  Its hard to believe that we are entering the last 6 weeks of 2017. But, I must actively procrastinate; pushing thoughts of holly, jingle bells, white-bearded gentleman, and gift shopping off until December. Happy Thanksgiving and Shop Local for that next big holiday on the horizon. 
Thank you to our Premier &
