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!

Despite almost breaking the record number days in a heat wave earlier this month, I can feel a definite chill to the air some nights. 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!

Simple Spring Decor

Spring is finally here! It’s time to kick the winter blues, and there is no better way than decorating for the season!

But where do you start? When I was little and it was time to decorate for the seasons, we went into the storage closet and took out the cardboard box that had ” Spring” written on it in black magic marker. The only problem with that now is that we are trying to adult but we don’t have a box of decorations yet!

The craft store seemed like a logical place to start. Luckily, we arrived just as the store was stocking for summer decor, so all the remaining spring items were marked at an insane deal of 60% off. That, plus a trip to the local dollar store, found us with everything we needed to make these simple but eye-catching decorations.
