The first day of fall is a week away and we are so excited. Don’t you feel like this year just flew by? We thought the same.
Fall is a favorite time of year for this writer for countless reasons. Not only is the foliage beautiful, but we can enjoy seasonal activities and treats like pumpkin drinks and baked goods, cozy sweaters, peeping leaves, corn mazes, and more. Then, of course, there’s Halloween and all the fun things that come with the holidays, like ghost stories, haunted houses, scary movies, costumes and tricks (or if you’re past the age of tricks, get a free excuse to eat extra candy).
We could go on and on. Fall is a special time of year, and there’s nothing quite like experiencing it in New England.
