living fall

here in the northeast last weekend, we got our first little taste of winter.  it wasn’t pretty.  cold, windy, snow, freezing rain, ice…blah.  so, when the weather made an abrupt change these past few days, i knew that we had to get out and really soak it in before winter comes back around and set up camp.  care to come along and crunch through the leaves with us?

an autumn walk

fall treasures

can you smell fall in the air?  that musty, crisp scent that makes me think of pumpkin pie, apple dumplings and coffee.  okay…now i’m hungry.  but really, it’s a comforting scent to me.  makes me think of snuggling under quilts in front of a fire with a plate of gingersnaps (there’s the food again!).

back to the bridge

as the girls and i made our way through the crunchy, carpeted woods and came upon the footbridge, something seemed familiar.  it has been a couple of years, and there were less leaves though.  i thought about how my life has changed in the past 2 years.  change can be tough, but this has been a good change, and i know that i’m heading in the right direction.

i couldn’t help but relate this autumn walk to our human walk.  we ventured out yesterday in hopes of soaking in the beautiful day…just to enjoy it while we still could.  we need to soak in every day as if it is our last…live it to its fullest and savor every last drop.

here’s hoping that you get out and soak in today. 🙂
