Happy First Day of Fall

“How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.” ~ John Burroughs

Although summer (and sun and warm temperatures) is my favourite time of year… there is something special about fall and the colours of the leaves as they say good-bye until spring. Of course, I do wish we could skip winter altogether.

This quote by John Burroughs speaks to me as I realize I am growing old. Maybe only closer to middle age; but the gray hairs remind me I am no longer a young woman. So it’s time to remember the leaf – full of light and colour regardless of the age on my passport.

Smiles,

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” ~ Albert Camus 🍁 🍁 🍁

Such a pretty walk today in Port Coquitlam with the beautiful leaves everywhere. It actually did look like spring.

Happy First Day of Fall. Here’s to a season of pumpkin spice, crunchy leaves, sweaters and comfort food.

This is so true… Yesterday we were in a parking lot, when I noticed the beautiful view just to my left. After taking a quick photo, I said a quick thank-you for the many blessings in my life, including living in my little corner of the world. 🌎

Happy Sunday πŸ’œ

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” ~ Marcus Aurelius

Looking forward to a fun summer afternoon adventure at the PNE with good friends.
