Happy Fall, Y'all!


It might not feel like it here in the south, but today is officially the first day of Autumn. No. Really, it is!! So get out your sweaters and boots. Fire up the hot chocolate and homemade cookies. Get ready for long hot baths after days of hiking through the woods and mountains full of colorful Fall foliage. This is happening! https://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/facts-about-september-equinox.html
