Welcome back after a long weekend!  It is almost unfathomable to believe that the fall season is officially here.  It seems like only a few weeks ago, kids were getting out of school and we were filled with plans and expectations for the summer break.  And with PA temperatures in the high 80s, the season still feels and looks like summer.  I'm not complaining.

I took a short three day vacation over the weekend for a little relaxation and retail therapy.  Strange as it sounds, my mom and I drove for close to two and a half hours to come home with a vehicle full of cornstalks, pumpkins, and fall essentials.
