practicing gratitude, part 2

When I think about November, the first thing that comes to mind is NOT how beautiful it is. In my mind, November is the transition from fall to winter. It’s the month when the vibrant colors of October start to fade. It’s the month of dark evenings and cooler weather.

As I thought about ways I could practice gratitude this month, I decided I would challenge myself to post a daily photo showing the beauty of November. Lots of people share posts each day about what they are thankful for. I decided I would try to do this through photography.

Honestly, I had my doubts about how successful I would be. But, as always, you will find beauty when you look for it. And during the first week of November, it’s been easy to find.

The trees have been amazing.

The weather has still been fluctuating from cool evenings to warm days, bringing eerily beautiful foggy mornings.

I’ve been able to catch a few sunrises.

Seeing the farmers out in their fields makes me appreciate the bounty of the season.

Week One of my gratitude photography project has been amazing. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the month brings!
