Ella and I went out and collected some fun fall foliage. She even helped me lay them out to snap a few pictures.
I am a Fall colors girl. I love the warm tones. When I was in college in Utah, one of my very favorite things to do was to drive through a nearby mountain canyon in the Fall. The colors took my breath away every single time.
Ella kept calling all of our little finds "preeeeetty floweeees," which is her word for flowers.
And so they are, Autumn's flowers.
Pretty soon they will be gone and replaced with the beautiful snow. Sometimes I feel a little melancholy during the changing of the seasons. There are some moments that are far too fleeting.
Like holding my little girl's hand as we search for treasures.
But I guess that is what makes each season so special.
