Planting Roots | We’re Homeowners!

So, I got to Thankful post Day 20, and totally dropped the ball. But I swear it was because very important things were happening! I can now tell you what I’ve been keeping from you (and have totally wanted to blog about but obviously couldn’t)! We bought a house!!! We had such a wonderful team […]

Thankful Challenge Day 16 | 2016

Today I’m thankful for a calm evening for the first time in about a week. We made an easy dinner from Hello Fresh, then watched Gilmore Girls and ate popsicles. Simple and so needed. I love spending time with my guy like that! And I think I’m turning in early tonight. More things ahead to […]

DW Candle Review

At the end of August, I was already counting down the days to Autumn (…because of course). One day while in Homegoods, I spotted the most gorgeous packaging for candles I’ve seen in a while by DW Home.

For Fox Sake

It’s freakin’ Fall, ya’ll! Reflecting about the season, it amazes me how many people have come out as Fall enthusiasts over the last few years. Maybe it’s the influence of the cozy images on Pinterest. Maybe it’s the Pumpkin Spice anything and everything. Pin Whatever the reason, I sit here and realize that nature is […]
