favorite denim

I have been getting into a good routine of organizing the mess of photos on our computer. These were taken late this past summer, before our lawn was covered with crunchy leaves. I love this dress so much! It is perfect to throw on when I want to be comfortable but a good bit nicer than my usual yoga pants. And my beloved Levi's jacket. It is indestructible. However, this dress is currently in my mend pile, which I can't wait to tackle this weekend. I have items in there I forgot I owned! I think it'll be a great layering piece through winter, over leggings and under sweaters.

october is my favorite

 For so many reasons, October is my favorite month. Fall and winter hats come out of storage, pumpkins are carved, and treats are baked on the weekend - I have plans from pumpkin pie, cinnamon rolls, and molasses cookies. The leaves are changing, and then falling, making for a beautiful view out my kitchen window, and then lots of leaf blowing on Saturdays. But I love it, all of it.
These photos were taken on my birthday, another reason I love October. We went for brunch at one of my favorite places, and since it was such a gorgeous day, we took a little walk afterward. My husband's birthday is also this month, as well as our one year wedding anniversary. So much to celebrate!

the carolinas, part 2

I am so grateful for my little Carolina trip. Each time I leave home, it gives me a chance to decompress and let go of the daily tasks that home brings. It also allows me to return home renewed. These are some more shots from my trip: Central Coffee Company's lovely chalkboard menu; my coffee treat and Rachel's lunchtime chicken-turtle drawing; just a few of Rachel's animal family; sand sculpture at Folly Beach; breezy beach day; flying home.

the carolinas, part 1

Late last month, I flew to Charlotte, North Carolina to visit my awesome friend Rachel. All of these photos are from our mini-road trip down to Folly Beach and Charleston, South Carolina to visit one of her sisters. Charleston is lovely! There is brick everywhere and cute restaurants and shops to walk through. I'll share more photos from my trip soon, but for now I'm enjoying reliving the beach weather through these photos... since I'm currently wrapped up in a quilt while we have a very rainy fall here in the Pacific Northwest.
