    Forest Fairy Hiking Boots

    Hello, it’s me again! I know it’s been a while but I really hope you all had a beautiful summer filled with blooming flowers, singing birds and buzzing bees. My summer was one of the best I’ve had in many years and I will perhaps share that in the future. But a little part of me is jumping for joy that the magic of summer has slowly faded into our┬ánext season. AUTUMN! Yes! My favourite time of year. Our beautiful scarves, boots and warm sweaters have been patiently waiting in our closets for their chance to embrace the crisp autumn air. Finally it’s time for many evening strolls crunching over…
