autumn in california



yes, more stripes.

leon and i are off to southern california for a few weeks starting thursday. i have to give a paper at a conference in oakland, and then more research and writing in orange county. by the time we return, all the leaves will have fallen. we're hoping to go apple picking on wednesday since this will likely be our last fall in new england.

Good luck with the conference and enjoy your California trip. You both look so great in your stripes--I really can't believe how fast Leon has grown. He's so lovely.

Look at that smile! Oh man. I am as bad as a grandma.

Have a great time on your trip. If you get apples, homemade apple sauce or apple crisp cannot be recommended highly enough!

So cute. Make sure to pack some warm clothing, it's been rather chilly here in L.A. lately. I had to dust off my sweaters this weekend. Have a safe trip!

Leanne said...

So jealous! Say hello to SoCal for me. I'm making the annual pilgrimage to Boston for HOCR this weekend and was hoping you would be around. Next year. I hope you get to wear your boots at home!

you're both so cute! I was feeling concern for whether it might be too warm to wear the No6 boots in southern california. At least they'll be waiting for you at home...

Marti said...

Have a great trip! Erica are you thinking of moving to Portland? :)

Jessica said...
