August Showers – Autumns coming !

This week has definatly seen a shift in the weather. Today I wore my Uggs on our afternoon stroll and as we headed home through the rain,  with the trees blowing leafs in our path I smiled….. Autumns just around the corner ! I think I’ve mentioned before how much I love autumn it’s my favourite season and I love everything about it. The burnt auburn colours, the crisp morning air and the dusky evenings spent snuggled under blankets and of course Halloween !


Yesterday, I took the girls to a country fair and the upcoming season change was evident. After pushing the double buggy through the hay fields (exhausting !) you were greeted with craft and food stalls dotted around hay bale tables and chairs.

I tried some yummy pumpkin spiced cake and I was hooked ! This morning it was raining heavily so it was the perfect time to stay inside and bake. The girls played with spatulas while Nat King Cole played on the radio – my perfect kind of Sunday ! I had a really quick recipe for the cake and I used cream cheese frosting and cinnamon sugar for the topping – it was yummy ! Perfect with a cup of tea !

So preparations for the new season are underway, I’ve picked out my seasonal candles , the decor for the house and the theme for Halloween ! (Check back for more autumn updates over the next few weeks ! )


The Uggs are out and the chunky knits are hanging eagerly waiting to be worn ! Roll on September !
