Saturday morning mood. ✨

Anyone else love patches and puddles of light?

The maples are bare as bones now, but here is one last photographic homage to Autumn. It was a beautiful fall. 🍁
.
And now I turn my eyes toward winter. My kids are already praying for snow.

I love how the sun sinks this time of year, and the low light shines in as if to play with us. There may be less light this time of year, but the light that remains is my favorite. ✨

Good Friday morning.
.
All eyes are on Pennsylvania it seems. My eyes are on the November trees.
.
I’m tired. How are you?

The days are shorter and darker, and my garden is going to sleep, yet here is the prettiest rose I’ve picked all summer.
.
I live in one of the most divided states in a divided country. This election week will not be easy for many of us.
.
It’s tempting to reach for platitudes in moments like these. They’re convenient, but they’re bossy, too, telling us how we should feel.
.
This week I’m intending to feel what I feel and let others feel their feelings, too. This week I’ll finish planting a few hundred more bulbs (daffodils, tulips, crocus, Scilla, and more). Because what’s on the other side of this long, dark winter? Spring. Always spring.

And then the sun came out ...
.
I will always love pumpkins on the front steps, but I do love them more because we didn’t have front steps for more than a year until my husband built these brick ones by hand. In the moment, I am impatient. But after? I’m grateful. And for so much more than just the steps.
