While we were in Chicago this weekend, I was amazed to see the beautiful autumn weather around me. I have to say, autumn is my favorite season (followed closely by winter.) I love feeling the cool breeze, seeing the beautiful gold and red tones on trees, and finally being able to wear LONGER sleeves. The weather reminds me of being in college, walking to class wearing my gloves and drinking a warm yummy treat. It reminds me of Ian and I dating… walking on campus at A&M, going out for dinner and a movie, sometimes the occasional rainy day that kept us inside… My thoughts are endless.
I just HAD TO take a picture of this tree. It is beautiful. I decided to take a few leaves from the trees there and make a collage to remember our trip by. I will just press them for a while and place them in a frame to display. I think its a cool souvenier.
I took this other picture while we were driving. If you look closely, you can see that it is raining leaves! Chicago really was windy, and the wind blew leaves off of the trees. It is awesome to see the beauty of God’s creation. I tell Ian that when we are at a beach or in the snow, I like to look around me and think about how beautiful everything that God created is. This was another example of that beauty.
I’m hoping to see a little bit of autumn here in Texas soon.Â I won’t be keeping my fingers crossed though.Â 😉
