Deals: Amazon Prime Day, Best Halloween Movies & More
It is finally feeling fall – leaves in town are turning (and I’m needing to rake and compost them), I’m pulling out my favorite LLBean Flannel, apples are in season, and we are starting to really think about Halloween. My kids and I were talking the other day about what age is still appropriate to trick or treat – and what this year’s Halloween celebration will look like. Good news is that it does sound like handing out candy (as long as we wear our masks) will be an okay thing to do.
