It’s the end of November and I have no idea where the time has gone. Tomorrow we welcome in December and soon we welcome winter. Say goodbye to pumpkin spice everything and bring on the peppermint vibes. feel free to share any plans y’all got for winter because I need to get a start on that as well.

October was packed with so many activities: from haunted houses to sipping pumpkin lattes, visiting a few pumpkin patches and eating yummy roasted corn straight from the farms, dancing on haystacks and nibbling on kettle corn until the skies dimmed to dusk.
