on the cusp

 fall is just around the corner & it’s this week’s photo thursday prompt over at CaC.

i look forward to the coming of  early autumn.  i love  this time of year the best because the heat of summer relents to the coolness of fall, for starters.  the trees’  foliage start to change to  brilliant hues,  which never fail to amaze &  delight the senses. fall12.jpg

 i like to hear the “crunch” underfoot as i hike along on a wooded trail.

or as this>>> happening upon a  country fair , which revels in all of autumn’s glory & splendor. fall10.jpgfall61.jpg

 things start slowing down in the fall,  in preparation  for the coming winter months ahead,

it’s almost as though nature is  saying, “come on & enjoy the outdoors while you can.  because before you know it, winter’s  frost will be here & it will be time to go indoors’.

for me, this time is especially favorable because the dh & i were married in early september…on the cusp of autumn.

every year at this time, i become terribly nostalgic and sentimental.  our wedding day was one of the most beautiful & cherished moments in my life.   how fortunate that i have autumn to blissfully remind me  of that very special day.
