Happy Labor Day weekend to you all! September is here already and what an awesome month to be in the Greater Prescott Area. The weather is beginning to cool off in the evenings and the days are slowly becoming dark earlier. The feeling of autumn being right around the corner is evident with the trees starting to show the very early stages of changing colors. We are so blessed to live in a western climate that has mild season changes. Make sure to get out and enjoy the beautiful area we live in.
There are a lot of great events not only this weekend but also the whole through month. If you are planning a trip to Prescott this month there are many unique lodging choices in the Prescott area. You can get all the local information on events, lodging and so much more by visiting theresadesoto.com for a community connection. I hope to see you at The Fair on the Square Arts and Crafts Show this weekend in downtown Prescott. And remember, I am your friendly home town Realtor and I can help with all your real estate needs whether selling your current home, buying your dream home….. Or both! I am making dreams come true…..One home at a time!
More people are born in September than any other month!
There are flowers enough in the summertime,
More flowers than I can remember—
But none with the purple, gold, and red
That dye the flowers of September!
—Mary Howitt (1799-1888)
