Autumn is my favorite season. The air changes, it is cooler, the leaves change from green to yellow, orange , red and brown. Autumn is the signal that starts a new school year.

Living in the Pacific Northwest, means I am close to the water, mountains and dessert and all four seasons. Drizzling rain and wind blowing in my face is a a treasure to me. I savor breathing the salty air from the beach and the pine cone fragrance from the trees.
