10 Simple Pleasures To Enjoy This Autumn

Ten simple pleasures to enjoy this autumn

Autumn is a season of great contrasts and changes. The trees change from shades of green to hues of gold and bronze. Days get shorter and cooler so we tend to hunker down and spend more time indoors.

While the onset of winter can sometimes make us feel  a bit down, the season also brings its own distinctive joys and a feeling of cosiness. So here is a list of some of the simple pleasures to enjoy this autumn.

Not only are cupcakes a crowd-pleaser, they are also super easy to make. There is an endless possibility of delicious autumn flavors – gingerbread, pumpkin, carrot – to name a few. But my favorite would have to be apple cinnamon.

These cupcakes paired with yummy cream cheese buttercream make such a perfect fall treat!

Fall has arrived! It’s the perfect time to get cozy and start baking. The aroma of baked pumpkin and spices is pure Autumn bliss. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy the crisper weather than sitting down with a nice hot cup of coffee or tea and a warm, out-of-the-oven fresh scone.
