Fall officially started on Friday and PraisetheLord, right?

I haven't started decorating for fall yet. Isn't that kind of blasphemous? Usually I've got all the prints on the walls and the pumpkins on the end-tables by Labor Day. It's still been in the 80s and 90s most days so I just don't "feel" it. This weekend, it finally dipped into the 50s/60s, which I realize isn't usual. It's only the end of September. But I'm so much more of a fall and winter person these days. I don't thrive in the summer.

Getting out my fall decorations...which I did at least dig out of the shed on Saturday...means that I can reflect back on falls gone by and I can even see some of the fun gifts I've gotten from past Pumpkin Swaps. It's such a reminder of genuine connection and friendship that's been ALL facilitated through blogging. I even bought my pumpkin Scentsy warmer from a blogger!

If you love fall and if you love connecting through social media, this is for you...
