This time of year makes me so excited! While yes, the shorter days definitely has me feeling more tired than usual, the changing colors, the delicious seasonal drinks, the chillier weather makes me want to do all of the fall-related activities. I also love that this is the time of year where we probably spend the most time with family. Between Thanksgiving coming up next month and then Christmas after that, it’s a time of year where people seem to be – for the most part – in a pretty cheerful mood as well.
Delaware hasn’t quite hit the time of the year where it’s at its leak peakness. There are still some trees with quite a few leaves on it and the terrain, for the most part, is still very green. However, there’s still quite a bit of color changing going on along the 95 corridors and beyond. As we drove down to Delaware to see family this past weekend, we saw a lot more colors than we saw last weekend. Hues of yellow, orange, brown, and red adorning the trees along the street as enjoyed our brunch at De La Coeur. The cool breeze, warm enough that we could wear our lighter jackets but chilly enough to remind us that it’s fall.
Even more surprisingly, a park we enjoy walking in was really scenic this weekend! While many of the leaves on the trees were still pretty green, the ground was covered in fallen leaves at some areas in the park, covering it like a multi-colored blanket. As a result, we snapped a few photographs while there before we did some walking through it and later at the art museum in Delaware.
What’s your favorite time of year?
