‘ A Sunday made of a little bit of warm coffee filled with autumn spices and delicate hayfields´
Sunday was a cozy day filled with a day of being in nature, in the outskirts of the city. While our men were doing some wood work outside, my sister in law and I decided to roam the hay fields, an opportunity to get some beautiful autumnal images. My nephew was running back and forth with Siena and we tried to capture some images in the midst of all the movement. My nephew is just the cutest, he almost reminds me of Kevin from Home Alone with this adorable knitted sweater.
We took a walk to a sweet nearby bakery, got some buns and croissants that we later enjoyed with a pot of autumn spiced coffee. Just as we set up a little table on the porch to admire the lake view, we felt the air get chillier and chiller. After a first bite of the almond bun, there was hale storm! We quickly snapped a few images and enjoyed the afternoon treat indoors.
The autumn coffee is super simple to make. While warming up the milk in a pot, add a bay leaf, star anise, cinnamon, cardamom and a little bit of nutmeg as it warms up. Once warm, pour over some coffee. As we sipped on our deliciously fragrant coffee, my nephew played with playdough and Siena was out like a light as we stepped inside. We had a cozy autumn Sunday to say the least.
