I don’t know about you, I welcomed the cooler temps this past weekend brought us. What a relief from the hot temps of July and August! 

Cooler or Fall type weather always puts me in the mood for gorgeous Saturday mornings spent walking from booth to booth at the local arts and crafts festivals! If you are not interested in seeing what the local artists are creating, the people watching is amazing as well! Grab a coffee, find a bench and settle in for some good ol fashioned people watching! 

So what’s happening around Springfield this week?
