the fall was a busy season for us, with friends in town, baby showers, oh yeah, and jeff's surprise surgery. despite how hectic this season always is for us, it is important to spend some time out in the fall foilage. it is truly one of the most magical things, and i just can't not get out in it when it is practically out our back door. obviously, the time frame to which we can see it is short and dictated by the time and weather, so when they were turning, and we were busy, we got up early one morning so that we could make it happen this year. of course it was worth it, as it always is.
