Day 6 of 31 Days of Autumn

Shew! Posting daily is much harder than I thought it would be! The past two nights as soon as I got settled into bed I've remembered that I didn't post for that day! In my defense, I've been  under the weather, but yeah, well...weak defense. ;) LOL

I hope these beautiful photos and quotes inspire you today. 

“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face."

[The Autumnal]” 

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house."

[Notebook, Oct. 10, 1842]” 
― Nathaniel HawthorneThe American Notebooks

“Use what you have, use what the world gives you. Use the first day of fall: bright flame before winter's deadness; harvest; orange, gold, amber; cool nights and the smell of fire. Our tree-lined streets are set ablaze, our kitchens filled with the smells of nostalgia: apples bubbling into sauce, roasting squash, cinnamon, nutmeg, cider, warmth itself. The leaves as they spark into wild color just before they die are the world's oldest performance art, and everything we see is celebrating one last violently hued hurrah before the black and white silence of winter.”
