It seemed to happen all at once, this colour and coolness. My husband and I had patio beers with some friends on Saturday, and barbecued in our backyard with other friends on Sunday, and now this. It seems cliché to be this excited for this particular month and the season it shows off so well. But really, fall is the most Me the world ever is.

I’m especially excited to experience these changes in a new city. I’ve never seen it in full colour, and I’ve been looking forward to it all year.

Some signs of fall from inside my home: A glut of apples, my Mummu’s wool socks, waking up in the dark, and a pull towards slow, reflective books like Tove Jansson’s Fair Play.

    The leaves seem to be wonderful in your area, I hope you’ll publish fall pictures! This is aso my favourite season and I find exciting to see all these seasonal details popping one after the other (falling leaves, blushing trees, all sorts of weird pumpkin-like squashes on the market, fresh mushrooms & walnuts, the sun becoming lower in the sky, giving a more golden light…). Right now the weather is unsually warm though here, so it’s quite hard to completely dive into the season :)

      I will definitely publish fall pictures – maybe this weekend! Oh I love that low fall light. I hope your weather allows you to dive into the season soon (actually, today and tomorrow are going to be warmer than usual here too – boo)!

    Fair Play is one of my favorites. Enjoy.
