The Lovelies of Autumn

Some enjoy sunning in the toastiness of summer. Some find happiness in the crystalline structures of snow in winter. Others are enthralled with the fresh blooms of spring. I do enjoy all the differences of each season, but what I really love….is the beauty of autumn. It’s rather difficult to capture my love for autumn with letters and photos. But my hope is that you are able to understand and empathize in my delight of autumn after reading along.

the knowledge that I can start reading my “scary” TBR list that I’ve been planning since June👻📚

the idea of all things pumpkin spice (even though I do not enjoy the taste at all)🎃🤷🏼‍♀️

Favorites Friday ~ The Great British Baking Show

I can’t tell you the last time I did a Favorites Friday. Well…I guess I could because I could go look back in my blog archives. Okay…

*I’m not telling you the last time I did a Favorites Friday because I don’t want to take the time to go back and look.

So a favorite tv show of mine is The Great British Baking Show. If you haven’t heard of it, you should check it out! (netflix!) It’s absolutely delightful to watch! I don’t know half of the foods that they are instructed to make nor many of the ingredients they use….but it’s enjoyable to watch anyhow!

It’s so different than most of the American cooking shows, which is such a huge draw for my family! Why is it different you ask? Well, I shall tell you.

Mel and Sue. need I say more? they are hysterical and the puns are terribly fantastic. Mel’s glancing at the camera after a pun is priceless. the way they interact with the contestants just cracks me up

there’s no screaming, yelling, or angry tantrums from any of the contestants or any of the judges

hearing contestants say, repeatedly, “I tried it two or three times at home and it never really turned out the way I wanted it to”

the music that plays in the background is delightful!! it’s calming and soothing

no language whatsoever = family friendly

the contestants are actually nice and friendly with each other and with the judges. the contestants, often times, will help each other whenever they get into a jam

listening to everybody’s sass about the technical challenges

even if something doesn’t taste the greatest or look the greatest, the judges are tactful about it. not insulting or rude

the rewatchableness of the show. i can watch the same seasons and episodes multiple times and i’m not bored with it

the scenery and nature around The Tent is absolutely gorgeous. the flowers and trees are lovely. the little black sheep and the fluttering birds just add something special to the show

listening to everyone talk. again, need I say more? the accents are to die for

I’m sure I could go on for quite some time about The Great British Baking Show, but this will suffice for now 😉

Have you ever seen the show or do you have a show that makes you oh so happy?
