It has been a reminder to me all week to look for the beauty everywhere.
We celebrated my mother's birthday Wednesday night and I realized as we left the restaurant that I hadn't taken any pictures....I'm going to have to do better on that front. My parents moved closer to us three years ago. After living away from them for over twenty years, it has been a wonderful time together. I am cherishing every moment.
The week closed out with afternoon tea with my neighbor and friend. I chose to ignore all of the things needing my attention at home and we spent several hours just having "girl time". I believe it is so important for women (and men) to establish a network of friends. Afterward, we took a walk down the street to the college for some fall pictures.
This is one of my favorite trees in our whole town, but it wasn't quite at peak that day.
Ginkgo trees are absolutely amazing in the fall!
