We're not in the Carolinas any more...

 There are several things that keep reminding me that we are not in NC anymore.

They have the most beautiful and ugly trees here. We have one like this in our front yard.

There are NO mosquitos! We have spent more time outside since we have been here then we did all summer in NC. The kids and I all get huge welts when we are bitten by mosquitos! I haven't seen one!

There aren't alot of bugs period. No gnats flying around your face when you are outside. Not alot of flies either. I know this seems silly, but it is something I noticed right away.

No humidity. WOW~ My hair is very thankful.

    The downtown area is so sweet. It is not far from our house, and there is a farmers market there on Saturday mornings. I can't wait to spend a day down there meandering around.
    The leaves are already starting to fall. Autumn evidently arrives a little earlier here in OH. There are yellow leaves strown across our backyard, and Miley seems very happy to not be dealing with the NC heat.
    Fall is whispering that winter is on it's way. We're not in the Carolinas anymore!

Oh, I'm jealous! No mosquitos? I didn't know that was possible. Enjoy those temps, we're still sweltering down here.
