The maples are so gorgeous this year. I love how the sunlight danced on the leaves. The reds and oranges and golds were stunning.
In the summer, the individual trees get lost in the sea of green; but, in the fall, each one stands out with it's unique color. After a hard day, takeout and a Redbox movie were necessary. Yes, I'm the crazy woman in the passenger seat of the car that you see around town snapping photos. These three were from the end of our street.
David told me about this Hobbit House that he found recently on the way home from the Post Office. I find that fascinating.
I love living in a place where the seasons change. I've always dreamed of New England. All of the books that I've read and photographs that I've seen have called to me. I knew that I had to, at least, visit. I had no idea that the paths that I would choose in my life would bring me here to live someday.
After almost four years, I have completely settled in here. I have friends and family that I enjoy spending time with. Every direction that I drive, there is something beautiful to see and photograph. I still dream of packing it all up and living in a van or a bus. Those dreams are vivid when the wind is blowing outside and the snow is falling. When I'm leaving my nice warm home and trudging through the snow in my work clothes and snow boots, they are constant. I think, if it were up to me, I would leave here after the first snow fall or Thanksgiving and head South. I would find a nice sandy beach and some warm water. I would enjoy ocean breezes and sunsets every day until the end of April when I would head back New England for Summer and Fall. Yeah, that would be the life.
Until that door opens, I will bloom where I'm planted and keep my eyes open for the beauty that surrounds me. Blessings to each of you.
Thanks for stopping by!
