Did you know that the Carpathian mountain range is home to over 32 different species of bat? True story!
With the season of the witch upon us, Meredith and I decided to pay homage to one of Halloween's signature icons and one of their most plentiful habitats, the Carpathian mountain range, with our new Explore The Carpathian Mountains design. While it may have a somewhat sinister connotation in popular culture, the Romanian historical region of Transylvania — which is nestled along the Carpathian range — is actually quite beautiful and picturesque.

Speaking of picturesque, far-flung places, this week on the podcast Meredith and I recap our recent road trip vacation! I've included lots of pictures below, but listen along while you scroll as we regale you with tales of our trip — where we went, what we did, where we ate, and what we saw. We also share some customer reviews, go into detail about our new Fall Vibes giveaway (which you can enter to win here), and read some of your comments on recent Question of the Day posts. Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this little travelogue, as well as our new design! We'll be back next Tuesday with a new Community Spotlight Q&A, another podcast episode for your listening pleasure, and more fresh new designs to keep your style game on point as we snuggle our way into the crisp autumn weather. Until then, have a great weekend, and as always...
