Today is the autumnal equinox, when day and night are of equal length. We are feeling cooler temperatures early in the morning and when the sun falls. I am being pulled more towards hearty meals of soup, lots of apple recipes, winter squash, and pumpkin spice. I am also craving lots more time with yarn. I love autumn.
To mark the first day of autumn, Ashleigh and I drove the blue ridge parkway to the Pisgah Inn for a craft fair and some lunch overlooking the mountains.

Can you see the colors changing slowly but surely. It was quite sunny out and a bit hard to get a good picture, but you get the point.

View from Pisgah Inn, pretty flowers, and Ashleigh walking on a path around the Inn.

Treasures from the craft fair, an elephant because I love them and plain old drawings with pencil or pen and paper are one of my favorite art forms. A painting of the back of a woman. I am not sure why, but I was very drawn to this painting and after circling the craft fair once, I came back to this painting wanting to buy it. I am thinking of hanging it in my bathroom. It is beautiful, isn't it.
Hope you all had a wonderful first day of autumn.
Peace, Yasmin
