I will be 33 in November.

33 for me carries a profound meaning of change this year. More so because in autumn, nature slows down as it prepares for a long winter — and so do I.

As an Autumn baby, I like to believe my love for the season is innate. There’s something about the misty, foggy, chilly fall mornings that inspires me to go inward and ponder on the wonders of life as I sip my coffee.

I see the Autumn season as a time for reflection. A time to cherish the warmth of the home, to listen to the wind whirling, and to be thankful.
