A wave of pumpkin spice, apple cider, and maple cream everything is coming, and some of us can't wait. Fall in East Texas is the best!  The pumpkin patches are about to open too and we've got the info.

It won't be long and the pumpkin patch photos will be all over social media.  Next to bluebonnets in the spring, this will be the best photo opp backdrop of the year.  And the weather will be cooler, clothes will be more fun because we can actually wear sleeves and pants, and the pumpkiny lattes and ales will be flowing.  This will be a great fall.
