Stopping to See the Leaves Change

IMG_0160I asked John if I missed fall last year because I seem overly struck by its beauty this year. Without hesitation, he reminded in one word why I was too busy to fully appreciate it last year: Thesis.

How quickly I forgot that life consuming 70-pager.

This year, I’m soaking up the scenery. With a quiet weekend before some November travels begin, John and I had our routine coffee date from our own front porch today. After three days of parent/teacher conferences, I wanted nothing more than to lose myself outside in the sunlight. The sweet taste of pumpkin syrup in my blonde roast reminded me that today’s 70 degree weather won’t stick around long.

So, I’ll double my appreciation for the red, orange, and yellow this year and overcompensate for last year’s loss.
