It came as expected. With the first few yellow leaves, with the last warm night spent on the balcony, with the sudden change of weather. I waited all summer for my world to finally slow down – and it did. It was perfect. Autumn came in the most beautiful of ways; gentle, smiling, maybe a little bit shy.

This extremely hectic year is finally coming to an end – in my calendar, at least. I’m not even trying to imagine what the next one will bring.
