autumn | bringing the outdoors in

Lately, I’ve been scavenging on our ravine walks, gathering fallen leaves, branches and acorns, snipping rose hips and dried grasses and laying them gently in a worn, cloth bag which bears the ravages of rose thorns. I find comfort in bringing nature indoors, being surrounded by elements that breathe calm into our home. There’s undeniable beauty in autumn, but it’s also a time of transition and with that come challenges we don’t always anticipate. The weekend was filled with ravine walks and a visit with friends on Saturday, a trek through the woods and paths leading to the Evergreen Brickworks on Sunday, too many cups of tea to be counted, and baking—my other cold weather comfort—in my new kitchen. Gluten-free lemon poppy seed muffins from this cookbook make weekend mornings hum an even better tune.

I hope you’re embracing transition in your small part of the world …
