This is what my backyard looks like right now. So surreal.

Autumn is not really a season I'm used to enjoying - Oklahoma tends to swing abruptly from summer to winter and back again, but that's part of it's cockeyed charm, I guess. 

But North Carolina! Durham is on fire right now. It's seems almost dangerous to drive the scenic route to the grocery store - the colors are so distracting. I keep thinking, "That's so Photoshopped." It's sad, really. And the weather - touches of frost in the morning, bright and crisp in the afternoon? - is eerily similar to what I've heard Autumn is like in this half of the country.

Though - now I'm itching for snow. You can take the girl out of Oklahoma...
