August is upon us, and it's that time of year when our senses get confused. Bath & Body Works is already rolling out candles and soap scented with cinnamon, pumpkin, and vanilla. Families have started making their Thanksgiving plans. Home Goods is ready with fall decoration and Flannels everywhere are out on the floor.
