It’s a new year! (I’m pagan so Halloween is our new year). My year of Happy is finished!
I plan on continuing to post but it will be on an if and when basis, instead of daily (I think you’ve had enough of my ramblings for a while!)
Happy new year everyone 🎉
Lanterns at Samhain to remember my loved ones past – especially my sister and daughter.
It’s Samhain! Yeah!
I’m particularly excited this year as I’m so pleased to say goodbye to the old year and welcome a new one. It’s been an incredibly challenging year!
So today you will find me snuggled up with my cozy fire, candles, incense, fairy lights and lanterns, enjoying time with family.
We will enjoy a pumpkin feast – pumpkin 🎃 soup, pumpkin 🎃 and ricotta cannelloni and a salted caramel creme brûlée with a pumpkin sauce and pumpkin seed brittle. All of which my eldest son is making!
Then we will write our wishes onto paper and throw it into the fire to be taken into the sky and light lanterns to remember those who have left us.
The serious things done, it’s time for games to enjoy and some drinking and general fun.
Samhain only comes once a year so we need to make the most of it!
It’s time to celebrate 🎉
And my wishes??? For peace and contentment – that’s all I want as it’s been a testing year!
A chilly sunny frosty morning, meant a cozy fire for the first time this year. I love snuggling up with a fire blazing, it’s so atmospheric.
I’ve saved the full effect of fairy lights, candles, incense and lanterns until our Halloween party tomorrow. But for that I’ll be having the lot!
I adore this time of year, it feels so cozy snuggled up surrounded by everything. It might be freezing outside but I’m warm and enjoying the hygge.
Each season has its pros, but to me this is the best. The only downside is it causes increased pain so I have to wrap up very well or I just avoid going out altogether. Sometimes it’s just not worth it! I’d rather snuggle up reading feel good books and stay nice and warm.
I will be tempted to brave the cold for those festive markets and craft fairs though 😉. Now that wins hands down!
What’s your favourite thing for atmosphere?
My fire, candles and fairy lights 😁
Me and my best bud make a great team!
Sunshine – especially seeing the sunrise or sunset.
Getting out and having fun makes me thankful 🙏
For me my heat wrap teddy brings me comfort. His weight helps and he’s so soft. Perfect!
Something that made you smile!
Umbrellas in Liverpool 😁
