Natasha {Del Oro Senior 2011}

Don't let these good looks fool you.
She has brains that could put those legs to shame!
Not only is she in the National Honor Society,

Well Hello Fall,
So happy to finally see you again. I've really missed you.
Why don't you make yourself at home while I make you a mug of hot apple cider and later
we'll go pick pumpkins and make pie, play in crunchy leaves, go to football games and make bonfires.
I look forward to many weeks together and have many plans for us, so make sure you plan on staying through November.

Your gracious host as long as you'd like to stay.
