Happy Fall!


I don’t know about everywhere else, but here in NC – it’s been 90 degrees until about 3 days ago. And let me tell you that I am
My basic white girl comes out in full force as soon as the clock strikes October. I’m talking flying down the aisles at Target and Tj Maxx looking for the newest decorative pumpkins to add to my already ridiculous collection, scooping up ALL the apple and cinnamon candles, and of course snagging a new cozy blanket. Something about coming home from work, lighting every single candle in my living room, closing the blinds, staring at my new inspirational quote hanging above my TV from Hobby Lobby, and turning on a Halloween movie just really gets my fire going (no pun intended).
When it comes to decorating for the seasons, i've been trying to find timeless pieces that will fit into any room, and won't break my bank.

Not sure what it is about fall that makes everyone so happy? Maybe the idea that another year is starting to wind down and we physically start seeing change outside. The change in the weather and the leaves indicates the idea that a new year is going to be starting soon, along with the soon to be promises of “starting new” and doing all those things that you were going to go this year, but kept pushing off and pushing off. Next year will be the year. You just know it. I try to take this time, as everything around me is changing and as we dive into what the promises I made for myself this year. What promises were kept, what was broken, and how you realize that a year in your life never turns out like you thought it would. You just have to take each day as it comes and keep living it with the mindset of one of my favorite quotes (which is currently above my tv - so i can remind myself during my Netflix binges). Thank God for Hobby Lobby, they are always having the best sales

Always Pray Wood Wall Decor - Hobby Lobby - $14.99 *ON SALE FROM $29.99*

A lot happened for me this year! I went out of the country for the first time, I got to visit one of my very best friends in LA (she moved out there over a year ago for a bad ass job), I went on countless date nights with the sweetest man alive, we moved in together, I grew closer to God, I learned to not take BS anymore, to let go of negative people, I decided to make more of an effort to be a better friend, a better person, to give myself better goals.
Whew - And the year ain’t over yet! I’m thoroughly enjoying and full out embracing the season that we are in. I am READY for some bonfires (mostly for the s’mores because….duh), cute oversized scarfs, boots, trying out new breweries, the changing colors of leaves and just excited to see what’s in store.
