My month in photos – September

Let’s start with the beautiful transition we’re having from Summer to Autumn. I am LOVING the hues of orange, blue skies and the piles of leaves scattered on the pavements. Though, I’m kind of done with the humid, sweaty journey to work! Shouldn’t it be cold already? We had a couple of real cold days at the end of August – scarf wearing days!!! – and I can’t wait for…

An A-Z of things to get excited about
