Peace, Love, Link Up #021

Welcome back to Peace, Love, Link Up! Word must be getting around about our little linky, because last week we set a new record number of links with 74! You guys make this happen, so with that in mind, here’s a heartfelt thanks!

It may be too early to get excited about, but not too early to think about. FALL! Overpriced pumpkin spice lattes, apple picking, and mulled cider are just a few of things that I love about this season coming up. But before I get caught up in all that mania, there’s one more cookout to be had! I guess the lazy days of summer are winding down!

As always, please grab a button and tell all of your friends!

Happy posting!
