so much.


Oh, this time of year is ... so much. So much beauty, so much change. So much to see, so much to balance. So much to look forward to, so much to get ready for. So much happiness, so much melancholy, so much sunshine, so much rain. Each season brings so much - we change our wardrobe, our activities, our day to day. Sometimes it is easy and sometimes it is...not so easy. So we tuck in, snuggle up, create traditions and rituals to help our passage to the next season go smoothly. To remind us, center us. We find comfort in remembering what it is that comes next, and soothe our bodies as they adjust to the light, the dark, the heat, the cold, the dry, the wet.







It's all so much. I love fall.

Beautiful photographs - especially your sweet baker- helper boy :0)

Autumn is intense, and it never seems to last long enough for me.
Owen is hoping for snow already!!

Hi, I love fall too, my favourite (short) season!! You take lots of nice pictures! Too bad the fall has passed without telling me here. Now winter had arrived instead.

Your writing and photos have so much beauty. I hope you're surviving that big storm your area is getting. It's all over the news, even here in Seattle.

This is stunning and so moving, Denise. I know these feelings. Last year I felt them strongly, this year is different for me though.

I am so inspired by your photography, always.

Love your words. And your pictures are always so gorgeous. I love fall too but I know that winter is just around the corner which I am not so much a fan of.
BTW - can this wind go away soon? Does this happen here every fall?

Such a beautiful post. I remember that feeling from when I lived where it got cold and snowy in the winter. I'm sure it is amplified greatly by having kids. I love the first photo and the one of the swing. Gorgeous!
