I am finally sitting down to write this letter and the calendar indicates it is November 1, 2013. Why does this always come as a surprise to me? Halloween has come and gone and my beautiful ceramic pumpkin is still in the box in storage. Although I haven’t heard any Christmas music yet, I know that’s right around the corner too. Frankly, I could listen to it all year long. Please don’t tell me I’m the only one? And since Christmas is in winter, this “fall” letter needed to get done!
