Loveliest of Trees, the Autumn Ones Now.


We're inching towards a New England fall, and I can hardly stand it, I'm so excited to see the colors. I was in Mississippi for three years, surrounded by disappointly green pine trees, so the seasons feel like a thrill. I know I won't think so when it's icy freezing winter, but for now I'm happy to be in an Autumn world.

I take the Mass Pike to work every day, and every day the trees are a bit more changed. Today I felt like I was driving down a corridor of red, and not all of the trees have even decided to participate yet.
I'm trying to figure out how we can possibly afford to cruise on up to Vermont for a weekend. Isn't that what one is supposed to do? I mean, it's a cliche, but I'm willing to make the sacrifice of cliche-ness if it means I can walk through a forest of colors and kick up pretty leaves and eat soup by a fireplace while wearing a scarf.
Maybe we could eat nothing but potatoes for a month ... That's a fall-ish food, right?

Yes, and potatoes have so many possibilities: potato soup, potato casserole, potatoes scalloped, baked, mashed, roasted, and fried.

Beautiful. I just finished looking at Ralph Lauren's fall collection (click on the video): http://www.ralphlauren.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=1760785&ab=global_home and I'm jealous of all that "back eastiness". The East just does fall better. Maybe it's the history factor.
