Fall is in the air and all around us! From the beautiful changing leaves to the pumpkin spice in your morning coffee, there is no denying the season has come for cozy sweaters, Friday night lights, and comfort foods. Speaking of comfort, our friends at Danzeizen Dairy are just rolling out their warm drinks for the cool weather months, stacked up high with toppings like their fun crazy shakes, or nice and simple if you make a big mess like I do. I know the grandkids and I will be making quite a few visits over the next few months to sample all the flavors they have on offer!

The kiddos are back in school this week after a very extended time away since last spring. Let’s all keep vigilant in the mornings, lunchtimes, and afternoons, as we are going to be seeing young people walking around daily!

I know we are all about up to here with the flyers, ads, pop-ups, and pretty much all things political at a this point in the election year! I know I am. We are counting down the days until it all goes away. It won’t be long now, but it is still so important that you make your voice heard! Please be sure to vote! Listed below are the sites where you can early vote or drop your early ballots. Vote! Vote! Vote!
