Today’s post is by my friend, Kelly DeBie, goddess blogger over at DeBieHive. I “met” her in May and we became good writerly friends and then just good friends. She has four kids, loves to write and loves to shoot photos. She admits she’d been neglecting the latter and so I asked her to guest blog for me – as a photographer. She did and we, my friends, are the very lucky witnesses. Without further ado, here’s Kelly…
What Fall Means
When Molly first asked me to do a guest post for her, I was flattered. When she asked me to make it a photographic post with the theme she selected, I was ecstatic.
Fall has always been my favorite time of year, for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved the changing colors, the smell of the air, the sound of the leaves rustling. I can spend all day just marveling at the trees and sky this time of year.
Fall brings cups of hot tea and tiny marshmallows in cocoa. Soups and stews and everything pumpkin.
Since becoming a mother, Fall has meant apple picking and tractor riding. It’s meant countless hurried mornings as we rush to a soccer field somewhere. It’s meant months and months of planning and scheming to assemble our elaborate family costumes. We really are those people.
And we love every single second of it.
If you think Kelly’s impressive with a camera, you should read how she rocks the prose with a “pen.” Check out her writing at www.debiehive.blogspot.com.
Just….just thank you. Thank you for it all. xoxo
i’m smiling. if i had to courage to turn on my webcam you’d know how happy i am for you being happy. i’ll stop here because i don’t want to get all mushy, but you and LC and a couple other angels i have yet to actually meet have made a real nice “family” for me. 🙂 ❤
Oh….get all mushy. I am.
I had to go to vinyasa, but I dedicated my practice to you.
My favorite season and you’ve captured it beautifully. As a child of the south I longed for those cool mornings and blowing colorful leaves. Now that I am a northerner Autumn is everything I wanted it to be (though I could use a little less snow from time to time but that’s a whole other season). Great post, Kelly.
Thanks!!! I love it…and winter too. I’m strange though, and look forward to shoveling. 🙂
We were separated at birth.
Rowing…shoveling…. not that different I guess.
Hi Kelly O’S, thank you for the visit! I know you came to see what Ms. DeBie is up to, but I’m very glad you commented. I’ve been a silent lurker on your site, although I think I commented last week about something. Now I can’t remember. Maybe that wasn’t me, anyway, I think Kelly did a great job and I dare day the pumpkins and the soccer ball are my faves. Then there’s that one of the family in the corn maze…
Anyway, thank you. -Molly
These pictures made me so homesick. We don’t get fall here in New Mexico like other places do. There aren’t many trees with leaves that change color. I miss going to the pumpkin patch and cron mazes. Ms. DeBie is an excellent photogrpaher. I have to ask is there anything that woman cannot do???
Oh, you are so kind. 🙂 (and I can’t whistle….not even a little) LOL
Gorgeous photos, Kelly – your words combine to make this a rich autumn meditation. I can’t help but love fall, especially October (my birthday month!), for a good many of the reasons you list here. Thank you!!
