What is November Aesthetic?

According to, the word aesthetic means, “A particular theory or conception of beauty or art: a particular taste for or approach to what is pleasing to the senses and especially sight.” A November aesthetic is a seasonal gift.

Creating a Cozy Life Group

Since you found this article on the November Aesthetic Photo Challenge, I’m guessing you like all things cozy living. I created a Facebook called Creating a Cozy Life with over 65,000 like-minded souls.

It’s a group where share recipes, things that leave you in awe, and how to make your life just a little bit more snug. You can join here to be part of the virtual cozy cottage.

“November is the pearl-grey month, the changeling between warm crimson October and cold white December, the month when the leaves fall in slow drifting whirls, and the shapes of the trees are revealed, when the earth imperceptibly wakes, and stretches her bare limbs and displays her stubborn unconquerable strength before she settles uneasily into winter. November is secret and silent.”
