Hello, Crunch!

It is officially apple cider and pumpkin pie season! Acorns have been making their way into little fists on the way to the park the past few days, and there is a definite crunch to my step and crisp, delicious smell to the air – especially today, after the first rain of the season. Fall…

I’d Pack That, Too, If I Could
