It’s time for an Autumn outfit post! If you think I mixed up the title of this post, I did, but don’t worry, it was intentional! **salute to Peter Tork**

I really love this daylily sweater! It’s warm, cozy, and comfortable; all the things a sweater should be, and considering it was only $3 at a church sale, I think it’s perfect!

There’s something about walking alongside a lake in the autumn time. Somewhat akin to spring, it feels serene and peaceful, though it’s not quite the same. In springtime, everything feels alive as nature finally awakens after the callous months of winter.

During autumn, the peacefulness seems to emerge from the silent and temporary death of nature. To everything there is an end. Autumn seems to signify nature’s farewell tidings, until it can return again. In the meantime, we can enjoy a walk around the lake, a bike ride down a leaf covered trail, or a car adventure getting lost in the countryside. In October, we get to enjoy all those magical moods of autumn, particularly when surrounded by nature! So sometime this weekend, be sure to go outside and enjoy the enchanting environment that God has provided!
