The Guide: October


Fall is officially here! We’re big fans of this season and all the fun activities and events happening! This time of year life seems to be moving at such a rapid pace, one that doesn’t slow down until after the New Year. We always want to freeze life for just a little while so we can savor all the fun that Fall brings with the anticipation of Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner – oh, my!
