Every season has a new routine that takes a little getting used to, even though we do the same damn thing four times a year, every year, for the love of Pete. Summer is officially over – I call it official when I receive an email announcing the number of shopping days left ‘til Christmas. Gah!
As the leaves turn, this change in routine means what exactly? Getting off the patio-drinks-after-work train? Heading back to the gym more regularly? Eating hearty, root-vegetable slow cooker meals? I know one thing for sure: Boots! Boots! Boots!
The best thing about bloggers is that together, they have all the answers. Here are 6 ways to prepare for the cooler days and longer nights ahead:
