Weekend Reading

Friday, November 1st, 2013

I took a walk with my neighbor yesterday, it’s a weekly ritual of ours. Around the corner from our homes is this beautiful tree filled with autumn colors, I had to return to capture it! We’ve enjoyed the most amazing weather here for weeks, blue skies and warm afternoons with this great show of autumn color, I don’t ever want it to end.
