Fall in Love with November {local events}

Fall has to be my favorite season (I know, I know – every girl says that!).  But it’ really true.  I’m so happy that we are finally having cooler weather too. I’ve already pulled out my hunter boots and scarves and lit our fireplace a night or two.  It’s the BEST.

Fall is also a great time to get out and explore . There are so many festive events in the community: lots of holiday boutiques to jump start your holiday shopping and support great causes, wine tasting events, yoga classes and a plethora of marathons, half marathons, 10ks and 5ks! Fall’s a great time to get out and run since it’s finally under 80˚- which also means, no excuses! 😉

Here’s a look at some of the local events that we are looking forward to this month. Let us know if we missed any!
