10 Things I Love About Autumn

Well, summer is over and it's now autumn. The seasons are very easy to work out as far as I'm concerned.

March, April, May - Spring
June, July, August  Summer
Sept, Oct, November Autumn
Dec, Jan, February - Winter

I love autumn. It's my favourite season of the year and here are 10 reasons why I love it so much.

  1. The beautiful autumnal colours of the leaves on the trees. I love the varying shades of greens, yellows, browns, oranges, bronzes, reds and pinks
  2. Thick homemade soups and fresh crusty bread. In particular Scotch Broth - there's nothing to beat it
  3. Frosty mornings
  4. Lighting the fire and the smell of the logs drying out in the log basket beside it
  5. Jumpers, knitted dresses and woolly tights
  6. Huge mugs of proper hot chocolate made with fresh vanilla, chilli flakes, whipped cream, marshmallows and a dash of brandy. (recipe to follow)
  7. Walking through carpets of fallen leaves in the woods with the dogs
  8. Curling up on the sofa on a grey afternoon to watch a film or read a good book in front of said fire with a warm fluffy blanket and, of course, a mug of hot chocolate
  9. Preparing for Christmas - I love Christmas
  10. Celebrating the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (Hallowe'en)
So there you have the 10 things I love about autumn. Please feel free to share some of the things you love about autumn in the comments section.

Until the next time,

Fall is the wonderful time of year, the trees here change colors and you can go for long walks without sweating!

Stop! It's Going Too Fast and I Want to Get Off!

Carousel Okay - I don't actually mean that I want things to stop so that I can get off because I'm having too much fun but, over the last few months, my life has become a daily whirlwind of new businesses, taking on new projects, building websites and building a brand and it's not showing any sign of slowing down. I have loved every minute of it so far but it has meant that so many other things in my life have had to be put on the back burner whilst all this has been going on, including Cupcakes and Cadenzas. It will all have been worth it in the long run but I just want to say thanks to everyone who has stuck around and not abandoned this blog and to say that I haven't forgotten about it or you. Why I love Cupcakes and Cadenzas so much and refuse to give up on it it is that it was the very first blog that I set up and is therefore my 'baby' as far as blogs go. I have several other blogs set up for various business ventures but Cupcakes and Cadenzas is

10 Things About Me You Would Never Know Unless I Told You
