Welcome to October!

Listen!  The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, we have had our Summer evenings, now for October eves.
- Humbert Wolfe, Poet 1885-1940

Welcome to October, the month of harvest festivals, changing and falling leaves, Oktoberfest, first frosts, and sometimes first snows, although some of us are hoping the snow will hold off until Christmas Day, while others say Bring it On!  All this change makes October feel like the beginning of a new year.
In this month's newsletter, you will find some recipes for some fun and ghoulish treats to add to your Halloween celebrations and more! If you've been thinking of listing your home, there is still time to get your house on the market before the snow hits, so contact me today and I will answer all of your real estate questions.
