calm & centered (leave your tip!)

Readers, I’ve been taking blogging a bit easy lately, since I’ve been extra focused on work and finding a sense of balance in my day to day ebb and flow. Things have a way of getting out of balance quickly and I find it’s a constant effort to feel like I’ve got everything calm andContinue reading “calm & centered (leave your tip!)”

golden sunshine glory (+giveaway continues!)

Ahhhh we are having such glorious fall weather here in Chicago…it’s pure bliss! Now that Halloween has passed, my mind is moving towards Thanksgiving and, of course, Christmas. While always a busy season, it’s a season full of blessings. I’m looking forward to all of the seasonal activities, family time, friend time, and the lastContinue reading “golden sunshine glory (+giveaway continues!)”

feeling very fall

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for the well wishes for our wedding last weekend! Now that the wedding planning is complete, I am back to catching up on the rest of life :)! It seems that while I was planning away, fall had officially arrived in the Chicago area. As I walkedContinue reading “feeling very fall”

bright brocade

There’s a few styles of fabric and prints that have my heart (denim, toile, houndstooth, to name a few). Brocade has always been one of my favorites, but I rarely find brocade prints and fabric, let alone in metallic! So, I was, of course, super excited to find this skirt at BCBG over the summer.Continue reading “bright brocade”

friend and faux

Well it’s been, per usual, a whirlwind week leading up to the wedding (now less than three weeks away!). Between work and planning, I’ve been sneaking in a few blog photos when I can!! I was loving the dreamy-fantasy look in these photos, given the early morning sun. The sitting area ended up looking, toContinue reading “friend and faux”

And I appreciate so very much all of your support! This is an exciting time, and I love being able to share it,Continue reading “time flies (and fun ahead)!”

thankful

Tomorrow, in the US, we celebrate Thanksgiving Day. While reflecting on blessings is not limited to one day, Thanksgiving, to me, is an important day to celebrate with loved ones and reflect on the many blessings we have experienced throughout the year. I am so thankful this year for the many blessings that have comeContinue reading “thankful”

all for fall

Back when I was just a wee Huntress, I used to have a book called “All for Fall.” I’m pretty sure the book was about jumping in leaves and generally enjoying fall. Maybe that’s where my love of all things fall began. Either way, I am definitely all for fall as an adult: fall colors, throwingContinue reading “all for fall”

blogging buddies and mail magic

Getting things in the mail is a rare treat these days in our electronic age. Well, mail dreams came true when I found out a couple of weeks ago that I won a drawing for an article of clothing from Mihaela at Fashion Sky Fall. You can imagine how jazzed I was to receive theContinue reading “blogging buddies and mail magic”
