The Fall by Christina de Vries

I was thinking about fall…

Fall is a special time for book lovers like myself and for the last couple of days I’ve been walking to and from work, thinking about why I love this season as much as I do. So I ended up making a list.

The Colours


There’s something so incredibly beautiful about the world around us changing into red, yellow and brown tones. I love all the seasons, but fall is definitely the one the prettiest of them all.

Even though the temperature drops, the new beauty in my surroundings puts the warmth back in me.

Warm Clothes


On Sunday I packed away summer dresses and made room for knitted sweaters and warm skirts. The fact that I can get warm and comfy when I’m LEAVING the house is pure perfection in my mind!

And I’m very lucky to have a mom that loves to knit and knits beautiful clothes (like my Marius-sweater in the picture) so I get to have a personal and lovely piece of my family close to me whenever I want 🙂

Hot Beverages


I drink coffee (and other hot beverages) all year round, but my hot beverage intake increases when the temperature drops for sure!

On the go or at home in my pyjamas. Any time is a perfect time for a hot cup of something!

Sunsets and Darkness


Winter depression? Never had it! I love the dark time of the year. It’s the time to explore in the dark, read good books, write good books and be creative in general.

Every year, the darkness brings an extra dose of creativity my way and I think that’s one of the main things that makes fall the perfect time of year for me, only topped by Christmas, because…. Christmas!!


Just a few of the things that make me happy about fall! There’s so many more, and I would love to hear yours!

Have a wonderful and creative fall!!

Autumn – Time to Read

Autumn is here and it is the perfect season for reading! All those rainy days and the cold weather is a perfect excuse to snuggle up under the cover and enjoy a good book (many good books)!!

I would say the combination of Sweet Free Books and Kindle fits perfectly into this!!

Click on the Kindle logo underneath to download Kindle to your phone, tablet or computer.

It’s free and it’s so easy to use!


I’ve talked about Sweet Free Books in earlier posts as well, but if you’re new to the site or just forgot about it, here’s a reminder.

Every day they will send you an email with all of the free books that are available for your Kindle or Nook.

You choose the genre and they’ll tell you what’s for free! I have downloaded so many free books through this site and I highly recommend it!

The Fall

The wind has gotten a little colder

A new range of colors comes out play

As the year grows a little older

Orange, yellow and red fills up the day


Raindrops gently kisses your face

As the wind invites to another dance

You meet again for days and days

Such a perfect post-summer romance


The darkness brings a lot of candlelight

Surrounds you while you’re under the cover

As the day so early goes on to night

Embrace the time with your late year lover


Soon it will be Winter’s time to shine

Enjoy this now before it’s too late

So have another cup of hot tea or glass of wine

And accept the Fall’s offer of a lovely long date
