When the Fall colors found me...

Or was it that I found them...
Bench
I know I've been missing in action. As I said before there's a lot going on, but see, I haven't forgotten you all. I just start drafts and then have to go do something else. Before you know it, I've got five drafts, none of them are even half done, and it's been ten days since the last time I posted.

I feel like the leaf in the last picture here; I've yellowed, fallen off the tree and am now slowly drying and waiting to become mulch.
Fall leaves the end
My saving grace is the little one.

Today was my little girl's 8-month birthday. I love that she was born on the spring solstice 8 months ago (even if the solstice doesn't technically happen on the 21st every year, must one really be punctilious about such things?...) I love it partially because the spring solstice is also the Persian New Year, so my little half-Persian noodle was a brand new everything born on the New Year. Perfect.
Fall to Winter with Baby
Anyway, I'm thinking of that because since I found the fall colors, it really feels like fall now, but winter is already on its way since I found them very late this year, and these are some of the last leaves up on the trees right now. Soon it will be her 9-month birthday and we'll move technically from fall into winter, and then it will be the Persian New Year again and she'll be a year old. Time really does not just run but gallops away from you.

Hopefully there are a few sunset moments such as this one left before the winter gloom descends upon us. I will be back soon with more posts.

Happy eighth month anniversary to your little papoose. Yes, time does fly. :)
Your fall leaves pictures are so pretty. Love the colours, but of course, we don't have fall here.

Your photos really made me stop and appreciate fall. Here in NYC there is just a lot of dead looking sparse tree action happening. Not nearly as beautiful as where you are!

ps: "my little half-Persian noodle" << So cute. Those chubby cheeks!

I know what you mean about having several drafts started and then finding something else to do. (And I don't even have a little child!)

Beautiful photos. No wonder you got the "Good looking blog" award!

What gorgeous photos!

I just realized that I used to subscribe to your blog! I didn't realize it until you mentioned how old your baby is, but I think I unsubbed when the baby was born because my Google reader got busy and you were on a bit of a hiatus.. but I had come here from Good Things Catered (best gingerbread recipe ever).

Well, it's nice to come back for Haiti. xoxo

Ah, photos like this always make me wish I could transport myself up north for autumn. Florida just sort of skips everything but summer.
