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!
I want Autumn to be here so bad it hurts. Regardless of the fact that it is 95+ degrees outside,
I desire to be COZY.
I am voraciously craving all things warm, homey and wintry . . . slouchy sweaters, furry blankets, boots, fireplace logs & the smell of firewood, hot tea and cinnamon, fuzzy pillows, chunky scarves and candlelight. Autumn/Winter is my favorite time of year and I am awaiting that first cool wintry day with all the depths of my soul. . .
What’s your favorite time of year?
Btw, Happy Friday. Have a spectacular weekend! ☺
It is a sweltering 93 degrees today, but looking at this picture makes me want to throw on my cool weather gear!!! I can almost feel a hint of chill in the air!!!
Absolutely gorgeous. . . .
This image has some of my favorite colors in it, gold, rust, green, deep red & brown. I love the way it has managed to capture the warmth of Autumn’s colors, as well as the coolness that Autumn brings. (We can thank the almost-bare tree limbs and leaf-carpeted grass for that!) It totally exudes the essence of Fall, from the leaves on the ground to the sepia tint of the image . . . Not to mention how fantabulous Nykhor looks in that dress!!!!. . . . I LOVE IT!!!
