Oh Fall

by Sofia   -   in Random

Who´s excited for Fall? I know I know it´s still summer for one more month and I love it. But as you may well know Fall gets me all giddy and excited. On one hand there is the running around from one hobby to another and supervising home work and playdates and what have you but on the other hand there is the rhythm, the structure and there is obviously pumpkin spice. I mean I love summer, island season, flowery dresses and all that. But I also love my Hunter boots and weekly meal planning, candle light and spicing up my morning latte. I love cozy evenings on the sofa with a cup of tea and some favourite show on a rerun ( Fall always brings out the need to watch Downton Abbey). 

I will miss spending all day long with my girls and not having to wake them up early. I will miss the island when it closes for the season. I will miss warm mornings when you don´t even have to think about a pullover or socks. But I know the time will come for those again too. The uncertainties I had for the Fall luckily faded away and there is now room for planning so I can enjoy my favourite season ( they are all my favourites). 


I noticed that the new season brings anxiety to many so I thought I would list all the great things about Fall to make you feel better.

Pretty umbrellas

Candle light in a darkening night

Pumpkin spice

Cozy dinners

Looking through the windows at warm lights at night whilst on a run

Hot bubble baths after a rainy day

Tea and cashmere socks

Reading a great book with the previous

Your kids stories about school or hobbies or friends

Early breakfasts in candle light



Weekends that feel like weekends

The more structured Fall clothes

Big scarves

First crispy cool mornings

Planning winter vacations and city escapes

Wearing cute hats and beanies

Pretty leaves in oranges, yellows and reds

The impending Christmas at the end of Fall

I´m pretty sure there is a lot more to be excited about but I will stick to these now. I really really wanted to write rainy days but I´m pretty sure they don´t feel so cozy to others so I just stuck to pretty umbrellas. I hope your Fall anxieties melted in to a cozy and warm feeling of taking advantage of the season. 

Now back to the warm summer day and let´s enjoy August as the summer month it is.

Ihania syksyjuttuja! On taatusti joskus aiemminkin kommentoinut syksyaiheisiin, koska syksy on mielestäni kesän jälkeen touseksi paras vuodenaika. Tunnelman puolesta syksy on ehdoton ykkönen! Sateen ropina ikkunaan, tulen ritinä takkaan, kuumaa kuppiin, villasukat jalkaan, käpertyminen villashaaliin sohvan tai nojatuolin nurkkaan, käteen kirja/lehti/käsityö ja lasipurkeissa tuikut ja kynttilät. Ulkona upeat (vaahteran)lehtimeret, syksyn kuulaus,terassilla omenapaistosta haravoinnin lomassa. Ehkä omakin mieleni vähitellen virittäytyy syystunnelmiin, vaikka tänä vuonna tuntuukin jotenkin erityisen vaikealta päästää kesästä irti.

Täti Ruskea, se olikin juuri tämän postauksen tarkoitus, viritellä ajatuksia myös positiivisella ja odottavalla tavalla syksyyn jotta ei jäisi päällimmäiseksi se kaihon tunne kun kesä loppuu ja arki alkaa! Syksykin on ihana! Arkikin on ihanaa!
