Fall Fridays might be my favorite. The weather is cooler and promises extra time outdoors. I can drink (and eat) extra apple, spice, and pumpkin flavored coffee and sweets. Fire pits are fully accepted. The holidays are right around the corner. And a drive to the NC mountains is basically a necessity!
We are spending this Friday on a quick road trip to an apple orchard, and I’m so excited! But before we leave, I had to link up with April, Darci, Christina, and Natasha. Thank you for hosting, ladies!
ONE: I need a hair update. I’ve had basically the same haircut for years. I did cut 5+ inches off a couple months after I had Davis, but it has already mostly grown out, thank goodness. Want some advice? Don’t do anything so drastic to your hair when you’re that hormonal! I didn’t like it shorter. I never like it short, but for some reason, every few years I cut it. Even though Todd tells me not to. Stubborn, maybe?!
I’m thinking I want long bangs (not actual bangs, just shorter layers around my face), and maybe a color update.
TWO: I think this bar cart needs to come live at our house. It’s gold, so of course I love it. Todd and I have been saying for a few years that we need a bar cart, or a piece of furniture to house wine glasses and the like. For $129, this just may happen! Target does it again! Here’s the cart, plus some inspiration pictures I’ve pinned.
THREE: Pretty, affordable, and so many options! We recently added 3 art prints in our kitchen and family room from Society 6. I am a huge fan of this site. The prints came quickly, and in a very sturdy package. I had them framed at Hobby Lobby, and my mom helped me get them promptly installed. Such a great change in our house! The artists I bought from were Emily Rickard and Adriane Duckworth. These are the prints in my house – please excuse the terrible lighting!
FOUR: I am in a small group through church for young moms. My friend Beth started this group, and I am so thankful for the experience! We are going through Lysa Terkeurst‘s book What Happens When Women Say Yes to God and I’d highly recommend it. We’re about halfway through it, and I’ve learned and felt challenged through each chapter.
FIVE: This Southern Love Letter from Lara Casey to my state. North Carolina is special, and I’m blessed to call it home. I am not as talented a writer as Lara, so I’m letting her words take over.
Now I’m humming James Taylor. It’s good to be a Tar Heel.
I hope you get some time this weekend with your families and friends to enjoy the falling leaves, football, cooler weather, and some pumpkin flavored coffee. Cheers, girls!
