Here's the Design Team:
This new set brings to me some of my favorite images associated with Fall.  I think I mentioned the apple orchard that we visited last Saturday.  It's about 5 minutes from my house.  I changed schools this year and now I travel 10 minutes "up river", past this farm, to my my new job.  On Wednesday morning, the sun was out and shining upon the hills.  They were filled with trees turning a variety of spectacular colors.  I was soooo present that morning and was struck by the beauty of the environment and the season!  I have the picture in my mind...I just wish I could show you.  Alas, I did not get my phone out to shoot the scene as I was driving.
Thanks for coming by today!  I hope your day is fabulous.
