there's something about fall that reaches deep inside and nourishes a deep part of my heart. maybe it's the changing of the season, the anticipation of the hibernation of the winter months ahead, the array of gorgeous colors, the crispness of the air...i do not really know. but i know it feels like taking a looooooong deep breath after a difficult day.
this weekend amplified that feeling more as we went up into the forest and took that all in. it was a few days with new friends, where conversations lingered, and hikes meandered along streams and across bridges suspended in mid-air. it was a beautiful break of the everyday routines.
