Slay All Day in Round Rock

Fall has arrived in Central Texas.  The mornings are cooler, and there’s less humidity.  The time for sweaters and boots is fast approaching, and I am here for it.  Experiencing some semblance of fall weather is one of the things that I enjoy about living in here.  I’ve been able to wear sweaters and boots longer.  However, with COVID-19 still […]
