the first leaf

our backyard

I officially saw my first orange leaf yesterday (in our backyard.)

You know what that means ... FALL IS COMING.

I couldn't be more excited.

Freeland & I sat on the porch today during lunch and discussed pumpkin spice lattes, cool weather, camping, Halloween, and everything else that comes with it.

So hurry up and get here!!


  1. LONG way off here in LA-still HOT! Only brown leaves are from draught!

  2. This post makes me want to cry. My husband and I moved from the East Coast (Philly and upstate NY) where the leaves turn amazing colors to Denver CO. We heard they don't have great fall colors here and I'm so sad about that....

  3. Girl, with it being 100 (still!!) here in Texas it's hard to fathom. But I LOVE the Fall and am looking forward to football, holidays and the familiar smell of my pumpkin spice candles!

    By the way, I found your blog through Abby Lea's and wanted to say hello!!

  4. I'm waiting to start making my fall cupcakes again - Pumpkin cupcakes and Maple Spice cupcakes - YUM!

  5. You're getting so great at photography, Brooke! Please make it a habit of sharing your Fall glories with us. I have a cinnamon spice candle under my bed and I'm waiting for the day to bring it out..
