I’m back in New York, and I have one overwhelming emotion: brrrr! Those six weeks in Hawaii were some of the happiest I’ve ever had, and I admit it’s been a shock to the system to come back to cold air and grey skies. So many of the things I enjoyed so much about home this summer are no longer possible or pleasant: meeting up with a friend to walk our dogs in the park, running in my neighborhood (okay I never really enjoy that but it’s much worse in the cold), working from my deck, spending lots of time with friends with lighter summer work schedules. For now, I’m keeping so busy that at least I’m not dwelling on my lack of Vitamin D. In the week since I’ve been back I’ve celebrated my best friend’s birthday, gone all out for Halloween, escaped Hurricane Sandy and thrown myself into work.
For Photo of the Week I wanted to focus on something positive that I love about fall. So when blue skies came peeking out for an hour I grabbed my mom and one of the colorful autumn leaves I love so much and we had a little photo shoot.
Do you struggle with the winter blues? How do you deal?
