Fall In The Canyons

There is a naked truth with the falling of fall.

Trees once heavy laden with ornamentation, color, and character now stand bare in the foggy mornings of fading days. No longer do they shelter us from the winds and sun as they once did; they stand naked and honest, humble and reticent, baring nothing but their unclothed branches.

With the change of seasons comes a change in us all. Here, a moment is created just for us… to look in the mirror closer and evaluate what it is we truly want out of our lives… ourselves… our better halves. Spring often brings a surge of energized creativity after a long winter of hibernation. Fall hits us gently after the long lazy warmth of summer days, with its crisp breeze and misleading time. Easier said than done… finding the truth of what your purpose is, what your true calling’s focus may be… but one thing is for certain, answers lie in the stripping of excess, of getting to the bare root of you. All the color that is added later will be founded in solidarity of strength of knowledge. Even with the falling of all the tangible aesthetics, what is left reveals more beauty than before; knowing where it all truly stems from.

I hope all of you are welcoming this season’s change with great promise and excited possibilities. Light your first fire, pour your perfect cup… take a deep breath of fall’s fresh faced air.

Much love.

Let Amy’s words drip down like the first candles lit of the season pouring rivulets of wax you cant help but reach out and catch.. the first warm to the bone sensation spreading from your fireplace toasty toes – you can’t take your eyes off turn away or deny the magic of what you’re seeing, or reading, to be undeniably true. Reveling in that turning & the goodies on display in these photos. What a team, what clothes! What gorgeous photos, and toasted to an autumn crisp of perfection. Pass the cute socks and that big poncho, please! x
