For the first time this year, it officially feels like winter in Fayetteville today.
Not a lot of snow fell, but the familiar chill was heavy in the air this morning, so much so that you could smell it. Did anyone else notice?
With Christmas just over three weeks away, it’s about time we felt a little bit of winter around here. I know it’s not everyone’s favorite season, but if it weren’t for winter, how could you fully appreciate spring?
There are lots of holiday-related specials on the list this week, which makes perfect sense this time of year. Shop with these awesome local places, why don’t you?
