Fall Back

Fall has always been my favorite time of year - after the long hot days of summer there's a bracing nip in the morning air, and routines return to normal as people return from vacations.

Fall is a great time for new beginnings - the new school year, the opportunity to learn something new. It's also time to focus on completing the goals you set at the start of the year, with just enough time to bring things to an orderly conclusion by year end. A time to reconnect with friends and start looking ahead to plans for the coming year.
