• Fall Photo Candy

    As I was searching for photos to add to my high school writing class’s fall e-newsletter, I came across some great photos that Andy took years ago. I thought I’d share them with you too!

    OK, so this one is first because it just took my breath away. I don’t think I appreciated these almond tree farm photos from our trip up to Visalia (back when we only had one child.) But now when I see this photo, I am so awestruck.


    How many pumpkin photos have I seen? But I just love this one!


    Just in case you need an idea for a pumpkin carving contest, this frog pumpkin was our award winner at a family event a few years back. Hello Froggy!


    I found that spectacular green pumpkin (and the two smaller pumpkins on top) at Underwood Family Farms. They always have amazing pumpkins to choose from. And so many fun things to do with the kids.


    Andy says he took these pictures years ago when he was on his way to work really early in the morning.


    This one is pretty too.


    Finally, here’s a fall photo that really makes me want to sit down with a mug of apple cider and read the classic novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley in front of the fireplace. Or listen to the Frankenstein audio book while I’m doing dishes, because that is more likely to happen.


    And just one more fall photo! Candles from our friends Jake and Annie’s wedding. Awww! Such a beautiful evening

    I hope you enjoy this wonderful fall season. We sure are glad the weather is cooling down here in Southern California!

    By the way … which photo was your favorite? Leave a comment and let me know you were here!
