Welcome to leaf peepin’ season. For a few months of the year, New England is an autumnal wonderland.  The air is crisp, the colors are vibrant, and the apple cider doughnuts are warm. Yes — it is finally time to break out flannel, indulge in pumpkin spice everything, and appreciate nature.

For those of you who do not live here, or have the luxury of visiting, here are some of my personal drool-worthy photos of New England in the fall, along with some quotes, to get you in the mood to GO OUTSIDE!
