The Handful of Fall Leaves


I love fall, especially when the leaves start to change colors!

I was especially loving it today on my way to work. I always walk along a river that has miles of cherry trees on both sides. You might think cherry tree leaves just turn brown. Well, they do. But they actually change to different shades of yellow, orange, and red...before quickly turning brown.

So this morning I started picking up the pretty ones...and before I knew it, I had a whole handful (with a few other types of leaves thrown in)!

I was also late for work. (If you saw a crazy woman with a handful of leaves running her butt off this morning in Shinjuku, that would be me.) But it was worth it because these leaves are so pretty!

What do you love about fall? x

    1. Oh Ru, how are you? Are you alive and well?

      PS: Fall is also a great time for a cup of coffee on the terrace seats when you have time! ;D
