Fall is my favorite time of year. Though I miss the beautiful sunshine of summer, I do love the changing leaves, stormy weather, and the cozy nights of fall. October is Spooky Time and, in my opinion, the true onset of fall here in the Pacific Northwest. As fall continues into November and December, we enjoy our holiday gatherings. This year may be different as we continue to practice social distancing and stay healthy. I traditionally host Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve, and will continue to do so for those who wish to attend. It will be a wonderful change to host a gathering and I look forward to seeing all the bright and cheerful faces of our friends and loved ones.
