Many get sad this time of year. Summer is dwindling and our days of sun kissed skin will soon be done for the time being. I am not one of those people. The minute August hits, all I can think about is all things fall. Please tell me you get this way, too. The slight chill in the air, pumpkin spice everything, and apple picking with a delicious donut and warm cider makes fall one of the best seasons. There are so many apple orchards in and around Lansing to help you get your fall on.
