I love fall. I love the way the sun shines through the yellow leaves and how you can wear a pretty white sweater and not get too hot.
I love the smell of apple pie and cinnamon streusel muffins (even though I can't eat any of it.)
I love the way the crisp air makes you feel alive.
But the one thing I don't love is saying goodbye to pink.
I used to think that as soon as fall arrived, I could no longer fill my life with my favorite color. For some reason, I thought it had to be reds, oranges, and browns for the win.
But then one day I woke up and thought "I can wear whatever I want and decorate however I want." I don't have to fill my space with bright orange pumpkins and black bats if I don't want to.
Ever since then I have kept pink in my life all throughout the entire year and it has made me so happy. There is just something about that color that always lifts my spirits.
And today I was feeling a little gloomy so I got in the car, drove to the local florist and asked for some pink peonies. They didn't have any, but they did have these beautiful roses that look a lot like peonies.
Then I went straight to the park and took a bunch of still life photos.
The beautiful shades of pink looked stunning against the yellow and brown leaves (although the leaves read as mostly green in the photos, but whatever.)
Pink roses in October. That feels like joy to me.
Below are a few shots you can download.
Lots of love,
