Why I Love Fall

I've mentioned before that fall is my favorite season.  Fall didn't start out so well for us, in fact it started late and when it finally came it went from mid-80's one day to mid-50's the next.  With that big of a drop in temperature it was pretty chilly, but our real fall, the fall I look forward to every year has finally come.  I've noticed as I drive through town that the leaves are all starting to change and when I'm driving along the east side looking over the valley you can see all of the fall colors throughout the valley; it's so gorgeous.  The air has started to have that crisp feel to it as well and I've found myself wearing cozy sweaters and my favorite jeans the last couple of days.  Ahh... I love this weather.

Anyways, enough rambling.  We have a tree in our yard that I see every time I look out my kitchen window and I've been watching the leaves change for days now.  Then yesterday morning as I was getting Ella breakfast I noticed the colors were just right and the sun was hitting them perfectly.  Being the wanna-be-photographer that I am I rushed upstairs to throw on clothes (I can't be the neighbor who walks in the yard in their robe), ran downstairs, grabbed the camera and ran out the door while yelling at Ella to follow mommy.  I know she thinks I'm crazy.  Anyways, I was able to get some gorgeous shots of our side yard, but here are just a couple for your enjoyment.  Don't I have a pretty view?  I think this picture justifies my craziness.


  1. very pretty! our trees don't know it's fall yet so i wish i was up there enjoying your view.

  2. So are you telling me that we have 2 weeks until snow? That's usually how long Fall last around here. Guess I better get out and enjoy it!
