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.
