Over the long Labor Day I had some free time on my hands. I decided, with the chill in the air, it was time to bring out my pumpkin spice candles. I posted a picture of it to Facebook and Instagram, and instantly got some backlash from the fall haters out there. You would have thought that I single-handedly killed summer for everyone out there.

Some people told me it was way too soon to be bringing out the pumpkin spice. Others told me that I had inspired them to do the same. I think once September hits, it's OK to bring out the fall decor. I'm not talking about decorating for Halloween at this point...but, if that's what you want to do then I think you should let your freak flag fly. I am saying that it's OK to "pumpkin it up" in your household and start making your fall crafts! I've already started and I'm happy to report that I have no regrets.
