The Fall of "Fall"...

"It is Fall, It is Fall.....The leaves are falling everywhere.....That means it's FALL!!" That's a line from a song on Yo Gabba Gabba "Halloween" episode... Such a cute show & my Haley Jean adored it!! So as you all know by now, the inevitable is here....FALL!!! That means Winter is fast approaching & nearly time to hibernate from the harsh cold & trek the ice & snow. Fall, such a beautiful season was always a time of year that I looked forward to. The crispness in the air, the change in the wind & the sound of rustling, discolored leaves as the wind blew somehow seemed to put me in a place of serenity. I'm not sure why but it always did. I'd close my eyes & take it all in. Even the scent in the air brought a tranquility to me as I'd bask in God's work. 

Unfortunately, things have changed & my feelings toward this lovely season has somewhat changed. Since having my baby girl, life as one can safely assume had become a tad bit more challenging. Cold weather made traveling even more of a chore for me traveling in a wheelchair & a child with rather unique special needs. I felt isolated from others because it meant that staying home safe from the elements offered by Chicago were in her best interest. Now, Fall reminds me of all the not-so-fun aspects of this life & time. No longer do I look forward to it. What once was a pleasurable pass time is now a painful memory. The branches slowly become bare as the days pass. I don't even like going out. 

This weekend I completed some bracelets for some wonderful moms & as usual, I photographed the finished product. Natural light & nature makes for the best props & backdrop. I took them outside & as I looked around, I saw these beautiful leaves all over the ground & decided to include them in the photos as the backdrop. The smell of Fall reminded me of the tranquility I once felt as well as the impending fears that's been harboring my mind lately. I did it as a way to embrace the pain, embrace the beauty that represents Fall; starting over....A new beginning...:)
