{loving} november

It's always been a known fact that spring is my favorite season.  I've always thought that nothing could be better than excitement of the fresh flower bloom and the re-emerging sun.  The enlivening feeling of the shedding of the winter hibernation and waking up to new life.

However, this November I am beginning to doubt myself.  I have been bundling up and taking grey walks through the Vermont woods and found a whole new attachment with this time of year.  There is something incredibly beautiful about the blending between autumn and winter - the last remaining leaves on the trees, the drying up of the flowers, the slow creeping in of the winter decay.

It is a mysterious time, one that makes me want to wear dark colors and take in the subtle transition happening around me - to break out my candles, warm up some tea, and stay inside reading alchemical texts and fantasy novels.  

And tonight, I will probably go and do just that.


  1. I didn't think that I liked novembers, but your beautiful photos are starting to convince me otherwise


  2. These are my favorite colors, hmm. The new site design is lovely and refined, too!

    1. Thank you! I'm still not the happiest, but it's a start.

  3. I just want to go pick fall's bounty thanks to you.

  4. I think you have managed to make my outlook on november to change quite completely. Your november looks and sounds wonderful. May I come and take a walk in the Vermont woods with you? :)


even if I don't always respond, your comments make my day.
