fall at the morton arboretum


This fall I’ve been leading outdoor educational programs (aka field trips) at the Morton Arboretum, an enormous outdoor tree museum in the Chicago suburbs. Most of the leaves have fallen by now but a few weeks ago I got out to snap a few pictures of the scenery! I’m so grateful that I live in a state that experiences a gorgeous autumn, despite the horrendous winters that follow.

It’s been extra dreary and dark here now that Daylight Savings has taken effect and I’m trying to motivate myself to tackle some inside projects, since it feels like our apartment will NEVER be completely organized. We’ve been living here for three months now but still have the “junk room” full of random crap that drives me crazy. Oh well, it will all get sorted out eventually, after a few more trips to IKEA to stock up on shelves and bins. I’ve also been trying to get back into posting more regularly on the old blog (a constant battle since I left grad school), so thanks for still reading this :) I hope your fall has been splendid!
