{Living in the East} Westfield, New Jersey Nature Photographer

Matt and I really enjoyed the time we spent out in LA.  We talked about how we could see ourselves living there.  The only complaint I have is the weather/climate. I know, how could I complain about warm weather and sunny skies?  My issue is that it is like that all the time.  Day in and day out.  No variability.

One of the things I love the most about where I live is the change.  Changing seasons, changing weather, varying temps.  Its great.  I love seeing the sun in the summer, feeling the heat and seeing the warmth.  I love the snow, sleet, and slush in the winter.  I love the cold dry air, and how everything turns shades of gray and white.  I love the spring, as warmer air breezes through the days, and the plants and animals begin to wake up again.  But most of all, I love autumn (despite the fact that it is when my allergies become almost unbearable).  I love the smell of the earth after a good rain, I love the crisp cool air blowing in, I love the smell of burning wood and chimney smoke, the feel and sound of leaves and bark crunching under my feet, and having to layer my clothes.  I love the light. I love the fall holidays. I love football and popcorn and knitting and a sweater paired with skinny jeans and boots.

I love fall.

So there you have it.  The reason why I love where I live, and why I would never live further south than I do now.

I’m am participating in Tracey’s Picture Fall for the month of October. I hope to walk away with 31 images that represent what fall means to me.  With the help of her daily prompts and musings, it shouldn’t be too difficult.

    I love that you took pics of the rain drops! I have been looking at them on the leaves for days as I walk into work thinking about how badly I’d like to grab my camera and take pics but I have not had the time. Great minds think alike!
