This weekend is a busy one! There are a ton of fun events to choose from! The weather does look like
it will be on the cooler side which will be nice. Maybe it will feel perfect for picking up one of those Pumpkin Spice Lattes? I know that they have been out for a little bit. However, I refuse to get one until it feels like fall!
