I decorated for fall on or before Sept 15 two years ago, and I decorated last year on Sept 6. Today is September 16... And I still have not decorated!! I'm winning against myself hahaha. I really think I might make it to October 1 this year. I've put out a very small amount of things that I bought recently, but I HAVE NOT pulled out my decorations out of storage. I am so proud of myself.
HOPEFULLY El Niño happens this year. They've been talking about it since spring. Now it's only a 60% chance or so, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed!! Some colder weather would be really nice!
