Summer into Fall

I adore the summer, just as everyone does I guess. But living in the mountains of North Carolina means that in August the mornings start to get cool and we start thinking about the fall. One of the things I love best as the days cool off is to go for long walks in the forest. We have a lot of forests around here, and a lot of waterfalls, and one of my favorite places is the state park at Chimney Rock.

Another thing I love to do when the weather gets cooler is to go to bookstores. We have a beautiful two story Barnes and Noble at the Asheville Mall and I am going to be part of their regional book festival on Saturday, August 19th. So if you happen to be in Asheville that afternoon, come on by. We'll be there from 2-4 PM chatting about books of all genres and generally having a great time.

Whatever you do as summer turns to fall, I hope it brings you joy.
