Hands up if you are a little excited about autumn? I love this changing of the leaves season, all the shades of red and orange, the cosy knits, the sipping of hot chocolate by the fire, collecting conkers and acorns, as well as that dreamy moment of switching out the summer candles for pumpkin spice and the like!!!
