For my final “Top Five” list of 2020, I’m looking at photos that were taken the few times we actually went somewhere, starting with this wolf we saw at Brookfield Zoo back in January:
One of the last places Bunny and I went was to the Fabulous Fox Theatre to see Riverdance in February:
We took a lovely walk around Creve Coeur Lake in November:
Later that month, we attended Garden Glow at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Because the event started earlier than usual, we had the added bonus of not just seeing beautiful lights, but also a carpet of bright yellow gingko leaves!
When we visited Cahokia Mounds in November, I thought this tree stump was really cool:
It wasn’t hard to choose these pictures, because I just didn’t have many pictures taken away from home from which to choose. But in a way, that made these moments more special, and helped me appreciate the beauty around me in a way I might not have otherwise!
I mentioned that Moose was very excited about the five-day weekend he got to have surrounding his birthday. Well, the five-day weekend turned into a six-day weekend, thanks to what I think may be the earliest snow day he’s ever had! And when you add in the meteor we saw streak through the sky last night, it has been quite a birthday long weekend!
In all honestly, I think closing the schools was ridiculous. We got maybe two inches of snow, and yes, it was really cold this morning, and there was some ice, but if they’re closing schools this early in the season, I’m kind of concerned about what’s going to happen come January. I will say that it definitely looks pretty, especially since so many of the trees still have their beautiful (and now snow-covered) fall foliage!
Yesterday evening, Chickadee and I took a walk around Tower Grove Park. It was lovely outside…just the right amount of chilly, and the leaves are starting to turn. There’s nothing I like better than a brisk fall day!
I love everything about fall (well, except football!). The cooler temperatures, the changing leaves, the anticipation as my favorite holidays approach…but I think my very favorite thing about fall is the food. I unabashedly love all things pumpkin spice. Cereal, desserts, coffee…I will buy and eat/drink it all. Plus my other favorite flavors of fall…apple, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and…Frankenberry? Fall’s many and bounteous foods are something I look forward to with excitement every year!
