20 Weeks

Today is the 20th day of Inktober and I'm 20 weeks this week (half-way mark!).  I wasn't sure if I could draw every day but so far so good and I want to continue past October.  It is such a good practice to maintain.

I'm still kicking this cold, turned sinus infection, turned cold again.  I bought some probiotics (kefir and yogurt), hoping those help.  No way am I doing sauerkraut.  This was the first year we couldn't make it out to the mountains to see the leaves change but there are plenty here to look at too.

The colors are gorgeous, the leaves fall much too quickly.

Falling in love.

IMG_8830 I'm falling for photography again.  Capturing frozen moments has always been what draws me to taking photos.

Documenting our lives and now watching this little mouse grow up.

The leaves are so beautiful and they are falling everywhere.  Mountains of leaves and baby had a blast running through them this weekend.

One of Addy's favorite parts of the day is going for a walk with Grandpa.

Then we came home to a sky full of fog.  It is so cozy right now, perfect weather for lighting a candle and snuggling up.

I have a love/hate relationship with fall.  No doubt it is beautiful but it also means we will have nothing but branches until around May.  Can't deny those gorgeous colors though.  Here are some pics of Golden Gate Canyon State Park, our neighborhood and my parent's backyard. IMG_8684
