Last week we performed one of my favorite autumn rituals – driving up the local canyon near our home into the mountains on what is called “The Alpine Loop.”
Every year I try to take charming pictures of my children in the awe-inspiring setting, but usually they turn out like this.
I try to remind myself that it captures our ‘reality’/personality with a more inspiring backdrop than the messy family room at home.
My progress so far. I’m using an Essex linen/cotton blend as the back ground. (I think it’s natural, but it might be darker.) I’m so antsy to keep going on this one! Then I’ll have a permanent reminder of my favorite season.
