a change in season

My favorite season is here, and hints of Autumn keep appearing everywhere I turn.  People who know me will know that I am completely obsessed with all things pumpkin (spice) related, but there are also so many other reasons I love this season.

Leaves changing their color for one; from green to golden, to deep red... But also Fall style, the air becoming cooler and crisper, making the adjustment from iced coffees to hot, lighting scented candles, adding spices to everything...

This season and all that comes with it brings to mind a word a Danish friend once taught me, one without any direct English translation- hygge.  Roughly translated, hygge could be said to mean 'coziness', but in reality the word carries so much more meaning than just that; denoting a specific state of mind in which contentment is key.

I will always associate Fall (followed by its transition into Winter) with this one word.

Recently, I moved over to New York from Ireland to start an internship in Brooklyn.  This blog has been extremely neglected and kept out of date for quite some time now, due to my being busy finishing up university the past few years, and now with my move back to the States.  

However, this move has inspired a new renewed passion for and interest in my blog and keeping it updated; to work harder at moving it in the direction which I feel my personal interests and passions have slowly been moving in and growing the last couple years.  

I am still as interested as ever in food and photography.  In fact, it is exactly those two things, both separate and combined, which has landed me right here in Brooklyn, as I undertake an internship in photography and food-styling with the wonderful vkrees.  

I plan on using this blog as a way in which to present my journey- here, and everywhere else to follow, through the various artistic spheres which attract me the most; namely food and photography, but also other forms such as style, travel, music and film.  

Some days I will write more, include recipes, general thoughts, recommendations etc, while other days my photographs will hopefully get across all I am trying to say, no words needed.  This feels new again for me so it will be a while before I get properly reacquainted with blogging, but I hope that some of you out there are still reading and interested- I would love to hear any suggestions also as regards what kind of posts you guys would like to see here!
