Hello all! The temps are starting to cool down and it's the perfect time to work outside! You may not think of fall as a big "fix up" time of year, but it's one of my favorite times to address outdoor projects.  No humidity and temps in the 60's are ideal outside working weather for me!

This is the time of year that the list of projects I want to accomplish before the holidays gets reeeeally long. I always want our home to function well and look it's best during the holidays!
