Autumn!

Autumn is my all time favorite season. Weather-wise, food-wise, clothing-wise. It’s just…the best. So here are some pictures to celebrate the season.

Getting cold in the house. Time to wear hats and coats during school.

Which also means it’s time for fires in the fireplace!

Time for leaf-raking and rake wars.

And hiking. The above are from the AT on Mt. Greylock in Massachusetts. Dear Husband and I hiked there a couple of weeks ago as a birthday present to me.

God gives us autumn and it’s beauty before the chill dreariness of winter. One last burst of color and majesty before all dies, sleeps, to rise again in spring. Praise be to God for the seasons. For such clear markers of the year. For such vivid images of birth, life, death and resurrection.
