In recent years, I’ve begun to think of autumn as “berry season.” So many of the bushes and trees that we pass on our walks come to life in September with bundles of the most gorgeous, juicy berries in all colors.

I took this set of photographs on one of our early morning walks a couple of weeks ago. At that time, signs of autumn were just beginning to show up. It’s incredible how much has changed in two short weeks. We’ve had our first few autumn rainstorms and with them the season is now here in force. It won’t be long and the full autumn blaze of October will be upon us.

These days I feel the constant weight of time, and how quickly it moves, on my shoulders. It’s incredible and heartbreaking at once. I find that the best way to slow the passage of time, is to be fully present. Enjoy all of the little things. Savor the precious moments, even if they don’t seem special now, because one day — sooner than you think — you’ll miss them.

I recently stumbled across an old, favorite quote of mine. It comes from the end of the movie, Hope Floats. I’ll leave it here for you, a little Monday morning inspiration.

“Beginnings are usually scary, endings are usually sad. But it’s what’s in the middle that counts. So when you find yourself at the beginning, just give hope a chance to float up. And it will.”

    1. Yesterday was the first day that the babies and I had to wear light jackets during our morning walk. It’s definitely coming! 🍂🍁
