Opening The Window

Even just a little Most people around me know that fall is my most favorite time of the year. I’m willing to sacrifice and have stuffy, runny noses and sneezing to let the fresh cool air come into my home. There is something about breathing in the crisp Carolina air that just makes you feel…
