It’s not even September yet, but I’m itching to put out my fall decorations. That is no surprise to my family, as I typically beg to decorate for Christmas the day after Halloween. I can appreciate that each season and holiday deserves its time to shine, but I have my favorites, and since they only come around once a year, I like to maximize the celebration. My pumpkins and gourds wait patiently in the linen closet, but every time I pull out a fresh towel, I am tempted to get started on my fall decorating. I will wait, for fear of being chastised by my family, but August sure is taking her sweet time.
