Holding on to autumn.

The weather is taunting us with its fickleness.  Warm. Cold. Warm. Cold. 

Oh autumn, you are such a tease.

Every Friday for the past three weeks I have stepped outside my front door and snapped a photo of the ever-changing kaleidoscope of colors.  It is a marvel. As I roll out of the driveway each morning these past few days, the tires of my car go snap, crackle, and pop over thousands of fallen acorns.  Are the squirrels on strike, I wonder?  Will this be a mild winter so they could-care-less about gathering every last morsel?

I leave you with a time-lapse, of sorts, of my driveway’s personality these past few weeks.  The stark change in terrain and the exposure of the richness of the wood's beauty is inspiring to me.

Which makes me wonder.

What inspires you about autumn?  As you look out your own front door and view your changing landscape, how does it inspire you?

It inspires me to spend more time outdoors.

It inspires me to go for more leisurely drives with coffee in hand.

It inspires me to make soup.

It inspires me to have more casual get-togethers and long interesting conversations.

How does autumn inspire you?

Happy autumn, my friends.  

Let's make the most of it!

Eat well, my friends. Eat well.



  1. I dearly love autumn as well. Even though I'm a die-hard summer fan, autumn always takes a happy turn in my heart. I'm missing your sweet face. Definitely after Christmas, it's let's get together for lunch time.

    1. "a happy turn in my heart." Love that!

      Miss you, too. Yes, let's lunchy.

  2. Lyndi,
    This is beautiful. It inspires me to simply breathe. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you Jen! You just reminded me to do the same thing. :)

      Love reading your blog!

  3. Love the time lapse photos! Many a morning on driving out of my neighborhood I have wished I had my phone/camera with me to catch the autumn colors! Thanks for doing that for me. Although my driveway looks a bit different :)

    1. This year the colors were so gorgeous and then poof! They were gone!

      In fact, if someone were to ask what my favorite color was... I would say... autumn!

      Miss you.
