October just flew by. Why does time rushes like an express train these days? It seems  that the biggest challenge for me is to slow it down, and still I fail somehow. I did not have time to blog, but we did have time for some nice outings, nowhere terribly new and yet, because of the season and its colors, these places felt truly magical.

Sunday snapshots

There is a wonderful little paradise close to our house called Hudson Gardens, a truly peaceful place to wander.

We just love to walk through, kids roll on the grass and sketch in a little corner called Monet’s place.
