this kind of happiness.

It's beautifully fall around here lately. The leaves are changing and falling like crazy, but the weather has been sunny and warm. It's just the right kind of fall weather for last bike rides, evenings in the park, and walks by the river. It's also prime time picture taking season, and because I haven't brought Luke in for traditional portraits since he was 11 months old, it was my duty as our in house photographer to capture his leafy rapture (what is it with kids and leaf piles??).
This kind of happiness is infectious. Definitely the best part about being a mom.
