November Around Here

Guys, it's November (?!!?!?) How did that happen so fast? I really don't understand.

Earlier this week Tim asked me to start taking down the Halloween decorations and while walking through Target yesterday, we stumbled upon all the Christmas stuff. I know it's so early. I know it's not anywhere near Thanksgiving yet. I know we will be in Florida in 2 weeks and the weather won't even resemble Fall/Winter. But we purchased our first 2013 Christmas ornament and talked about the few Christmas presents we already purchased. It was darling.

Have a great weekend! I'll be attending a masquerade birthday party this weekend, and you better bet I bought that cat mask to wear. You'll have to check instagram for some photos!

September Around Here

Just a couple snapshots from around our home recently. September has been good to us thus far and I'm starting to come around to this Fall thing. The change of seasons has been pretty good for my attitude and creative energy. I've got some fun DIYs and recipes right around the corner that are perfect for chilly Fall nights. As much as I love summer, Fall is a pretty close second.

This weekend, Tim and I are planning a little camping extravganza, and I'm mighty excited! I'm sure I've have some photos to share.

PS: Has anyone ordered Printic before? We had a little housewarming gathering and a friend took a bunch of photos and surprised me with a stack of photos. I was very impressed with the quality, and it was kind of the cutest present ever. Can't wait to figure out a little project to display them!

July Around Here

When life gets interesting, our apartment gets dirty, clutter, and the boxes still sitting around from the move go unemptied. I guess that goes with the territory though. We've had a series of lovely weekends around here, which has caused things around the house to build up. Summer has just been so good to us this year, minus that little heatwave plus serious humidity we just finished. How's your summer going?

Around Here.

I'm dying for Spring right now. 

That's very dramatic, but winter and I aren't on the best of terms right now. I'm ready for warmth and open windows and sunlight. I don't want to carry my coat around bars and I want to drive with the windows down. I've enjoyed snuggling up with blankets and a cup of tea and wearing my boots and scarfs out and about, but I want to hang up my winter coats for good at this point.

How do you battle the winter blues?

Around Here.


It's been pretty lively around here lately. Christmas and New Years over, last weekend we celebrated my birthday. Yes, for the entire weekend. Our new sofa came Friday! And we purchased another piece of furniture for our entryway/kitchen area. This weekend was filled with smiling and good times. I wish every weekend could be that good...
