Happy November! I’m typing this post in a maxi dress while sitting on my front porch with a glass of ice water and Biscuit (my dog) next to me. The sky is a perfect shade of blue. The sun is warm and bright. It’s 83 degrees – in November. Atlanta has had record-breaking heat over the past couple weeks and I’m not mad about it. It’s like a bonus summer!
Are you experiencing fluky fall weather too? If you want out, I’ve got the remedy.
