Random Sunday: Fall Leaves At Your Door


Hope you all had a great Halloween and are starting November off on a sugar high! 🙂

It’s fall right now, but in Hawaii, it’s obvious that we only have one distinct season for majority of the year–summer. One of the great reasons to travel to/go to college on the mainland U.S. is having the opportunity to experience spring, fall and winter. For me, I don’t want to be stuck in a snow storm, but I DO want to see fall: The orange, yellow and red colors of the leaves changing is so pretty from the pictures I’ve seen (and this week the news showed a live look at the White House surrounded by autumn leaves; it was SO nice).

I may be in luck to see my fall leaves, though: For $20, startup Ship Foliage will mail a bundle of three fall leaves right to your doorstep. Considering shipping fees, that $20 can easily skyrocket to $40 for Hawaii residents, and while three leaves is a bit tight (why not give at LEAST five?) it’s the cheapest way to “experience” fall without paying for a plane ticket.

If you live in a warm climate, what do you think of this idea? Is it worth the money? For the readers who’ve seen fall leaves, tell me about it! Is it as nice as pictures and TV make it out to be? Let me know in the comments!
