OK. I don't hate Fall. I hate shorter days. And I don't like all that brown+rust+orange, or scarecrows or bails of straw as decoration. I get it, though. There are many magical things about Fall that even I can appreciate... acorns and bright berries, the yellow and bright pink leaves (but not the brown and dark red ones), seed pods, breaking out the scarves and sweaters, hot apple cider and honeycrisp apples, crackly fires, cold noses, general snuggliness...
We went on a nature walk this morning- just down the street, and these were our treasures. Edward immediately made a game out of them, removing the berries from the branch and counting them, forward and backward. Funny how he turns everything into a game.
