Hello October!   I'm totally looking forward to seeing lots of those blue October skies, breathing in lots of crisp fall air, and sporting a sweatshirt in the evenings.   Yup - I love fall.   Smells of cider, sights of pumpkins & mums, & scarecrow decorations. It's also the season of festivals.   Be it apple, cranberry, pumpkin or foliage - we've certainly got you covered in the festival department.   Enjoy!
