Whoah, this week went fast! And I know I say that a lot, but this week really moved at lightning speed. Can someone send a memo to the timekeeper and let him know so slow down a bit. This season needs to move slowly, for the sake of enjoying more fall things and for keeping my baby little longer. We're almost three months away from her second birthday. I can't even.

In other news, husband and I are working on our next project, the eat-in nook in our kitchen. My engineer gladly accepted my request for a light above the table in the nook. There was not an existing one in place, so he had to wire things, cut wholes, hang out in the attic, take things apart, and put them back together. It took over a day to get done, but it looks SO good! I'm pleased beyond my expectations. I am excited to share this reveal with you soon. Never underestimate the power of light in a space. It has changed up the feel of the kitchen entirely. Psst....the shiplap that is going up is also changing the feel ;) 

So some favorites lately....

  • Speaking of lighting...I added this cute little lamp baseshade to our kitchen for a cozier feel, and it does just that. I love lamp light vs. overhead light always. So it's nice having a lamp in the kitchen, because who says a kitchen can't be cozy?!
  • These pumpkins just keep multiplying in my house. I have no idea least that's what I'm telling husband ;)
  • I have fallen in love with flameless candles for décor purposes. With a toddler running around, it's safe, and for this mama brain, it's safe so I won't forget to put them out. I have a lantern next to the fireplace just begging for flameless, but still life-like candles. But I'm still burning all the fall candles in out-of-reach places.

And that's it! On to the weekend, friends! xo

p.s. Did you see our annual apple picking adventure?
