Lawrenceburg Fall Fest Details Released!

There’s something about fall that inspires little weekend getaways and  day excursions. Maybe it’s that it’s no longer oppressively hot out, or maybe I know we’ll be holed up for winter soon… But either way, I’m excited to start planning a few of our little outings, especially now that we have the little girl who loves seeing and doing new fun things!

I just got this press release about Lawrenceburg’s Fall Feat coming up here soon, and it sounds like SO much fun! Thought I’d share!
