We blinked, and our brief autumn is now turning into the holiday season! Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday to enjoy on the East End, especially if we get some warm days. Crawl through the wineries and craft breweries for the latest delicious releases. Browse the boutiques and antique shops for one-of-a-kind gifts. Shop the Christmas tree farms for THE tree, beautiful wreaths and other decorations.
Embrace the fun and, yes, chaos. Enjoy the time with the family, create new memories and Savor the Season!
Happy November! Now that we have turned the page of the calendar, it seems that the autumn weather has finally arrived. Time for the snuggly sweaters and warm socks! Have you noticed that I have changed the title of this feature? It now better reflects what I hope to say in this opening to the East End Experience. Life is a journey…one that deserves to be enjoyed and savored. Stop and smell the roses, or the pumpkin spice latte, if you prefer. It’s not a race, but if you must treat it so, make it a marathon. Whatever you do – remember to enjoy it! The little things really do matter, so hug your kid, call your mom, pet the dog, and just breeeeaaathe. You will feel better for it, I promise. ~JBM
