  3. It's a beautiful day in East Tennessee today too. Do you suppose I can get little Eleni's Papou out for a walk this evening?

  4. I'm so giggling because I thought what the heck...At first I thought those were YOUR feet and legs in the stroller and thought how in the world did you manage to get in there? Then I saw the wee little hands that belonged to those feet and ahhh there you go it's a wee girl and NOT Anna Maria. Silly me!
    But those shoes...oh those shoes...do they come in my size???

  14. Ah. You make me *heart* Tennessee too. Those are beautiful sights. Thank you for sharing, and that equation 45min=3hr... delightful math!

  16. Oooh! This makes me excited about moving back to the states this summer! My husband is applying to grad school at both Vanderbilt and Duke, so maybe come next fall I will be able to enjoy a southern autumn, too! Thanks for taking me along on your outdoor adventure!

  17. The photos are from the Deerwood Arboretum which is right across the road from us and has the Little Harpeth River running through it. Eleni borrowed her big sister's shoes for the walk (stumble).

    *Meg* my husband works at Vanderbilt! Keep me posted :)

  24. Love the pics, Autumn is such a wonderfull season, i love the colors on the trees, the sun, the shadows, all of them so beautifully captured on your pics.

  25. Thanks for the lovely photos. I have never been to Tennessee. I too thought the shoes were yours, at first, and I wondered how you got into that stroller.

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a lovely post... felt like I was out for a Fall walk. Of course, that was your intent. I won't even go into 'the business of the shoes' as it's been covered already and thankfully cleared up.

    OK... I will do what my Doctor and Anna Maria said and actually go out for a walk today. Thanks for the inspiration through your photos.

  28. Reminds me of Missouri. Aren't midwest falls awesome? We're still waiting for fall here in Houston. Maybe cooler by Quilt Market? (But you won't get any turning leaves.) Oh, I thought it was a little odd as well that you or Juliana were sitting in the stroller!

  35. How I miss our Tennessee days and how I miss you. It's so easy to take something forgranted, but when you leave it, you feel its scars,...some good and some bad, but scars nonetheless. Oh how I diverge... when all I really want to say is that... My Eleni is Divine!
