Hello Autumn

 

I posted this new print in my Etsy shop last week and then forgot to post it here as well.  But since today is the first official day of autumn, it's the perfect time to share this new illustration with you!

If you know me at all or if you've been following my blog for a bit, you know that autumn is my favorite time of year.  Everything about it makes me giddy.  Seriously.  

I used to be more of a spring/summer kind of girl but in the last 4 or 5 years I've found that I much prefer autumn which is the best of all worlds.  It's a juxtaposition of chilly, grey, rainy days followed by days with brilliant blue skies to set off the brightly colored autumn leaves.  And I love it!  I love digging out my cardigans and stripey knee socks, taking the pup for long walks in the crunchy leaves, enjoying the crispness of the late autumn air and making homemade soups as often as I want because the weather is perfect for it.  

So yes, I'm thrilled that autumn has finally arrived after the ridiculously hot summer we've suffered through.  And I hope this new illustration helps capture a bit of the autumn-induced joy I'm feeling right now!  

What about you, which season is your favorite?  

PS--for all you early birds, holiday card sets are now available!
