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

Before we even had the time to settle into summers glowing warmth it was gone, and all too soon autumn was upon us. Yet despite the bite in the air and the darker nights that blanket us, October brings with it a magic that is lacking in other seasons.

October is the month of pumpkin pie, hot chocolate brimming with fluffy marshmallows, of knitwear and of chilly walks amongst the fallen rusty leaves with those you love. It’s a time for refection and nostalgia, and with its coming it promises new beginnings.

As we kiss goodnight to the last of the hazy summer nights and welcome the starry winter that awaits us, consider this – autumn is natures last burst of greatness, its last gift of beauty before the world freezes over, only to be born again.
