October is the BOMB, and one other reason to visit Michigan soon.

It's another beautiful clear, cold morning here in Michigan. The leaves are falling off the trees and the dew on the grass is turning to frost as Mother Nature closes up her summer cottage for the winter.

Every weekday morning, I'm up before the sun to walk my daughter to preschool. My son is older, so he walks by himself, because I am an embarrassment. It's not a long walk, just .2 miles (.32 kilometers, for those who live in countries that use the metric system, aka every country except the U.S.), but on my way I get to see some of the most amazing fall colors. I thought I'd share some pictures with you, so you can enjoy them while I work on tomorrow's recap.












The next two pictures were taken at my house, of our backyard and our driveway. If these don't scream "idyllic rural paradise" then I don't know what does:



And more from the walk to school:





Yes, it's pretty awesome looking here around this time of year, which is why the writing group I'm a part of chooses this magical season to host their amazing "Ready, Set, Write!" conference. This year, it's timed perfectly for NaNoWriMo, so those of you who can come spend a weekend in Michigan, please do! You can find the information about the conference here: Grand Rapids Region Writers Group. Please pardon me, I'll be plugging it pretty hard for the next two weeks, because it never occurred to me to mention it here. Because I'm a superhero when it comes to distraction. But if you can afford to, it's definitely a good kickstarter to NaNoWriMo.

Say some stuff! If you can't think of anything to say, leave a link to a cute dog picture. I'm easy.
