Weekend Wishes

day dreaming on these but aren’t they pretty?

A Holiday Life Lately

Hello December! I’m so ready for you…

I haven’t done a post like this in awhile… I was able to somewhat disconnect over the Thanksgiving break and instead of just taking snaps of around the house I took some of my favorite people. The five days kicking off the holidays with my favorite people was time well spent.

Pillow Fever

this post is sponsored by Sewing Down South in partnership with Thomasville but the words and opinions are all my own.

As we continute to work on our guest room (not a lot of guests these days) I’ve been playing with decor and adding and moving things around. Part of the gig? Kinda. I love a space that is constantly evolving… I was just recently gifted these new pillows from SDS fall collection with Thomasville.

I love the Fossil print the most and I love the hand painted print and texture of the fabric. Sewing Down South is such a fun and light hearted brand and I was thrilled they reached out. Who is a big fan!?

All of the pillows from this collection are under $100 with insert! Woo! Craig Conover has this #sewsquad and it’s easy to see why.

Take a peek at his new collection here.

Our Halls Are Decked With A Little Help from Wayfair

this post is sponsored by Wayfair but the thoughts and opinions are my own.

With the new house, our old light set up just wasn’t going to work. We needed to think through how we were going to decorate our house this year and thanks to Wayfair and a $250 giftcard we figured it out pretty quick!

I knew we were going to keep it simple this time. I always envisioned a big large wreath to hang on our doormer as the statement decoration. Wreaths, can be super expensive and the fact I was hoping to find one that is 48″ in diameter I figured would break the bank but Wayfair had a variety to choose from! This Norwood Fir is the perfect focal piece right above the garage is on sale and under $150!

I also ordered some faux holiday swag – typically used for mailboxes and such but I thought they would be perfect to go on our columns with our gas lanterns. They tie around the lantern just right and add just enough sparkle closer to the street.

I love people that go all out, but our new house has a unique elevation being mainly our garage, so I wanted it to have a sweet gingerbread house appeal. Decorating doesn’t need to be stressful or expensive. The boys love the lights and wreath, in particular, lights up the driveway at night for after dark brother races and play sessions.

Overall, I’m SO pleased with the holiday decor this year – Wayfair was nice and quick to ship and it feels good to get this holiday season underway!

Immensely Grateful

almost a whole year in our dream house and with my home boys. It wasn’t the year we planned, but having Nick home more and spending more intentional time at home has been really good for my soul. 2020 has put life in perspective in many many ways and even though a lot of it has been hard and challenging and unpredictable… one thing is certain, I have everything I need and then some.

I hope to really disconnect this week – from clients, work, social media and break out an old fashion camera and totally devour up my kids and family. I have no idea how many Thanksgivings we have left as a family and I’m going to cherish every second of it.

Attention is the rarest and purist form of generosity. – Weil

Let us take a moment to give attention to what means most.

Wishing you and yours a plentiful, healthy and homey Thanksgiving.

A Glimpse Into Our Home Office

when we saw the original plans for this house Nick loved the idea of having a garage apt but using it as a home office space. It’s such a versatile set up since it’s detached from our home and perfectly perched up above our garage set within the trees.

When we moved in Nick just had his table in the center of room, cords everywhere (mind you the pandemic hit in March/April and we moved in early February) so we weren’t exactly set up how we wanted it.

With COVID, like many others, I set up shop in our home office and we both squeezed onto his large wood desk and made it work. Literally.

With my new business though, we needed to really make the space work for both of us. We ordered new desks and chairs from Herman Miller, asked Loloi for their Wynter Rug (I’m obsessed with it!) and then the decor settled in from there.

Our new joint office is dreamy, functional and in some cases inspiring. We have a very handy kitchenette that we use daily, a beverage cooler for all things coffee and water and a bathroom with natural light and on most days a lit candle. As the weather has been nicer we’ve had the doors and windows open, fall playlists streaming through our Sonos speaker and an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I like my cute office buddy.
