How are you dears? Life has been very busy busy now that I am back in school, but I am in love with the autumn weather we are having here, and that almost makes up for it. I have been spending days in forests hunting for acorns and feathers, and reading jane eyre and the blue castle, and watching movies. i wish we had a fireplace that i could drink cocoa by on the cold nights though.

I've been trying to enjoy the Fall as I love it so much, but I'm so busy working and getting ready to go back to Canada after being away for one year, that I hardly have time.
but once I'm back, I'll take walks in the woods, rad by the fireplace, watch movies, read, and have wonderful conversations with friends and family.
I really like your lists, and I've added you on listography, and once I get a minute I'll make sure to read them all carefully, you should probably be ready for an onslaught of comments :)

I hope you have a wonderful day, dear xx

That is such a lovely list, I have to save it somewhere so I can remind myself when I forget to be me. And your kitty is adorable!
For me Autumn is the most loveliest season and I am enjoying every bit of it. I love it when it gets colder and you get rosy cheeks, I love the crunching under my feet after a frosty night, I love the colours, I love everything about it! Especially on sunny days.

Sara, this list is just wonderful! And my favourite thing about autumn is the colder weather and all the changes too, the colours, leaves, looking for acorns and so much more, it really is a beautiful season <3 xx

Chloe. said...

what a lovely list, and i'd be happy to say i do almost all of those things. :)

i'm so excited for autumn, the air smells like magic, the chill running through brings people indoors and closer together, and for me, into books, and stories of wonderous adventures and worlds beyond ours.
top that off with early dark nights lit with fairy lights and candles, what a lovely atmosphere to involve yourself in tales. xx

we could go anywhere..

Katherine said...

Aah, you are so lovely!
I didn't realize how much I love Autumn until the leaves began to change :)

Enchanted Gardens said...

Ahh darling! Your words transport me to dreamland, i love it so much!
Hope you wouldn't mind if i borrow your list? Is magical, like you.
Have a loveliest day!

The best list ever. It is simply magical :)

You are such a magical soul Sara.
Thank you for being so lovely recently, things have been hard and I haven't a clue why because nothing terrible has happened (do you feel like that sometimes?) but you've been so sweet it really has meant a lot.
You capture such magic in your lists, they really are heart warming.
How to live magically, oh my, this was the one that stole my heart. Would you mind if I printed this off and pinned it to my bedroom wall? It's so beautiful and perfect and the last point made my eyes water a bit because it was so true and so important.
Your cat is so adorable, such a sweet picture.
I'm planning on doing a post about Autumn soon, your list has inspired me.

Your kitty is adorable!

Sara, I have to thank you for sharing the link to your listography on twitter as I had not come across the site before and now I can't wait to make my own!
You have such a pretty wallpaper there too. I love vintage wallpaper I wish companies would make affordable versions now.
I shall join tomorrow and look at your lists more. It is late here in England and time for sleep,
Sweet dreams, kat xx

I enjoy the mundane of the autumn season. By the way, I signed up for listography just because of you. I love it.

This is so wonderful! <3
I like autumn cause it's better than winter. I love the colours of the leaves. The smell of the air. But that's it really. I prefer the warmer, less rainy seasons. xxxx

Rose said...

lovely list! i should make a southern hemisphere spring one!

magnoliaamber said...

Sara dear, you are lucky if you live in a place where you are allowed to do that.

I wanted to spread the magic and the place where I live is trying (sometimes too hard) to prevent me to do so.

:(

But it's good to see the list, like having a fairy reminding you about the good thing in life.

:)

Like you!
