A Fall Kind of Friday

A Fall Kind of Friday

BY: RACHEL WUMKES Happy Fall, Y’all! It’s officially my favorite time of year.  I know I say that in the summer, too, but I think fall might rank just a tad higher.  I can’t help but love absolutely everything about it.  The cooler temps, the beauty in the changing leaves, the taste of a crisp apple.

Avast Ye! And Read this Blog!

BY: RACHEL WUMKES Unless you speak fluent Pirate, you may not know what that title means.  In my feeble attempt to write a super-cool, totally awesome post about the upcoming Pirate Festival, I fell down the rabbit hole on the interwebs looking up Pirate terms and phrases. Thus, a 30-minute conversation with myself ensued...
