The leaves are taking over 🍁 I'm not sure If I'm just noticing it more this year or it's an epidemic! Where is Summer?!?! I'm kidding. I love Fall and it's pretty gorgeous outside. I saw these kids on Saturday that looked extremely less than satisfied as they bagged several garbage bags filled with leaves. It was like watching an everlasting stream of orange falling from the sky. Now what?
