If  you love the outdoors, this past weekend was the best.

The weather was fantastic and so were the people all over Northeast Missouri and Western Illinois. Fall Color Drives and Folk Life Festivals were everywhere.

I love this time of year and so many people made all this past weekend one to remember. Not only weather wise but food, friends, family...it all came together to make it great.

Thank you's  to all the hardworking people who make these great weekends happen in our neck of the woods..which were awesome by the way.
