All Around Us

October is probably my favorite. I have so many good memories of it as a kid, partly because my birthday was four days before Halloween (ahem), but also because it was predictable: you knew there'd be pumpkins, leaves covering the lawn (and a lot of darn raking on our tree-lined street), visits to the apple orchard, and the short-lived excitement of pulling out coats and boots again.

We're visiting my parents this weekend, so I'm looking forward to some of that childhood familiarity. In the meantime, these are a few scenes around us lately...fall is in full swing. Have a great weekend.

Fall, it is sad that I only have few memories that had to do with fall...

You had me at the first photo. Just beautiful...
Also, is that a tin of Chinese tea? Because it looks awfully similar to what I've been drinking for the past month...
