According to the transforming tree leaves around the city, it is officially fall. And we’re almost giddy about the changing of the seasons. Yes, we love the summer months of sunshine and sunscreen.

We’re relishing the cooler temperatures in the same way we look forward to the first spring flower buds. Bring on the snow and skiing! We’re ready. —Natasha Gardner
