Celebrate the Seasons with Me!

I am revealing my Autumn "to do" list for 2012.

Sorry for the delay, I had a few distractions. I watched as many speeches as possible from the Democratic National Convention.  I also discovered a little show called, "Gossip Girl," and could not make time for anything else and finally, I am still hacking up a lung from that tragic cold I caught about 2 weeks ago.

The good news: During that entire time, I thought long and hard, listened to your suggestions and came up with a very good to-do list!

I encourage the rest of you to try to knock a few of these items off YOUR Autumn to-do list. I think together, we just might have enough for an interesting end of the year!
