My hometown has a way of making you miss her in the fall months.
Over the weekend, James and I were back home for the wedding of one of my oldest friends. We shuffled down familiar roads, kicking up the sort of bright red and orange maple leaves that are entirely absent from fall in our Brooklyn neighborhood. We stood on old sea walls and watched a rising tide while I blathered to James using the first and last names of people he will never know–a small town habit that I’ve not been able to shake. I’m sad to think how much this place will have suffered in this storm. Ironically, it’s the sandy parts I’m most worried about.
Back here in our corner of Brooklyn, things are whipped and worn, but generally still standing. Other corners have not fared so well and the stories are still unfolding. Sending out love and wishes for people to stay tucked in and safe today.
Gorgeous hometown 🙂 I miss the leaves as well! We don't have much of a fall here in Arizona!
Beautiful photos! Glad y'all are safe.
It really is beautiful, looks like a movie scene. Stay safe!
These are such gorgeous photos and a welcome visual respite from the gray skies out my window 🙂
lovely photos! i am glad to hear you are well and safe.
One reason why I miss living in New England is the beautiful FALL. Southern Indiana really doesnt do FALL justice!! Unfortnately, I bet most of the leaves are now on the ground or flying somewhere in the wind! 🙁
Glad to hear you made it through the storm..sorry to know that some did not!
No place does fall better than New England. Glad to hear you are safe and sound.
A truly beautiful autumn there.
I know the feeling having been through hurricane weather so much here in Florida, but it's definitely something else since it so rarely hits the north. Seeing the news coverage about what's happening up there is so devastating. Stay safe!
I grew up in the town over! Such a small world.
Beautiful warm colours on your way.
Winter greetings from Finland!
So beautiful 🙂 This is how autumn looks in my head! And not super cold, gray and rainy like it is here.
