Growing up in the desert I never really understood fall. Yeah, the weather changed a little, the days grew shorter and everyone said it was fall. But you never knew what it meant to rake leaves or see a pile of leaves and you had no clue what it meant for leaves to change color. It's really unfortunate because I now know what Fall is. Breathtaking. I love the rainy days, the huge piles of leaves, the leaves piling up along all the streets, the brisk air of fall days and the colors. This is my favorite. The deep reds, the bright yellows, the vibrant oranges all mixed in with a little bit of green left over from warm summer days. It's amazing. You really have to see it to believe it. So today I'm very thankful for Fall foliage.
