Observations: Taken in Virginia-Highlands. I first started to notice the leaves changing. Fall is definitely my favorite season. I wait to smell the leaves every year…hasn’t happened yet, but they are starting to fall. I am starting to think of buying sweaters and boots and drinking tea in the morning. There is energy in fall air. I dont know if it was ingrained into me as a child because it meant school was back in session and the holiday season was beginning. It gets me every time.
