Where do ideas come from? All around! Check out Melissa Stewart’s video about the inspiration for her nature books:
There’s no denying that fall has finally descended on us here in Atlanta and that winter is on the way. The temperature is dropping and every morning on my drive into work I see roads covered in crispy, crunchy brown, yellow and red leaves. Suddenly, it’s not unusual to see people in scarves and jackets and there are advertisements everywhere for events coming up in December. For me, this is my happy time–I love fall and all the promise of winter holidays ahead!
How do you celebrate the new season? Are you inspired by the crispness in the fall air and the changing colors of the leaves? What’s your favorite part of the Autumnal nature where you live? Or is fall the time when you start counting down the days until spring?
