The leaves have started to fall and it has gotten a little chilly out there, which means Fall is officially here! Even though it seems like these few months have just flown by Thanksgiving is fast approaching with only one week left! If you haven't gotten in the fall spirit, it's not too late to get out there and enjoy that pumpkin spice lattes.
