Walking along Detroit's Woodward Avenue yesterday after spending another Sunday at the DIA I noticed leaves were crunching under my feet and the orange and brown tint to the trees - autumn is slowly eating its way into summer days. It's still warm, very warm in south east Michigan, but mornings are colder, nights certainly are and it's these conditions with make the East and Mid West of the US infamous for it's fall show of tree colours. The bright blue warm August days just sets off a stunning backdrop for these shades.
As we were driving up we spied lines of freshers with their life packed into boxes as they hung outside their residence buildings at Wayne State University (which is in Midtown Detroit) - where have the years gone that eight years ago I was on the verge of breaking out from being a country girl, my life packed into suitcases as I started my adventure as a Fresher at Newcastle University?! If that wasn't enough as another season approaches it makes me remember just how quickly time seems to drift away. It only seems like a couple of months ago that I arrived in the US, in November it'll turn two years as my home.
