The Harvest Moon

With Summer days slowly ending, and the sunrise sleeping in a little longer, the trees are beginning to shed their brilliant greens to change into a warmer more golden glow and I am so looking forward to the change of season. 

Today’s inspiration comes from one of my most favorite photographers Yolandi Jacobsz, Loci Photography and styling team, The Nicolassi Brand and Bella Fiore.

Inspired by love, music and all the colours of the Harvest Moon, this is a story to delight your soul and warm your heart. 

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleeping
We could dream this night away
But there’s a full moon rising
Let’s go dancing in the light
We know where the music’s playing
Let’s go out and feel the night

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart
But now it’s getting late
And the moon is climbing high
I want to celebrate
See it shining in your eye

Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon
