Admiring Autumn

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the other seasons too, but if I had to pick one, I’d pick fall. I’m thrilled when the temperature drops (still waiting) and the trees in the neighborhood put on their spectacular show.IMG_3860This fall we’ve been traipsing around the country, visiting our family, enjoying one of our last college parents’ weekends and participating in a lovely wedding celebration.  Our travels have included Boston, Washington D.C., Ann Arbor, Milwaukee, Los Angeles and Spokane.  We’ve been lucky with the weather, eaten some fantastic meals, and it’s great to be back home!

I’ve seen these cool Mark di Suvero sculptures now in San Francisco, Ann Arbor, Milwaukee and on the Stanford campus!
