A Brisk Welcome

The leaves finally changed the other day. They had changed here and there, but a cold front came through and BAM- Color was everywhere!

As I was driving home, I could barely catch my breath. I felt like the scenery was knocking the wind right out of me.

So I grabbed my camera and headed to some of my favorite spots, spots that are just moments away from my house. THIS is why I'm obsessed with where I live.

Stunning.

Majestic.

Breathtaking.

This is where I spent so many childhood afternoons. Riding my bike to the candy store, stopping here on the way home, playing in the water, then riding home to make mac n cheese.

I came home with flushed cheeks and the smell of cold in my hair. And I couldn't have picked a better way to spend my Fall afternoon.

no kidding eh g?
i mean, it's so truly beautiful. when i see scenes like that it all just feels so amazing...and i feel so small, and sometimes a little bit sad but i don't know why. maybe because it's just so expansive - the world is so much bigger than me and i sometimes forget that...

Stesha Jordan said...
