Autumn is upon us πŸ‚

Today brings about the first day of fall – it’s the Autumnal Equinox and I couldn’t be happier! This time of year feels like a chance to approach the season with a fresh pair of eyes as the crisp wind rolls in and the leaves start to turn. Since moving to California I have started to fully embrace the seasons – something that doesn’t always seem possible back home in the U.K due to the unpredictable weather.

I’ve been wanting to attempt a lavender tea latte for a while, and today seemed like the perfect day to give it a go. I used a recipe from The First Mess.

Here’s the recipe:Β Lemon and Lavender Tea Latte

Other things that caught my attention this week:

  • Carrot ginger muffins (I switched up the carrot for apple)
  • I finally got round to finishingΒ AtonementΒ this week – Ian McEwan’s writing style gripped me and I can’t wait to discover more from him
  • Snow by Angus & Julia Stone – ‘Big Jet Plane’ was on repeat back in 2010 and nothing has changed for me with their new album –Β Oakwood, Snow, and Nothing Else are my current favorites

What have you been enjoying books/music/food wise this week? I’d love to know!
