Anniversary Poster // Take me back to Rome!

IMG_8252

Can’t believe it’s been over a month since I’ve last posted! Fall has seemed so full and busy and it’s crazy that winter is around the corner (basically here already), Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and we’ve already bought a Christmas tree!! :) Grant and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary (!!!!!!) a few weekends ago. We spent a few days in Chicago and had a blast visiting museums and eating amazing food (more to come!). This is a poster I put together to celebrate the different places we’ve been to since we’ve been married. It started out as a card, but seemed much more fitting for a poster. It’s fun to look back and remember–5 years goes by so quickly. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! I’ll be making gluten free: apple pie, pumpkin pie and stuffing. Yummmmyy!

Art Institute of Chicago

IMG_5353

 

One of my favorite things about wandering the Art Institute of Chicago is looking at the wall colors and seeing how it affects the look of the artwork. I snapped this photograph over the summer. Most of the walls have rich, warm colors, but I spotted this eagle mirror on a pale blue wall and it looked so beautiful surrounded by Winslow Homer’s watercolors. The nautical feel of the mirror was a lovely addition to the gallery and wouldn’t you love to have that in your home?! I’ll take one! :) Happy Friday!!..xo

A good laugh for Monday // Bingley

A little laugh for your Monday morning–We love taking Bingley on the prairie path by my parent’s house. Sometimes he has so much energy one of us will run ahead and try to wear him out. WELL, he doesn’t like to leave anyone behind, so he flops over and plays dead. It’s SO FUNNY!! In a few of the videos you can see him look back and then plop over! :) :) He’s the cutest! We are obsessed! :) Hope you had a great weekend! I can’t believe it’s October already. xo

Fall Moody Board

My sister Claire is the fashion queen in our family. She has amazing style and her Pinterest is insanely beautiful! She’s a curator at heart :) I asked her to put together a fall fashion inspired mood board for us (above). Fall has the best colors. This past weekend I drank apple cider and pumpkin spiced coffee…I also ate pumpkin doughnuts, pear-spiced yogurt, an apple-oat scone AND a caramel apple!!!! Seriously a good weekend :) Fall is HERE!! I’m ready to layer up and wear booties (just hope it doesn’t get too cold, too quickly!)!!

I used this gluten free scone mix to make the apple oat scones. I got the mix at World Market along with a blueberry mix. The best ever. Couldn’t be easier either–just add oil and water. YUM! I’d definitely recommend it!

Cheers to cozy sweaters, pumpkin pie, apple picking, You’ve Got Mail, scarves, football games, chai tea, apple cider & flannel! ;)
