Ah, nostalgia!

Happy Tuesday. ☺

It's crazy how fast the leaves turn color in the fall! Last week, our maple tree had a ton of green leaves; this week, they're all gorgeous shades of burnished red and gleaming gold. Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. There's just something about it makes me feel so nostalgic.

And speaking of nostalgia, this animation created by filmmaker Andrea Dorfman really takes me back to those halcyon days of first love. It features a sweet song that Dorfman's boyfriend, Dave Hayden, wrote and recorded for her one year as a birthday present. To me, this video exemplifies what this season of reminiscence and wistfulness is all about. I hope you enjoy it.



Wishing you all a beautiful and memorable Tuesday. ☺

  1. Aww, I love this. I always feel particularly nostalgic during the fall too. It's my favorite time of year but there's also something melancholy about it.

  2. Ah, the joy which comes from viewing spectacularly golden trees is soon replaced by the bitter realization that SOMEone will have to rake them up.

  9. What a cute song, Dana. I love how your hand fits in mine. Yep, the throes of first being in love, always good to remember those days indeed! I bet your tree is gorgeous; I do love the vibrant colors of the fall leaves! (which we don't get here)

  11. They really do change fast Dana. I read somewhere once that peak foliage only lasts 3-4 days. Can you believe that?

  15. Hello!
    Nice post! I didn't know the English spearks use 'nostalgia'. Here in Brazil we say "saudades", but we use nostalgia too, but it's a little different. It's like... You don't have nostalgia for a people, here you just have nostalgia for a moment, and when it's about people is the same that "I miss you", but we say "Eu sinto saudades" = "I feel nostalgia"... I don't know!

    A liked your post!
    Have a nice November :D

    1. I feel that way too—even though my husband and I have only been married for seven years. When the days are rough, it's especially good to look back and remind myself why we got married in the first place. :)
