The Start of Fall and the Giveaway Winner

Yesterday was September 1st – definitely a mini-holiday in my book!  I don’t care what the calendar says or how the moon and stars are aligned or blah, blah, blah – September is the start of fall, people! 

Put the Pumpkins in Order

Normally I would have decorated the whole house yesterday – but we’re living with my parents.  I’m pretty bummed about not being able to decorate for the season, but hey, at least I get to experience a full New England fall for the first time in 9 years!  That and my Woodwick “Autumn Harvest” candle will have to get me through it. :) 

Did anyone decorate yesterday?  I’m totally jealous if so. :)

The real point of this post is to announce the blogiversary giveaway winner: RACHEL from A Steady Rain!!     Rachel is another PA transplant and she has an inspiring blog for Christian women.  Congratulations, Rachel! I let time get away from me and was supposed to announce this on Tuesday – sorry about that!  Send me an e-mail at blessedlifeblog {at} gmail {dot} com with your address!  ( picked her as #26 out of 41 – I don’t remember how to do a screen shot without my husband here.  I may be in my twenties but as far as computers go, I may as well be in the Stone Age.) 

We’re traveling to PA this weekend since my husband has Monday off.  It’s kinda bittersweet, since we had an accepted offer on our house and we thought we’d be going to sign papers this weekend.  However, the couple backed out on us and now we are back to square one.  I am so nervous this house will never sell and we’ll be in limbo for a long time.  I keep reminding myself (about 1,000 times a day) that God has always and WILL always take care of us).  We could definitely use prayers for our house to sell! 

Even though we’re not going to sign any papers, I’m looking forward to lots of quality time with my in-laws and this lovely lady.  Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone! See ya! :)


  1. WooHoo!!! Thank you so much!! I'll e-mail you right away! =) I'll be praying for the house situation!! Have a great Labor Day!!

  2. I am with you - yesterday marked the start of fall! I am planning to get some new fall decorations tomorrow and will be decorating this weekend :)

    Sorry to hear that your buyer backed out :( You've got it right though - God has a plan and will always provide! I'll keep you guys in my prayers for a quick sale.

  3. I'm so bummed that the couple backed out. Why do things have to be difficult?

    I haven't decorated yet, but I may this weekend if I have some time. But, I really should CLEAN first, so that's proabbly not going to happen. ;) I blame the other house, but really I just don't want to clean. haha.... I'll probably put out all the pumpkins this weekend so I'm looking forward to that.

  4. I can't wait to decorate for fall! I'm so sorry to hear about the troubles with the house. Hang in there, it will get better!

  5. Have a fabulous weekend and be careful traveling! A New England fall sounds perfect to me :) I tagged you in a Q&A post - stop by my blog when you have time!

  6. I know how stressfull that can be even when we try our best not to worry about things that we cannot control.

    Know that God always has a plan even though it might not be the one that we want.

    Praying for the right family to come along and make your old home thier new home!
