When it’s dark outside and the fog gently lingers on the horizon, you know Autumn has finally arrived. The temperatures drop and one feels like enjoying cosy hours at home. Others admire the broad autumnal colour palette, the seasonal fruit and the crisp air in the morning. It doesn’t matter how you look at it but it feels like there is some sort of cheery mood around. It is for that reason that I decided to delve deeper into the things that make Autumn heiter. What makes your Autumn cheerful? Have you had a chance to think about it? Is it the rustling sound of leaves or the collecting of conkers and pinecones? Is it slow afternoons at home with your loved one? All those things certainly add to my Heiterkeit (cheerfulness) this season. When the hashtag #heiterautumn was introduced on Instagram a few weeks ago, fellow autumnalists gave input and explained what they associate with the theme. Here are the ten most popular suggestions. Hope they inspire you and infuse your day with beautiful heiter moments.
A heiter Autumn means…
1) …to sit in front of the fire with a cup of tea.
2) …to read a good book in candlelight.
3) …to have breakfast outside wrapped up in a blanket.
4) …large colourful scarves.
5) …woolen socks and warm feet.
6) …to chat with your best friend over a cup of hot chocolate.
7) …freshly baked apple crumble.
8) …warming soup.
9) …harvesting grapes.
10) …carving pumpkin faces.
