How I love everything from apple picking, vibrant foliage displays and crunching leaves beneath my feet to the chill in the air that sends me back to grab my favorite sweater and tug on a pair of jeans. Sassy boots, long sleeves, the smell of bonfires and the celebration of no more mosquitoes make the upcoming fall season a favorite of mine. Want to enjoy this and more in Greater Lansing?
