Life Lately

It’s that crazy time of year where the kids start back to school, I start to get excited for fall and the temperatures decide to hang out in the high 80’s! Oh, and then the pool closes, ha! Oh well, as one who lives in central PA I know for sure I will be sick of the cold in a few short months, so I won’t complain.

So let’s see, life lately…Jack started 1st grade this week and is loving being back with his friends. Madelyn met her preschool teacher and (I think) is ready to start next week. I myself am not sure I’m ready for that, although I am looking forward to a little quiet time two days a week with Audrey. Jack and I continue to tackle projects around the house, albeit at a much slower pace than when we started. ¬†From what I hear from other homeowners, however, is that the projects never end. I guess we’re in for the long haul!

This beauty of a rug arrived recently for our dining room. I found it on Gilt and am so glad I came across it because it certainly makes a statement! It was one of those things that I didn’t know what I wanted or which direction I should take until I saw it!


My handsome 1st grader, ready for his first day.


My doll, growing up and heading to preschool all too quickly!


A little updating to our powder room. Nothing crazy, but a little paint (SW Silver Strand) and a change up with the mirror has it feeling a little more ‘me’.



Hope you all have a fantastic Labor Day weekend!


Over the past few years booties have become quite the staple in my closet. Most days I’d rather pull on a bootie than anything with a high shaft for the shear ease of it. Plus the variety of styles that are now available leaves me always wanting another pair! Leather, suede, high heel, low heel, wedge, zippers, buckles, metallic, peeptoe…..I could go on and on, but as you see, you have options! From the vast sea of booties, I’ve gathered a handful of my favorites to provide a little eye candy for ya! Do you plan on adding any to your wardrobe this season?
