Fall is finally here! I love the autumn season and it’s my very favorite time of the year – no matter where I am. The best of autumn includes temperatures that are FINALLY cooling off and a crispness in the air that I absolutely love.

Picture yourself on a pristine coastal beach, where the sand caresses your toes, the ocean breeze whispers through your hair, and the rhythmic sounds of the crashing waves lull you into a state of bliss. Ahhh…
As you walk along the shoreline, with the warmth of the sun and the scent of the salty air, all your cares and burdens gently melt away. Then, when the sun begins its descent, painting the sky with hues of pink and orange, you realize there is nowhere else you would rather be.
