Fall is here and pumpkin season has arrived! April from The Country Cupboard in Long Lake http://countrycakecupboard has created another delicious healthy gluten free recipe for us and our clients to enjoy. We tried it over the weekend ~ Oh Yummy!

Also, note as the fall weather becomes brisker….remember your moisturizer as you may need a bit more or something a little heaver for protection.  And, don’t forget that sunscreen, the leaves may be turning colors and floating to the ground however the sun is still present!

Happy Halloween!!!
