Fall

We're getting into the Halloween spirit around here.

I decorated for the Home Depot Holiday Challenge that I mentioned on Friday and then quickly took it down before everyone thought we were nuts. Up went the bats. I like them. I still need to get it organized with some pumpkins and fall flowers (and a prettier doorbell ringer). Really taken with Sarah's porch. Isn't it beautiful?


I had such a good weekend. We spent a good majority of it outside and strolling around the neighborhood with the kids. Friday I had quite a few really great emails land into my inbox. One of which was from a reader introducing herself, she's a neighbor! I decided to host a little impromptu porch drinks night with a couple of my new neighbors that I've met thanks to the blog. And by host I mean I just invited them over, very laid back. Such fun. Saturday night Josh and I walked down the street for dinner, a great date night complete with Sambuca after dinner. 

I had a coffee meeting downtown Friday morning and snapped this photo from our table. I had never noticed the owls up there. Fun and quirky, and just feels like fall. ** Update - Apparently owl statues are used to scare away birds that would otherwise crap on the building and people (Josh's words). Thanks Josh. **

Enjoy your Monday.

Your home is gorgeous and the other porch is too, those owls looks like beautiful ornamentation! Is that a house or hotel? Beautiful building.

Love it. And love the sneak peak into your kitchen (I spot your amazing hood and brass pendants through the front door window). Can we please see more! Cannot wait - even unfinished with no art on the wall it's bound to be fabulous (and inspirational).
