When September is approaching it always feels like a time to start fresh to me and I know it does for lots of my friends too. I think it’s partly innately built into us seeing as the new school year starts in September. After all those years it’s hard to drop habits or feelings I suppose, do you feel that way too? But seeing as I’m not heading back to school I do like the idea of September being a month to hit reset, a time of the year to reflect on what’s been and what’s to come in the months ahead as the seasons start to change.
Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, I always embrace the buying of new winter coats and jumpers and cosy socks with open arms. I’m looking forward to wrapping up warm for long walks in the forests fuelled by warm tea and followed by an afternoon curled up on the sofa with a warm blanket. At the end of August I can pretty much never resist buying some new stationary, I blame the ‘back to school campaigns’ but as you all know I’m a stationary obsessive through and through. So that is never going to change, plus you can never have too many notebooks right?!
This year has been an interesting one, I have been able to achieve some goals I set at the start of the year, one of those being to launch a newsletter, which you can sign up to here if you haven’t already. ‘Remember, Rewind & Reset’ is sent out on the last Saturday of every month and compiles some of my favourite articles that I’ve read, apps I’m loving, what I’ve been buying and accounts I love following and that inspire me. Another goal was to keep shooting film which I have been doing as regularly as possible which you may have seen through my 35mm Diaries series. I’m so glad I chose to purchase another film camera at the start of spring which you can check out more about in this previous post. I’m planning to set a few goals in September that I shall be striving to achieve by the end of the year. Will you be setting any new goals in September for the rest of the year?
The photos in today’s post were shot over the weekend back in Suffolk, and all the ones of me were taken by my gorgeous Mum. We found a perfect little apple tree full of cooking apples, and there was another with Braeburn apples (my Mum and I’s personal favourites) and a pear tree full of conference pears. There were so many that some of the branches and pears were touching the ground. I brought some of the apples and pears back with me to London and Ollie and I are planning to make a pie or crumble with them, the perfect autumnal dessert if you ask me. I’m looking forward to Autumn along with making the end of 2018 the best it can be.
