This is our first fall in our new home. Moving from Oklahoma was so hard, partially because we both love the beauty of the seasons and the trees in our home state. When we moved here we moved to the center of the city and spent our first fall in an apartment complex that was located next to a lot of concrete and tall buildings beside a high traffic road. Not exactly eye catching. It was noisy, full of litter and graffiti, and in some places a little scary.
Our home here in Thornton is completely different. There are trees everywhere, with leaves bursting into color. We live in a lovely old neighborhood where the neighbors are all friendly and the traffic doesn't intrude much. This year I don't feel homesick, I feel like I'm home.
