As much as I have always loved spending long, relaxing days at the pool or beach, long hours of daylight, and and being able to read a book outside without freezing my butt off, there is just something magical about the fall.  Warm flannels, cider and donuts, colorful leaves, and great running and camping weather are some of my favorite things about the season…but also…HALLOWEEN!
