Welcome October, I've Been Waiting! (& Hello, Fall-O-Ween!)

Words cannot express how ridiculously excited I am now that October is finally here. Actually, maybe that one can: ridiculously. I am ridiculously excited for all things fall and October and Halloweeny-related, and I've been itching to spill about my plans for weeks! Sure, those three things (fall, October, Halloween, hereinafter referred to as "Fall-O-Ween" 'round these parts) are normally associated with dying. But just like Beth from Attachments, October makes me feel alive. The weather is perfect, the energy in the city is always lively, I can wear riding boots everyday and hello, Indian Summer!

But what does all that mean? 

Posts about any & everything Fall-O-Ween:
Expect a lot more of me, showing up on this dear blog of mine. I had a thought of turning this into a Blogtober (blog everyday in October) sort of thing, but who am I kidding?... However, 3-5 times per week? Yeah, that's happening.

Giveaways:
Another thing that's happening - small giveaways. No car for you; this isn't the Oprah Show :) But I love Fall-O-Ween so much that I wanted to share a bit of it with you all this month!

Link Ups:
Is fall your favorite season? Do you go all-out for Halloween? Do you blog about anything Fall-O-Ween related? If so, pop in to TKD every Friday in October and simply link one of your posts for us to see! (Also, feel free to grab the button below if you like).
The Kari Diaries



With all that introduction out of the way, let's kick off Fall-O-Ween right! Remember the little sneak peek in this post? Well, last week, I made my little apartment a bit more cozy by decorating for fall. I may add a spider, trinket or cobweb here or there as Halloween approaches, but most of the decor stays the same until December. We're picture heavy today, so check out lots more after the cut!




Burlap Wrapped Candles!
I just love this centerpiece. It's the perfect lighting for a movie and can be romantic or spooky (or both if you're into that kinda thing)


Mini Giveaway

..... The first small giveaway for whomever ventured beyond the cut and to the depths of this post. You see those prints in the gold frames above? I made the first one ("FALL in love") and found the second. Here are the docs. Enjoy!  


Happy October, everyone! And of course, Happy Fall-O-Ween :)
