They sent me to Binghamton

I've always wanted to be on the east coast, and the universe responded…by sending me to Binghamton, NY. Oh you've never heard of it? Neither had I, but I do so love adventures and that's how I choose to view this. Let the adventures begin!

The Leaves are Changing


One day I walked out of work and came across this:

fall leaves 2b

Then when I got home I was greeted by this:


The leaves are changing! I also notice that they seem to change on a day to day basis. Everyday the trees look more and more red/orange/brown. AHHHHHH!!! I’m so excited!! My friends here commented that they were very amused when I first mentioned how excited I was to see the one tree that went rogue and decided to turn red/orange/brown early. They said, “Oh yeah, that’s nothing. Just you wait.” 😀

I know I’ve been acting very childlike in my reaction to seasons around here, even during the biting cold winter (because snow!) but hopefully it brings back memories of their own initial reactions during their childhood for the people who grew up around here. I wonder if I will always feel this way about the change in season or if my enthusiasm and excitement will fade over time. I guess if it does, all I need as a reminder is someone like myself who has never experienced it before to open my eyes once again to how amazing this all is.

Speaking of being childlike…on my list of things to do once we’re in the middle of fall is to jump in a pile of leaves!

When I first started this blog, life had just thrown me a curveball by sending me to the middle of nowhere in upstate New York right smack in the middle of winter from my hometown in sunny, southern California. I had no idea what to expect, how long I would stay, or even where my life was heading. All I knew was that there were a great many adventures to be had after they sent me to Binghamton.

  1. My favorite time of year…it also cools down so I can play tricks with my exhaling “steam”!
