fall on the farm




Fall is really magical, isn't it? I love the change in color of everything, from the leaves to the light, and I love the crisp air and the first crystals of frost. Last week I took Aidan and Olivia to the farm where my dad keeps his horse, which is about 15 minutes away from our house, in Maineville, Ohio. I might be biased, but I think Warren County is one of the most beautiful parts of the world. 







These kids are getting so big. Aidan turned six in August and is loving Kindergarten. Olivia is four and a half, going on fourteen, and prefers to wear pink all the time. Especially while horseback riding in her helmet, complete with a sparkly tiara.



Farmer Eddie has lots of chickens, and we often get our eggs from him. 



See, all pink, with a bit of lavender, and snow boots for good measure. She really is quite the little fashionista.




I love this barn that houses Alex, Dad's horse, and the others on the farm. It's old and weathered and has a great tin roof.





And the best texture.




I inadvertently had my 55-250 mm lens on my camera that day (I usually shoot with my 18-55 mm one) and in hindsight, I'm glad I did because I got some really nice images of the farm.

































Even though I grew up in the city, I think I'll always be a bit of a country girl at heart. I always leave the farm feeling very inspired and I'm really thankful that our family can get away to such a great place so often.

Oh boy oh boy! I see quilt pattern potential for you in many of those close up shots on the farm (like the barn wood shot). Once Halloween costume sewing is done, I hope to get back to my quilt sewing as well. Anywhoo - lovely farm pics. Thanks for giving us a peek into your area! - Jen
