A Perfect Fall Ensemble...

This weekend we had a rain storm and the temperature dropped at least 10 degrees, but it still doesn't feel like fall does at home in Maryland.  However, a week from tomorrow Bill and I are headed to Boston to meet up with my parents and it will absolutely feel like fall there!  This made me wish (only for a moment) that I had extra money to buy fun fall clothes.  I just LOVE fall clothes :)  I love scarves and coats and tights and boots!  They all fill me up with joy.

However, since I am not independently wealthy, I decided to pretend for the sake of a lovely fall blog post, that I could find a wonderful outfit for fall and show you guys what I want.  I could never afford this, but I think it's fun to imagine/pretend.

Oh how soft and wonderful these clothes would be :)

ScarfCoat, and Boots.





I love love love these colors and silhouettes and everything about each of these items.


Do you love them as much as me?  What's your favorite fall thing to wear?

  2. I would like to make you my personal stylist- I would never have put these things together (my mind doesn't work that way) but i LOVE IT. Lets become insanely wealthy and spend out days shopping and traveling....and visiting all the zoos in the US.

  3. Honestly Heather, I would love to be a stylist/home designer. I even looked into going to school for it... who knows maybe I will design your house and wardrobe all the time when we win the lottery :)

In the Nursery: Whole Hearted Parenting Manifesto

I recently finished a book by Brene Brown titled, DaringGreatly
It really moved me, and I am definitely still processing it.
At the beginning of the book I wasn’t resonating deeply with the topic of vulnerability, as most people will tell you I am an “open book”.  I will answer most questions without holding back and love to deep dive into good conversation.  However, what I came to realize through her many examples is that we all wrestle with vulnerability, guilt and shame throughout this book even if is more momentary than constant.  I gleaned SO MUCH from this book that I did not anticipate, and I thought I would share this Parenting Manifesto that she put right at the end of the book.  I am printing it and framing it for our nursery, as I think it communicates some deep parts of my heart cry for parenting my kiddos well.

I hope this resonates with someone else as much as it did with me.  
I needed these words to remind me that parenting is not a checklist, it is a lifestyle.  …

A Penny For Your Thoughts - On Insecurity and Looking Back

I have felt compelled to write about something lately, and been shying away from it, which is not my typical style.  As I look back over my life, I have recently realized that I finally feel like "enough".  I know my worth is in the Lord and I know I am beautiful and worth people's time, but that has not always been my story.  Far too often from the ages of 12 to 30, I defined my worth by whether someone was interested in dating me or not and after I got married, whether people "liked me" and wanted to be my friend or to hire me.  Was I pretty enough?  Interesting enough? Worth someone's time?  Talented enough?  Smart enough? etc...
Recently, as pictures pop up in my Timehop (an app that shows pictures taken the same day as far back as it can reach through social media and the camera roll on my phone), I distinctly remember feeling like I was either fat or unattractive in most pictures.  I remember being embarrassed of my pants size.  I remember wearing to…

At the Library - May through September 2019 Reading

We had another baby in May (SO much more on that later) and blogging has obviously taken a back seat, but I am still reading for pleasure and have managed, in my sons first four months of life, to complete these 8 books!  Y'all, I remember a time when even completing 2 books a year would have sincerely sounded daunting, much less with a newborn.  If you want to read more, you can find the time!  Take stock of your days and see where you are wasting hours.  For some of these, I listened to the audio book while I was pumping or watering the garden.  
Rather than give you an individual breakdown of each of these books, I just want to report I found them all incredibly enjoyable.  A total cross section of a food memoir to a psychology deep dive to nature centric novels, I would recommend them all in different capacities.
