Autumn days when the grass is jewelled…

I love Autumn and every year, when this season pulls up outside, I’m reminded of how incredibly beautiful it is. All those fallen, auburn leaves and the frost on the grass in the morning.

Dear Weekend: Crying over spilt coffee, a day at the farm, a first birthday, a roaring fire and a sunday roast.
