Fresh crisp autumn air, wonderful light breeze, and golden leaves! I love this time of year.

As the daylight hours start to shorten remember the importance of sunlight and it’s awesome power!

You may have to start bundling up soon but get outside, take in some deep breathes, stretch, take a walk, and enjoy!

This season always reminds me of corn mazes, visiting pumpkin patches, buying chili peppers, and going on some of the most peaceful and beautiful hikes ever!!

As winter comes, I personally get down pretty easily. I have found the quickest way to pull myself out of a negative mood is to get out of a dark room and find some sunshine. If it’s warm enough, open your windows and let in a fresh breeze. The winters where I live get pretty cold, but during the day I always have a couple of my window shades open to let in some daylight. When possible I bundle up and get outside!

Don’t let the colder seasons get you down, explore the beauty they bring!

What are some or your favorite autumn activities?

Ijams trail

I came upon this beautiful place last weekend.  I was out on my own looking for a short hike and stopped by Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville, TN.  I expected it to be an interesting little nature walk to help pass some time. I followed a gorgeous green path listening to the singing of the birds.

Little did I know I would come across this interesting and beautiful abandoned Limestone and Marble Quarry. It’s listed on the National Register for Historic Places.

You can even explore the area where the Lime Kilns at Mead’s used to reside.  The lime kilns would run at 1800 degrees Fahrenheit!
