Fall in the Town of Noel, MO

Well the leaves are changing, there is a crispness in the air & everyone is a little cheerier. No it is not because the gas prices are going down (ok it is not JUST because gas prices are going down. This is the time of year when everyone is a little more patient, laid back and we seem to appreciate we made it another year. (ABOVE: Picture of an autumn morning).

Pulling into Noel, MO from the north side of town you are welcomed by the Noel sign. The one lane bridge seems to transitions you into the small town feel.

This picture shows the entire Main Street. It is a rolling hill. But Noel does have everything one would need. A grocery store, post office, hardware and feed store, movie rental, gas stations (4 to be exact) and a bakery (you must have your sweets!!)

The quaintness does not end with the town's name or establishments. It seems as if each house, tree and leaf is placed in a way to invite you to come visit or perhaps imagine staying. Even the trees seem to be taking on the Christmas cheer, as they change from a green to marigolds to a crimson red before falling to the ground like crunchy snowflakes.

With the exception of the sunrise, these were all taken on an 1 hour lunch. So go out, slow down and appreciate your town, surroundings and the season!!
