Back to School



I want to think that Spring is my favorite season because the dead of winter is giving way to warmer weather. The plants are blooming and the earth is coming back to life. This however, does not really seam to happen in a magical story book kinda of way in New York City. It is more like freezing snow turning into warmer freezing rain, rain and more rain, allergies and finally its just hot and humid. I have come to terms with my romanticized idea of Spring and have decided that Fall is my favorite season. The weather is perfect. The trees and grass are still very lush while transitioning into the orange, reds and yellows of October. Halloween is just around the corner and school is back in session. I have so many great memories of going back to school. New school supplies, a new dorm room and campus, new friends and classes, a whole semester full of new. I love the smell of autumn leaves and fireplaces in crisp weather, surrounded by pumpkins and candy corn. Fall on my Alma Mater, the University of Colorado is especially beautiful in Boulder, Colorado. It is surrounded by the Flatirons of the Rocky Mountains, rivers, lakes and streams. When the weather begins to cool, I always think about all the wonderful memories of going back to school.

  1. Dreamy photos as always! I get that 'back to school' feeling at this time of year too, this year even more so as I have started a PhD. Can't wait to dig out a plaid pinafore dress and wear it with my satchel!

  6. This post is perfect and I really hits home with me. Spring is my favorite season for a number of reasons but I am slowly loving the fall as well! Pendleton wool skirts, hot drinks and I can cut my fringe and not have to worry about humidity or my hair poofing up!

    P.S. very happy to have found another lover of candy corn!
