If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that a tree with strong roots is important when the wind starts blowing. And the wind feels maddeningly strong as ever at moments for even the oldest and most established trees. Do the young trees even stand a chance, you might wonder?

To you, who has weathered the storm this year, we want to invite you to join us in looking forward to the future.

Here are a few quotes we wanted to share with you as well as a message of hope: we are here for you on an individual level and to help you protect your business, which is in essence an extension of you. We are here for you and will continue to stand with you in the gusty winds.

“If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour.” -Victoria Erickson

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald

“You will always harvest what you plant.” 

“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.” -Oscar Wilde

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” -Albert Camus

“Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love– that makes life and nature harmonize. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit.” -George Eliot

“At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honey-sweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.” – Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters on Cezanne

Fall is here, and a season of change feels so refreshing.
