Often, pictures have a way of transporting us, or carrying us away to a dreamy place where there is a sense of wonder, charm, stillness. This year, I’m inspired by nature. I’m inspired by the changing leaves, fluffy clouds, warming fires, the slowing down and all that Mother Earth has to share with us. We just enjoyed two days of much needed rain (SoCal living means little rain) and we really just embraced the change. We watched, our newly planted winter garden receive a nice soaking and witnessed the plum tree shed it’s golden foliage and sprinkle down upon the ground. I really enjoy all these seasonal changes and they sure do put me in a merry spirit. May your days be merry and bright too!
