AUTUMN IS ALMOST UPON US!!!

Hot summer temperatures are FINALLY cooling down. Lush greenery is now morphing into gorgeous varieties of red, orange, and yellow. I have even spotted a few pumpkin spiced lattes here and there, all hinting to one thing: the autumn season we call “fall” is almost upon us. This third season of the year officially begins Thursday, September 22, 2016. Memories of our beach vacations and summer concerts are fading into the distance, as we prepare for cardigan, boots, and the like. With this in mind, I have compiled a few ideas to get you into the “fall spirit”. Read on and BE INSPIRED!!! “Happy Fall!”
