full of cheer.

"By all these lovely tokens, September days are here,

with summer's best of weather and autumn's best of cheer."

- Helen Hunt Jackson

Did you feel that yesterday? That perfectly-timed chill in the air, which breezed in for a few hours on the first day of fall, filled me with cheer.

Foreign Buyers Spent $20 Billion Less on U.S. Real Estate

Travel restrictions associated with the coronavirus kept many foreign would-be buyers out of the U.S. last year - and that kept billions of their dollars out of the housing market. Home purchases by international buyers and recent immigrants plummeted 33% from the previous year, according to a recent National Association of Realtors® report. International purchasers spent roughly $54.4 billion on U.S. real estate -down considerably from about $74 billion a year earlier. Still, that doesn’t appear to have hurt the housing market overall.

The Best Farmers Market in Every State

Getting from-the-field fresh produce and artisan baked goods has never been easier, thanks to farmers markets that have sprung up around the country. Here's a list of the best farmers market in every state.
