Hey friends! Here we go! Fall is here and our wonderful local events are slowly beginning to ramp up. There are some really fun things happening tonight, this weekend, and some great experiences coming up that you should definitely RSVP for. Personally, I’m started to get starry-eyed thinking about pumpkin patches, corn mazes, woolly coats, boots, overcast days, hot coffee and tea, holiday feels, and just getting cozy with our beautiful community. Have fun! Spread the word and feel free to submit your upcoming event info! xo Jen
