A to Z: Harvest

September has gone and past! Fall is already here in Utah and I couldn't be more excited, although I am worried that snow will come soon cause the wind is so biting! And there's already snow atop Mount Timp! I have very mixed feelings about it cause it's so beautiful and the weather makes me happy, but I do miss having an actual period of autumn weather. One very sad thing about the end of September is the dying of my beautiful garden. So this book is an ode to the beautiful harvest we had this season. I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. Hand illustrating and making a book was a stressful process for me. One mistake could bring you back to the starting point! But here it is and in four months, baby Hyde is going to fall in love with fruits and veggies!
