Safe Driving Tips for Winter

Fall is being left behind and winter coming into full force, and who is not overcome by this season’s romance? Certainly, stores set out to draw in shoppers with material desires, but the landscape too is turning, evolving past the browns and golds, the oranges and reds that are so poetically picturesque, and refining those colors into something more elegant – a colder beauty that appeals aesthetically and yet also compels us to seek comfort indoors, turning on the heating and curling up, snug … [Read more...]
