A single photo once a week.
To capture my emotions, to sum up the days.
To collect my thoughts and hold them in my hands.

Every Sunday, one photo.

On this Sunday: Cool autumn days, a small girl and her big dog.

The leaves have almost all fallen, our trees are empty and bare, and the ground is covered in a confetti of rich golden tones. When I look around our yard or the park where we play I see beauty. I see the colors of nature, so rich and full, like a freshly painted canvas that is quickly admired by all observers.

Like these tones of nature, our weekend was rich and full. We embraced every single moment and lived each hour to the fullest. We "seized the day" because we understand there are not many of these cool November days left. In fact, I can see December right around the corner. Peering through a sheer curtain, anxious to make her presence. And I am equally anxious to greet her with open arms.

We cuddled on the couch, fingers dipped in popcorn bowls, and watched the first Christmas movie of the season. We gave in to the wintery scents of vanilla and cookie dough and baked our own chocolate chip cookies. We raked the leaves into tall towers and watched them dance in skies as we jumped with full force. We made up games and played our favorites, like family tag and monkey in the middle. We spent time with good friends visiting from California. We ate way too much food and lazily laid around until our bellies felt better.

How was your weekend? What did the wind roll your way?
