We had a long day Saturday at a marching band festival (David's band won nine trophies!) so we both slept like rocks that night. The next morning I awoke and immediately was in a frenzy because I overslept about an hour and the chickens were still locked in their coop. I bolted outside to set them free, then came back in to feed the cats. I went back out after that to fill up the chickens' food and water, and stopped in my tracks.
Fall has arrived! While we were gone on Saturday, it was very windy and bright leaves had been blown off the trees, forming a blanket on the ground.
Seemingly overnight, so many of the leaves had turned gorgeous, deep shades of yellow and red.
When I came back inside, full of energy after getting my fill of fall color, I woke David up and excitedly said, "Look outside!" and he agreed it was gorgeous. I've always loved fall, but living out in the woods being surrounded by nature's beauty makes me love it even more.
Looking at the beautiful scenery right outside my door I couldn't help
but be overwhelmed with a deep feeling of gratitude that this is the
view I get to wake up to each morning. Sometimes I still think,
"Seriously? We get to live out here?!" I'm so very thankful that
we are living the life we imagined.
