Where did the summer go? We somehow find ourselves midway through October and we are left scratching our heads wondering where the time went. No matter how much we try to savor it, summer always seems to pass by in the blink of an eye. Nevertheless, October is here meaning fall is in full swing. The leaves are starting to change and we now get to enjoy those cool, crisp fall mornings.
