Fall in Iowa: A Photo Essay
Okay, maybe “photo essay” is a stretch, but I was looking through pictures this morning and picked out some of my favorites from autumns past.
Decorating for fall just feels right. I’m a big fan of the muted colors and natural elements.
But Mother Nature does a pretty good job of decorating on her own. Dark gray blue skies, golden fields, and a rainbow of leaves…
But for many of my friends and family members, fall isn’t about decorating or lounging around enjoying nature’s beauty. Fall is about farming.
A message for my farmer friends this harvest season:
Thank you for what you do. Be safe this fall. And take a few minutes to enjoy the beauty around you as you reap the rewards of your hard work.
And if you need a reminder not to take life too seriously during this incredible busy and stressful time, I offer you these pictures of my sweet little boys, because I’m pretty sure you can’t help but smile at them.
