Do You Remember? Fall Leaves

Do You Remember?

The older I get, the more I love to reflect on the people and events of my past.  I wonder if you have some of the same memories I have? 

I've always loved fall.  I love the colors and the smells and the cool nights.  Do you remember how fun it was to play in the fall leaves? 

Me as a little girl raking the leaves at our home in Bakersfield, California
Growing up, we didn't have the sophisticated toys that kids have today and so we spent a lot of time playing with simple things.  I remember how much I loved it when the leaves began to fall. We would spend hours raking the leaves into huge piles and jumping into the piles. 

I also remember loving the sound of the leaves as they crunched under my shoes.  But even more than that, I loved the way the leaves crunched as my mom walked on them in her high heels and I could hardly wait until for the day I too would wear high heels. 

Do you have childhood memories of playing in the fall leaves?
