Few Words Wednesday: Wishing and Hoping

Summer ended and fall began with the most beautiful weather our region of Texas has seen - and felt - in nearly five months. Blue skies, a light breeze, low humidity, high temperatures near 80 degrees, and low temperatures near 70 degrees combined to create the kind of nearly-perfect days people move to Texas to experience. We spent as much time as possible outside, not just because we'd missed this kind of weather, but because we knew it wouldn't the high temperature should climb back into the 90's.

My homesickness sets in at the beginning of every September. And when fall finally arrives, my developing passion for our current state dwindles and I find myself wishing that clicking my heels together and repeating, "there's no place like home" three times would somehow transport me back to the land of brisk mornings, sweaters and jeans, stunning colors, falling leaves, pumpkin patches, and apple orchards. 

So today's pictures are of fall in the cities I've called home. I can't take credit for the first group, but the second group is all mine. (I probably shouldn't willingly take credit for the quality of the photos in the second group, but I will take credit for the adorableness of the little ones in those photos.)
Autumn in Michigan 

Autumn in Iowa

Autumn in Wisconsin

Playing in the Leaves 

Visiting the Pumpkin Patch

Picking Apples

 And the Donuts...Oh, the Donuts.

I wish there were a way for even just a little bit of fall to make its way down here. You know, before January.
