autumn warmth

September ... we love September! As summer ends, we can count on crisp sunny days and cooler nights to provide a good night's sleep. We can still hang l aundry on the line, enjoy outdoor meals with family and friends, and maybe make time for one more camping trip before the rains come.  

September is also a good month to recharge, re-evaluate or even change our health routines.  Someone once said, “When it comes to diet and health, be proactive not reactive”.  Great advice. Going into the Fall and Winter seasons armed with good health is what we all want.
