One of the best things about having a camera phone is that you can capture little unplanned moments throughout your day, whether it's the color of changing leaves, the way sun shines through the trees, or the design carefully drawn on the foam of a freshly-made latte. This Birdy's favorite season is autumn, without question. And we're in the thick of it, so I'm enjoying every fleeting moment of it when I can. And maybe that's one of the reasons I love fall so much -- it feels like a fast moving transition into winter, where we won't see bright colors for a while, so you take the time to appreciate the sights, sounds and smells of the year as it wanes into its final days.
Some of my favorite fall things include:
Pumpkin spice-everything (lattes, pies, bread, the works!)
No matter how gray the skies are, the color of fall leaves make the day bright
The farmers markets are full of harvest favorites like squash, corn and apples
Tis the season for scaves, coats and jackets
The air feels crisp, cool and clean -- the right way to start the morning
So, what about you? What's your favorite thing about this time of year?
