I am a forty-something mom who writes about parenting, mid-life, and anything else that makes me laugh (or cry) while living those years between changing diapers and wearing them.

Fall for these cute leaf pictures

The days are shorter, the air feels a bit cooler — yes, fall is finally here! There’s just something about the changing of the seasons that inspires us to grab a bit of outdoor fun while we still can. What’s more fun than a few kids and a big pile of leaves? Some of our favorite moms shared their favorite pics with us. Maybe you’ll be inspired to rake a big pile and have a jump or two.

Crisp air, piles of crunching leaves and the smell of a Maine apple farm waiting to be explored could make any heart skip a beat. I love that autumn allows my family to get away from air conditioners and sun screen and spend quality screen-free time outdoors.
