Shifting gears...

The passing of Labor Day, for many, marks the unofficial end of summer and a time of shifting gears. We look back on the season past and forward to what lies ahead. 

So, whether you're heading back to school, back to work, back to schedules, or back to the grind...don't forget to take a few precious moments to soak in the delightful-ness that autumn brings. 

Here's what I'm looking forward to this fall: pumpkins pumpkins pumpkins (every type, every size, every shape, every color)...a rainbow of mums, cool nights, scarves, changing leaves (particularly at UI's Arboretum in Moscow), shorter days (after the long days of summer, I actually look forward to them), pots of soup and warm bread, and the return of the green-queen-of-coffee's Egg Nog Latte...rich, decadent, and thankfully not available all year long ;) 

P.S. The next two Saturdays in Palouse are big! Saturday, Sept. 10th, the Bank Left Gallery & Bistro hosts an art exhibit opening (free to the public) and dinner (by reservation only) for national artist Carrie Vielle. The following Saturday, Sept. 17th, is Palouse Days! - the culmination of summer and ALL things Palouse! For more info, see Palouse Events above. 

Have a great week!
