fall is the best time ever. and although it’s very much my favorite season, i can never quite articulate why until it rolls back around again. it’s turning out to be a beautiful season in raleigh so i’ve been doing a lot of hiking and nature walking during the afternoons. autumn colors are my favorite and are surprisingly much more vivid and expansive than the colors of summer. it’s nice to have them back. i also visited the state fair (of course) to eat (of course) and to marvel at the other people attending the state fair. my main goal this year was to meet the barrel monster who i heard was lingering around the home and garden show, but alas, after looking for him everywhere i gave up after a few hours only to drown my sorrows in a giant bucket of cheese fries.
so here it is… the only thing missing is the pumpkin pie. ladies and gentlemen, i present to you: the fall.
