Baby In Our Wildest Moments

Don’t have much to post. Or, really, just too freaking much.

Til I sort through it all, I leave this. I’m obsessed with this song since hearing it over and over in cabs in Brooklyn this past weekend. Jessie Ware’s Wildest Moments.

In love! Enjoy.

Be back soon.

I’ll Be Your Mirror – The Velvet Underground

All of My Days, All of My Days

Well I have been searching all of my days
All of my days
Many a road, you know
I’ve been walking on
All of my days
And I’ve been trying to find
What’s been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night

Well I have been quietly standing in the shade
All of my days
Watch the sky breaking on the promise that we made
All of this rain
And I’ve been trying to find
What’s been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night

Well many a night I found myself with no friends standing near
All of my days
I cried aloud
I shook my hands
What am I doing here
All of these days
For I look around me
And my eyes confound me
And it’s just too bright
As the days keep turning into night

Now I see clearly
It’s you I’m looking for
All of my days
Soon I’ll smile
I know I’ll feel this loneliness no more
All of my days
For I look around me
And it seems He found me
And it’s coming into sight
As the days keep turning into night
As the days keep turning into night
And even breathing feels all right
Yes, even breathing feels all right
Now even breathing feels all right
It’s even breathing
Feels all right

Happy November

Been MIA the last month…be back soon with some posts…

For now, a little inspiration on this lovely Wednesday. It WILL be a beautiful day. This is definitely a season of change in my life, and it’s amazing.



My Soul


The Secret




Pretty Song for the Day: Ho Hey by The Lumineers, covered by PS22 Chorus

If you have never listened to these kiddos before, go do it now. The passion and heart that they show is absolutely inspiring, and their teacher is a pretty amazing guy. I’ve been listening to the PS22 choruses for years and years now. Always always always makes my days better. Such beautiful little souls.

I Love Me Some Autumn

I really, really love Autumn. It’s my favorite of all of the seasons. Living in the Dallas area my entire 28 years, I don’t get to really enjoy a proper Autumn, but still, what I do get, I love. I know it doesn’t officially start until later this month, but in my home we jump on the Autumn train the moment Labor Day comes around and football season starts. {GO COWBOYS!!}  When I say we love the cooler season, I mean it…my daughter just last week picked the Mickey Mouse Christmas Carol to watch. She’s her mother’s daughter for sure; I’ve been known to watch a Christmas movie or two starting in late Summer for as long as I can remember. Unconventional yes, but that’s alright. We do things our way.

Autumn just brings about a breath of fresh air, figuratively and literally. After suffering through 100+ degree weather all summer…and late Spring, early Autumn…, that first inkling of a cool breeze in the morning or windows-open worthy evenings is welcomed with open arms. Football on the TV, pretty orange and brown decor, baking and cooking, sweaters, boots, pumpkins, cinnamon, cloves and apples simmering on my stove {see my recipe below}, colored leaves, planting pretty Fall flowers. It means holidays are around the corner, a new wardrobe <I despise shorts btw>, new decor for the house, new crafting ideas…aaahhh. Love.


Some Autumn lovelies to get the season going!

blue moon autumn beer

This is some pretty beer – Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale. I love the packaging. And any beer that has yummy pumpkin, nutmeg and other spices mixed in. Yes, please. Autumn in a bottle.

Fall Printable

I’ve seen those cute little seasonal printables all over Pinterest and people’s homes framed, so I thought, why not just make my own. Any reason to waste time and play around on GIMP – because Photoshop is still not installed on my computer…I’ve had it for almost a year, so maybe I’ll install it before Christmas…procrastination is my middle name. Feel free to use.

Kiddos playing in the Autumn leaves. The good life. {via}

Autumn Centerpiece

Gorgeous apple & leaves centerpiece. Red plaid throw draped over the chair. I can almost feel the cool crisp Autumn air looking at this Autumn dinner party. {via}

Holiday Potpourri

Smells like the holidays. Yummy simmering potpourri from Make It Do blog. A great, natural alternative to burning candles in the house all season. {via}

My Simple Apple Cinnamon Potpourri Recipe:

1 Sliced or chopped apple (great if you have one going bad!)

1 Tbs cinnamon powder (easier and cheaper than cinnamon sticks)

1 Tsp cloves (more or less)

Dash of vanilla (grab a cheap one at the grocery store)

Throw it in a small pot, cover with water and simmer on low on the stove. The house will be smelling like heaven within minutes of it simmering. Make sure to check the pot every once in a while to refill with water if needed. Once I’m done using it, I put it in a little container, let it cool and save it in the fridge. It will last at least a week. This is a great, affordable handmade gift for a work exchange or for the neighbors once the holidays roll around, just be sure to tell them it needs to stay in the fridge when usused- just put in a mason jar, fill with water, screw the lid on, add a cute little label and ribbon and ta-da!

Oh, Autumn, how I love you.
