When in Rome Do What The Romans Do

It could be my unconscious attempt to distract myself from the fact that whether I am ready to admit it or not, summer is over. It could just be that it’s my favorite time of year to snuggle up on my couch with a good book in hand, and therefore will spend a lot more time indoors. Whatever it is, it’s here again.
