The return to normalcy in the age of COVID-19 comes with plenty of caveats and uncertainty. The things you used to do before COVID times feels like a distant memory, where people didn’t have to weigh the potential risks and comfort levels of doing certain activities you never gave much thought to before.

The temperature continues to get cooler in the evenings to justify having a light sweater or jacket when you’re out––at least depending on where you are in the world. Even pumpkin flavored everything is making a comeback with a vengeance!
