I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! I can’t believe summer is over, and fall has arrived with this chilly morning and temps in the 60s. Don’t get me wrong I’m excited for all things pumpkin and apple, but those who know me well understand that summer is my absolute favorite season and I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to these warm days. To make the most of these cool days I’ve got a new 411 in the 616 filled with some great events, local links and my latest obsessions this week. I hope you have a wonderful week!
