Here we are winding down the month of July. Time sure flies when you're having fun! While summer officially ends in the middle of September, many folks consider back-to-school time the end of the season. Of course others may try to squeeze in those warm weather days as long as they can. I can't say that I blame them! Either way, autumn will be here before we know it. To be honest it's actually one of my favorite seasons, so I do look forward to it. It's the cold winter weather afterwards that I can do without. Being a bunch of bookworms here, we'll also be introduced to brand new books that welcome in the change of season. In fact, we've already gotten a head start with our latest read, Pumpkin Patch Blessings by Kim Washburn.
