Snapped this picture on the sidewalk outside of mi casa the other day. I used it for day 3 of the December Photo Challenge that some friends and I are doing on Instagram. I could go on and on about my addiction to Instagram . . . but I digress . . anyway, if you are up for it, join us in the challenge! It’s a great way to push yourself to take different kinds of pictures and fun to see how everyone else does it. One of my favorite things about this time of the year is the changing of the leaves on the trees. It’s not quite the same here in Southern Cali as it is in other parts of the country, but I thank God for the glimpses of it that I do see!! Luckily I have 4 Birch trees on the side of my home. (at least I think they are Birch trees . . .) They go through a magnificent color change every year and the kids and I love to watch their progression from green, to red, orange to yellow and then brown every year. There is such beauty in transition!
