Today’s post is Part of a 31 Day writing series where I will choose moments from my life and let them be my writing prompt for the day. This one is inspired by a drive to look at the changing color of the leaves. Click the prompted button to see all the post in this series.

If I don’t have an opportunity to wander about on a lovely fall day to see the leaves in all their glory I can become a little frazzled. I always try to keep the third weekend of October open, which is usually peak in our neck of the woods. I don’t always win the calendar war.
Yesterday, after a busy weekend and arriving home around 4 PM my husband graciously took me out for a little spin on our way to the church fireside gathering. Just minutes from our back door we had some of the most beautiful views I have seen anywhere.
We drove through a covered bridge that frames a lovely country church and wound around a delightful ribbon of country road that had some lovely fall color at every twist and turn (and I literally mean twist and turn).
It was a delightful drive that ended at a friends house where our small congregation gathered for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Long after everyone else had gone home, my husband and I stayed around the fire with our friend catching up and watching the flames burn low. It was a peaceful way to end the evening.
