Follow the scent...

I LOVED Natalie's post about pumpkins, being a pumpkin lover myself. Check out her blog for some great pumpkin ideas! Here's another good pumpkin recipe (or so I assume- haven't made it, but it looks good!) Click here to see what it looks like (I need someone to show me how to upload pics from the web)
