Happy Friday everyone! It's nearly the start of a long weekend and I can't imagine a lot of people aren't excited about that! Hopefully, the weather will cooperate with us a bit more than it has the past few days, though, I can't lie - I love a rainy day!!! Two in a row is enough, however.
Labor day weekend. To me, it signals the end of summer. I know things are different now, but when I was a kid, this was the last weekend of summer before we had to start school. It was the weekend you did that final summer family vacation or hung out with your friends or did nothing but sleep (boy, do I miss sleeping). Anyway, it was the time when it truly felt like summer was winding down and autumn was upon us.
I personally LOVE fall. It is my favorite season and I look forward to it every year. Even though it means winter is coming and I know that I will inevitably feel like I could do with 3-4 months less of that come February! Doesn't matter. I still love fall. I love the change in weather, I love the changing leaves, I love hiking and my husband's birthday and jumping in piles of leaves with my boys.
And, of course, I love taking pictures. It seems like this is always the time families think about getting that yearly snapshot and why not?! It's beautiful weather, the clothes are fun, Christmas cards are coming and the scenery is beautiful. There are so many wonderful places to take pictures in and around Sioux Falls during this time of year that it's hard to decide where. Newton Hills, McKennan Park, The Perry Nature Area. One place I have a particular fondness for is the Palisades. We go there every year for my husband's birthday, rain or shine, freezing or roasting, bugs or no. We set up "camp" (I only do one day camping as I'm not a big fan of bugs...or wild animals...or peeing outside), get the fire going, talk, open presents, hike and then roast weenies and marshmallows! Just writing about it and I can smell the fire, see the wisps of cinders flying in the air, hear everyone talking and laughing. Yup, I can't wait for fall!
The other reason I love Palisades is that it is a beautiful place to take pictures.
See what I mean?
I'm not sure if you're a big fan of fall like I am and I realize it may seem like it is still far away, but truly it will be here before we know it and whether we want it or not. I don't know if you've booked your family photos or not, but if not, I hope you'll consider me!

Hey world! I LOVE to talk, especially about the things I'm passionate for!
