    Welcome to Fall!

    PUBLISHER’S LETTER

    Welcome to Fall! I AM ESPECIALLY GLAD to welcome autumn’s cool breezes this year after all those long hot summer days. There’s no better way to celebrate the season than with a wonderful local festival. You don’t have to drive two hours to the mountains for fall fun. Avondale Estates’ AutumnFest has all the best festival mixings—great live music, fine arts and crafts, delicious food and special kid-friendly activities. You’ll find a schedule of events and more information about this local fall tradition in our cover story (page 9).

    Another great way to experience autumn is to head to our local seven-acre forest, Wood- lands Garden, an urban preserve and sanctuary right on Scott Boulevard. Look inside to find out how you can enjoy and help preserve this wonderful natural resource (page18). If you want to create your very own inviting backyard living area, read our tips from a local landscaping company (page 14).

    There are many activities for you and the whole family this season. Plan your autumn adventure with the Calendar of Events (page 38). In this issue we also highlight several businesses that can help you as you craft your individual style inside your home—a long- time treasure-hunting destination that offers old and new accessories for your home (page 37), a one-stop home design destination with a full line of furnishings and hand-crafted gifts (page 20), tips about paint selection from a local painting contractor (page 27), and kitchen renovation (page 31). If you are thinking about moving to a new home, you can read about an innovative housing con- tractor with deep Decatur roots (page 34).

    We hope this issue of Decatur Living helps you enjoy the wonderful things autumn brings to Decatur.
