Friday Five – First Day of Fall Edition

FRI-slay! This week our Friday Five is celebrating the fall equinox, which is today, September 22. We couldn’t be more excited for sweater season, pumpkin spice lattes and 70-80 degree temps (Arizona’s version of fall weather). This week’s big media wins are paired with our favorite fall GIFs.
