Poll of the Month

Vote in our monthly polls! Every month we will be asking a question and post the final results in the following month's newsletter. Have a question you would like us to put out to the masses? DM us your question on Instagram, @ARPMrents, and your question may be selected next month!

In September we asked what our reader's favorite part of fall. Again, we had a ton of differing responses, but this one was our winner!

Nothing beats that aesthetic, bonus points if you grab yourself a iced pumpkin cream chai latte and just sit and enjoy the colors and crisp air. Truly the best.
