We are so fortunate to have enjoyed a simply gorgeous fall this year. I guess all of the rain from the summer months did some good after all because the color on the trees this year have been more vivid than I ever remember.
|God has definitely been showing His majesty this season!|
I first visited this area when I was in college several years ago. We were on chorus tour that took us through Asheville (where I first saw and fell in love with the Biltmore house) into Greenville. At the time I didn’t think there was much to this area. A few small colleges, but nothing really attracted me or many people I knew at the time.
Then we moved here with Audley’s job.
It’s just a great place to go and relax, an escape from the Urban life, right in the middle of the city!
Over the weekend we enjoyed a little family downtime by spending the afternoon at the falls goofing off together and taking pictures. It was a relaxing time for us all and we were truly able to enjoy some of our South Carolina autumn.
|One of the last hydrangeas of the season. I love the look of them at this stage.|
The mood of my teenagers reflected the beauty and casualness of the day. It was like we didn’t have a care in the world.
Couldn’t we all use more days like this?!
|Even Audley & I got in on the fun during the day.|
Honestly it has been too long since our family has enjoyed such down time. With the hectic schedules of work, school, youth group and sports we tend to forget how important it is to have this time. With a cold front moving in this week I don’t see too many more days like this showing up in the next couple of months. It was so nice to get out and enjoy a bit of our area without really having to drive far. And it was even more enjoyable to have this time with my precious family.
I hope you are having a beautiful autumn where you are!
