colors of autumn + week reflection

Viewing my Instagram account, the one thing you may notice is how hues of red and orange have taken over the past few weeks. While inadvertent, this happy accident reflects the colors of the season and why I adore fall. I promise I didn’t choose my current book based on its cover colors, that was just another happy accident. With wind in the forecast for the next few days, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that there will still be some fall colors left to enjoy for a few more weeks. But, just in case, I plan to spend as much as time as possible outdoors, taking care to pause more often and really enjoy mother nature’s annual fleeting gift.

“Forgiveness. The ability to forgive oneself. Stop here for a few breaths and think about this because it is the key to making art, and very possibly the key to finding any semblance of happiness in life.” ~Ann Patchett, This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage
