Beautiful Good idea for an autumn shoot. It makes me want to grab my favorite book and let the little one run around outside


I need to get back to reading more.  I have a book I'm reading to review, too.  I wondered why I was putting off reading a regular book, and when I went to my annual eye exam, I found out that the cataract on my left eye now needs to be dealt with.  I've decided to wait until I get back from my week with Emma and family.  I had the right one done a few years ago and it was very easy.


I'm looking forward to watching these trees change color!  Aren't they lovely?  This photo is from three years ago!  How I love these trees!


For now I'll leave you with this quote - 

My birth time of year. I just wish winter didn't follow so closely behind.

    Sadly we dont get the intensity of colour in the leaves that you seem to, but they are certainly beginning to change now.
