The most wonderful time of the year.....

Boo!! I am happy to report that everything is done....well for now!! I still have things coming in, but everything that we have in stock right now....is out! We have had a very positive reaction to all of our hard work....I have not heard ONE "Halloween already" all week!!! For so many of us....this is the most wonderful time of the year!! We are lucky to live in an area where we have "seasons"...and each one of them has their own magic. It is so exciting to see those first daffodils poke through the ground, and the forsythia start to bloom. The first time you look up at the mountain and see that green hue spreading all over the trees. And, although the heat and humidity are NOT my favorite, Summer has it's own charms. The first lightning bug sighting, the flowers in the garden, sitting on the patio for dinner....and my beloved swimming pool!!! Even Winter in the great Northeast has it's charms....they can wear off pretty quickly....but you have to admit....those very first snowflakes are magical!! There is nothing like a good book and a cup of tea to put you in a good place!!! While all of those things have their merits....if we were to be honest...they all pale in comparison to Fall. I don't think anyone can find any fault in this time of year!!! Sometimes, spending 12 hours in the heat (and humidity) of August to decorate for the Fall and Halloween season can be exhausting. But, then, I see all of my Happy Halloween Lovers....and it is all worth while!!! I don't want you to dismiss the end of the Summer season....by all means...ENJOY!!! Get in as much "outside" time as you can....have a picnic, go for a walk, sit outside and look at the stars....but just remember....when that Fall Fever hits...we are here for you!!! Have a great weekend!!!
