Today, my dad sent me this photo he just took of the family homestead in early fall. Autumn has begun to break in New Jersey! I love the tips of the trees beginning to blush with a rosy orange glow - looks like my favorite ash trees that tower above the house in the back yard have already started shedding leaves. That means dad has already started to rake them into piles. If only there was someone to jump in them and make them scatter all over again. Can't wait to be there in November - my first Thanksgiving in New Jersey since college!
