Last weekend I went camping with my family and was sooo looking forward to lovely, crisp fall weather. Unfortunately, it rained ALL weekend long. Total bummer. Since I love reading, I did get to read quite a few chapters of a new book I took with me. I believe a good book is always the perfect solution to a rainy day, or two, or three.
Right before leaving, I received a package in the mail with a brand new outfit I ordered. It is so perfect for Fall! I love the earthy colors of fall. They all seem to remind me of autumnal foods though; hot apple cider, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkins; deep red apples. Oh boy, I'm getting hungry now! Anywhoo, we decided to go for a walk in the woods since the sun had finally popped out from all the clouds. And, all though it was silly, I decided to wear my new outfit. I asked my family take some photos of me in it while we walked. I love the way it looks on me......it makes me feel really pretty. Isn't it funny how some outfits do that? I don't often feel that way but this one really does make me feel especially pretty!
While we were walking down one of the paths, I spotted the cutest little toadstool right in the middle of the path. It was sooo adorable! I wanted to pick it up but since I have read that you really shouldn't touch them unless you know if it's safe or not, I decided to just bend down for a closer look.
Next I saw some really brightly colored berries around the bottom of a tree and decided to climb through the thick ferns and brush to investigate it further.
When I got close I saw that it was some sort of pod that opened up to reveal the most beautiful persimmon-orange colored seeds...I was so amazed at the colors! Aren't' they beautiful??
So, in the end, despite all the rain, it was a good weekend of reading and exploring the beauty of nature that is often right in front of us and yet we miss it. Set aside some time this fall to take a walk and really notice all the amazing little things that grow along the path!
