Autumnal

Autumn is my FAVORITE season, and autumn in Oregon is an especially tasty treat for the senses.

I remember, as a girl, my mom talking to me about how much she loved autumn, and how it always made her feel as if something exciting was about to happen.

I remember cocking my head and concentrating to see if I felt it too.  Imagining myself as a mother, having fall babies perhaps? (I have planned two- Joseph and Samuel- for this very reason), and telling them about the anticipation in the air.

the tree is so beautiful!! I love fall colors. Unfortunately the color doesn't last long here as the leaves get cold an fall off the trees far too soon. But, I'm not complaining... there's no ... white stuff... right now so I'm good with that. :)
