It’s rather ironic that Beth mentioned my blog header in her comment on the last post, because I just updated it to reflect the autumn season we are enjoying. :-)
Autumn is a season I never really experienced in Peru, and definitely enjoyed my first October in Indiana. My favorite memory is going to Melissa’s house for fall break, and hiking the Appalachian trail in the mountains of central Pennsylvania. I had a lot of fun scrapbooking that trip, trying to catch the beauty of the world around us.
I remember once finding a gorgeous yellow/gold leaf on the ground by Gerig my junior year. I kept for quite a while, and I even scanned it into the computer because I was so amazed by the colors. Much as I complain about the cold, I also enjoy the crispness in the air and the changing of seasons. I like pumpkins and Fall Festivals and bonfires and all those other things autumn brings.
I mostly love the autumn colors. I think those colors suit my personality and my hair color/skin tone (according to the book Color Me Beautiful, by Carole Jackson). I love designing with an autumn color palette, and I love the shapes of leaves and acorns. Okay I’m going to stop before everyone calls me crazy.
As we head into November and look forward to Thanksgiving, I am glad that I have the pleasure of experiencing God’s awesomeness through nature and the seasons around us.
