  1. I love the first few days of autumn too! (And now i'm craving guacamole!) Cute post!

    1. Those days are so beautiful. And it is one of the things I only got to experience in Europe... in Mexico many trees stay green the whole year, or they lose some leaves, but they never turn fully yellow-orange-red-brown and then go empty.

      You should make some guacamole... or get an avocado and eat it on toast, pure bliss!

  2. YAY for Geminis! lol... And yes, those first few days of Autumn are awesome :D

    1. Geminis for the win :) I particularly love the warmth of those Autumn days, over here, early September, and sometimes 'til October some sun is kind of guaranteed.


I love your comments, let's talk .
