Who wants an 80's flashback with this post??? I do!!! Gotta love Depeche Mode. This is exactly how I feel about this season.

Below are a few shots of when we lived in Utah. Breathtaking beauty is all round that state, especially in Autumn.

Your giving Alyson a run for her money with those pictures! Very beautiful!

Emily Anne Leyland said...

Thanks lady!!! One day I will be as good as you and Alyson.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

OH you and Alyson are making us all soooo jealous!!!

How would you feel if I plastered a bunch of beautiful beach photos all over my blog in the dead of winter?

I just might have to do that now, just to show you how if feeeeels.

You won't believe this, but the word verifier says witties

Your verifier knows me soooo well, it's almost creepy.

Alyson | New England Living said...

So funny, but when I saw the title from you post on my sidebar, the Depeche Mode immediately started playing through my head! Then I came over here and get it hear it for real!

I love the pictures! Spectacular! I love that one where you are looking into a canyon. You must have beautiful falls down south too, don't you? I'm assuming you have about the same about of trees as us. I've been to Tennessee, but not where you are.

Alyson | New England Living said...

Oh, and Dummy should post pics of Hawaii in the dead of winter. I'm surprised she hasn't posted any yet.

hologra.........that's the hologramm, baby.

Well, I post pictures and no one comments because they are BORING!!!!

Really nice Sewl, My brother lived in NC back in the early 60's.

You know, it takes a lot of tie to follow everybody!

Thanks for sharing. I miss fall colors. No fall in Vegas. Only Summer and Winter. So fun to see what it looks like. I agree with everyone else. Great pictures.

Natalia said...

Crash- you're right. Sorry... post some beach pics than to get back at me. I would LOVE to go to a beach right about now. My verifier is very intelligent :)

Alyson- yeah we do have beautiful falls. Not as amazing as New England I'. sure but they are pretty spectacular here. The shots are all right out in my back yard. My neighbors probably think I am crazy. I am always out there taking pics. lol

Arlon- thank you! You are right, it does take a lot to follow everyone. I appreciate your lovely comments though. Keep em coming ;)

Pat- thank you too. My family almost moved to Vegas at one point. I love the seasons so Vegas would not have been a good choice.haha

Thanks Nat-I know, I can't stop putting it on and dancing with the kids. I LOVE Depeche Mode.

Heather said...

wow, these are amazing photos! utah is especially magestic! Wonderful~

Chris said...


Okay, I am copying photo number three (I think? It's the golden leaf one. No, I mean the REALLY gold one, not the other fabulous ones. You know, the one that's really really gold? Okay.), enlarging it, framing it, putting it on my wall, and saying I took it. So, there.

Of course, here in L.A. it might be hard to make that fly, but I'm a brave woman.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said... have the perfect sense of music going along with your and Crash will start yet ANOTHER trend!

It's hard to live up to being her twin!

PINZY...apparently your verifier knows me really well also! cause I'm sure it was being nice and meant Panzy! :)

Emily Anne Leyland said...

Thanks Heather- yeah Utah is beautiful. I love the West. You still buzzing from the show???

Chris- ahahahahahahaha that's awesome. I am flattered.

Shelle- yeah- we are totally trend setters ;)
Actually- Crash is just copying my genius. I have been doing songs with each post on my family blog for over a year. She just thinks because she is waaay more popular she can get away with making it look like it was all her idea. Mine- all mine.

J/k Crash, I miss our daily emails. Thanks for dropping me like a hot potato now the contest is over:)

Alyson | New England Living said...

I love those shots from your backyard! I swear, the east coast is so amazingly beautiful!

Verifier: "geess" I think it's saying "geez" and I think it's getting annoyed with me for always talking about how much I love the east coast. I bet it's from CA!

The Rogers Family said...

Wow! Take me back to the 80's! The pictures are fantastic! I loved checking them out, and then the music took me back to my little rabbit, with the sunroof open, driving up and around provo, sundance, and springville canyons in the fall. Of course I had Depeche Mode was playing. My girlfriend at my side (now my wife). I think I'll have to have Alison sit down and look at your blog with me. That should complete the memory.

Thanks for sharing!

Love Eric

'behemom' - be a he-Mom. He-Moms are tougher the He-Man!

Emily Anne Leyland said...

Eric, you crack me up. I love your comments. You know what is so funny? I wanted a rabbit soooo bad before we moved to England. That was going to be my first car *sigh* it never happened. :)

Man- my verifier is sooo smart. It knows everyone!!! Smart people get smart verifiers ;)

Leciawp said...

Kelley said...
