Posted by Your Community Mama at 1:17 PM

Happy Fall Friends,

I'm so excited for Fall and all the good things that come along with it.  While I do love summer, Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year.  I just hope that it will stick around long enough for us to really enjoy it.  There are some pretty fun events going on in our area, so I hope you'll check them out and have some FUN!!  Are there more events out there?  Of course there are, but as I say "I am small potatoes," but I do love sharing, so if you know of an event that our friends would love, please email me the details at

Find Your Fun Below,
