It seems like every weekend is becoming more and more exciting as we go on! However, this has also made me realize that summer is soon coming to a close. The mornings filled with cool breezes carry on throughout the day. Even the leaves are starting to change color, but Jersey City isn’t ready for summer to end yet!
