Waiting for Fall

The calendar says it's fall, but with temps still in the 80's here, my body isn't buying it. I'm pining for the crunch of leaves under my feet, bundling up in a sweater, spiced cider and warm soups. While I can't do anything about the leaves, or the temperature, little things can bring some fall into the house, even if the AC is running.

Changing things up around the house also gives me new things to photograph. Now that I'm focused on building my portfolio, I'm trying to take more photos every week- practice makes perfect right? A beautiful persimmon a friend at church gave us captured my attention yesterday. Isn't it lovely with all those leaves?

While it is still warm here, it's not 90 anymore, and that means using the oven again! I've been on a total pizza kick lately- I've made it 4 times in two weeks. In fact, I'm craving it right now! Last week we even had enough tomatoes from our plants to use them on a pizza- so good. 

How are you enjoying fall? Pumpkin patches and apple pie? Walks in the woods and curling up by the fire? Share your fall adventures in the comments- I'd love to live vicariously through you!
