Date Day

The man was off from work today for election day, and since I now work from home we decided to drive up the Palisades and see the fall colors along the banks of the Hudson while they're still ablaze. Now there's a perk of the freelance life! A mid week, middle of the day, fall foliage date with my guy. It felt like a date, too, the two of us heading out early waving see ya later to our son. And we took pictures. I played with some of mine on Instagram. My Instagram jones hasn't gone away. To my mind, the filters are a little like painting on my photographs, and of course the soft details can be very forgiving. Here are a few snaps from our date day.

  1. Ohh you've warmed me up with these snuggly autumn photos. Looks like fun - and there I was stuck in work. Oh well :(

  2. Ah. So lovely! What a beautiful thing to do on a weekday!
    Owen has become enamored of the ideas of "dates." He went on one with Jessie and ever since then, he is ALL about the dates. He wants two spouses (gender not yet determined) and when Lily asked him why two he said, "Because I like dates. Duh."
    Don't we all?
    And my goodness, you and your date are so very beautiful. Thank you for bringing us along. And...for everything.

  6. I love your hair too! I'm thinking of chopping mine off (maybe doing Locks of Love)...But it wouldn't look as cool as yours.

  7. Nature is one of my most favoritest things. I hope that mid-week tryst has recharged your spirit.

  9. A midweek date day - how sublime! Y'all still look like young lovers.
    I love the pic with the big solid boulder on the left contrasted with the lacy, golden trees in the background…. would make a great painting :)
