I do not know exactly what I want to do with my life. So by relax, I mean try and keep in the present moment, not worry about the future and take things one day at a time.

    Great advice – keep it in the now. The past can be filled with resentment and the future filled with fire – the only moment I have is this one. The closer I am to the now, the closer I will be to the peace…. anyway, this is my experience. Love the autumn tree idea also – I want one this year!
