It’s finally arrived – my (very) favourite season of the year. I wish I could live in a country where it’s late September/early October all the time. I mean, what’s not to love? The weather is perfect, the air is crisp, it’s cozy inside, you can snuggle up with layers and scarves again and everything looks golden. As a constant goal-setter, I set some autumn goals as well (if you can legitimately ‘make apple pie’ a goal) and here’s my list:
Autumn Goals 2016
+ As mentioned above: make apple pie ;) Or apple crumble, another big favourite.
+ Take part in a (creative) writing competition.
+ Make socks. I really want to get back into knitting again!
+ Make spicy hot chocolate (like the one at Tinderbox in Glasgow) and put marshmallows in there. I especially miss Scotland this time of year, so spicy hot chocolate is the right cure always.
+ Take short morning walks right after waking up.
+ Get a new and cosy pyjama and some slippers.
+ Make pumpkin pie. I actually never had any before!
+ Make scented candles.
+ Find a great autumn perfume.
+ Take a walk through the woods and go on an autumn hike.
+ Read all the books.
+ Make homemade bread (there’s so many food related to do’s here!). Fresh bread plus cheese are my love language.
+ Go vintage shopping.
+ Make blackberry crumble.
+ Go to the hamam.
+ Have a lot of bubble baths and put some masks on.
+ Drink all the cider.
+ Go apple-picking.
+ Continue going to Pilates once a week.
+ Start calligraphy. I’ve wanted to for ages and starting in autumn would be the perfect timing to make Christmas cards!
+ Put cayenne pepper in my tea (I read this somewhere and it sounded interesting). Did you ever try?
Autumn, I’m ready for you! What’s are your favourite autumn goals or new traditions that you can’t wait to start?
