The season of


My absolute favourite time of the year in Melbourne is Autumn. This city really turns on the amazing weather at this time of the year. We have many beautifully sunny days without the stifling heat. The kind of days where you get warmed up by sitting directly in the sun but as soon as you go in the shade you need a cardi, my idea of perfection.
This year Autumn reminds me of Lola, and probably for many years to come. I am ok with that, i am ok with the idea of my favourite time of the year reminding me of my daughter, the one that I can not reach out and hold. Instead I will look at the amazing colours of the leaves and think of her, I will feel the sun warming up my skin and think of her and as I reach for my cardi when there is a chill in the air, i will think of my sweet, little lola.
