Fall on the brain

It's about time I've embraced fall, right? Especially since it's practically winter (according to Starbucks and their red cups and pepperminty drinks...). As much as I cling to summer, I might be the saddest of all to see fall end...because once these gorgeous leaves fall, it's nothing but cold, short, dark days for a while.

We went to the zoo this weekend and it was a gorgeous fall day. 60 degrees without a cloud in the bright blue sky. Days like that make me almost want to change my tune about Fall not being my favorite season. Trees filled with vibrantly colored leaves that fall whimsically to the ground. A slight chill in the air with an occasional breeze, warmed by the sun's rays. Yet not a drop of sweat in sight.

On a related note, daylight savings time sucks. But surprisingly, it's not because I've been up at the crack of dawn with kids who won't sleep. My kids don't seem to have been affected AT ALL. In fact, we had to wake Lorelai up on Sunday morning to get to the zoo. Me on the other hand? I've been in a bit of a funk these past few days. Result of the early darkness? Maybe...

But before winter rears its ugly head, I'm going to enjoy the heck out of every colorful tree and mild day we're graced with.

And guess what? I got a pumpkin picture! It was just a decorative display at the zoo and not an actual pumpkin patch (obviously), but it's good enough to be my annual pumpkin picture I wanted so badly. :)

PS: an hour after I hit publish, I realized that maybe I should have used "autumn" in my post title so it didn't sound like I fell and injured my brain? Ha!


  1. Your trees are SO gorgeous!!
    I had to chuckle about that pumpkin picture. Glad you got one! :)
    P.S. Could Lorelai teach M a little something about sleeping in, please?

  2. So funny that fall is on your brain the day it turns winter here. We literally have no leaves left on the trees and it's been a snow/rain mess. Fall was too short. I am excited for Christmas though! Great photos btw!

    1. I SO don't envy your snow, girl! It's gorgeous to look at, for sure. But I'm happy to admire from afar as long as I can :) I mean, I do want one nice snow this year, but then I'm over it!

  3. I'm with Ariel. Our trees are super bare now, and I'm in the Xmas spirit! Love how different every place is. And your photography is fab!


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
