The title of this post is not meant to be a reflection of the dumpster fire that is our world right now, but, if the shoe fits...
No, the title of the post is meant to refer to the amazing color that we have been experiencing this fall season, despite the fact that the color was late in arriving. That tardiness has been excused, thanks to the vibrance of the color and the lengthy period in which the leaves have graced the trees. There is still plenty of foliage on the branches, despite the carpet of fallen leaves, covering lawns and walkways.
One of my favorite things to do is to take walks in the fall; the sound of crunching leaves is soothing to my soul, as is the unique smell of the dry leaf dust, as they slowly disintegrate into compost for the spring grass.
The late color also means that the window for autumn photography has been open for an extended period of time, which is why we were able to accommodate a family photo session for Anthony and Bethany, despite being rained out the first weekend that we were scheduled.
