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
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.
