Shades of the Season: An Autumn Walk

Happy Friday Friends!

I am here today sharing a few photos from around our small Michigan town!

Have you been to Michigan in the Fall? I can’t imagine anything more beautiful.

Summers are pretty great too, but Fall allows you to slow down and take in the beauty around us… which I just love!

As we slow down in the Fall I often find myself in a more reflective mood. I have the time to think, plan and organize our life a little bit better than Summer allows.

I am more content with taking time to just be still. Whether that be by getting up earlier than everyone else each morning and starting my day with some quiet time or even going to bed earlier each night, I allow myself the extra time to slow down.

I feel like it is an essential part of the season.

Doing my best to stay with the rhythm of the season is important to me and I try to incorporate it in our family in all the little ways I can.

Getting out and enjoying the warmer days in the Fall is one of the ways we enjoy this season of the year. Letting some of the extra energy out before Winter forces us to really slow down is essential and our little guy really loves taking walks in our beautiful park.

The park has a beautiful walkway along the river. It is one of my most favorite places in town.

I was driving along and had an owl fly up in front of me. He perched himself in a tree next to the road long enough for me to get a few pictures. He was so pretty!

Fall Colors & A Foggy Morning

 

It has been foggy and rainy all week. I don’t mind it because it adds to the ambiance of Fall. It makes me want to make soup or stew and stay inside where it is cozy warm. Unfortunately the cold weather has also brought on a case of the sniffles for me, but hopefully with lots of rest it will pass quickly.
