Good morning friends! This weekend began with our house looking as though Christmas had come a little too early – doing a holiday shoot that I’ll be sharing soon. Alas, it all had to be cleaned up for another exciting shoot this week. After getting the house back to its original state I ditched my errands to enjoy some much needed rest.
This week I’ll be sharing effortless ways to make the beginning of the holiday season go off without a hitch – from creating the perfect bar cart to a new blooms in season post.
I hope all of you have a lovely week!
Who decided that weekends should be two days? This weekend flew by. My family and friends hosted an incredible baby shower for me. It was amazing to feel all the love from family and friends that I’ve known throughout different stages of my life. As I looked around the room I felt so blessed to have had each one of them in my life – whether I met them in 3rd grade, college or later in life, each one of them have touched me in different ways and I know baby Flemming will be so lucky to have a fabulous group of aunties that love him.
I’m going into this week feeling so excited for what’s to come in the next few weeks – lots of fun shoots and projects to wrap up before baby comes. Stay tuned for some fun posts this week!

This first weekend of November felt quite blissful. After quite a whirlwind month of baseball playoffs and wining the World Series – I clasped into bed after the parade feeling incredibly excited about two things: 1) the baseball dynasty that my husband has been part of and 2) entering a new month that involves being at home. We decided we wouldn’t set any alarms and enjoy just being at home together – I ignored the piles of laundry, dirty house and impending work to-do lists until Sunday. And though we had these household tasks to do, I loved every minute of it. Maybe it’s the change of season or the fact that I’m in total nesting mode before baby Flemming arrives . . . only 52 days to go!
Stay tuned for a packed week of posts – a new recipe that will give you the biggest sweet tooth, a fun maternity shoot and much more!
Cheers to a productive new month and a new week.

Do you ever find yourself not knowing what day of the week it is? Well, that’s how I’ve felt over the past few weeks. It has been quite a whirlwind few weeks with baseball playoffs, fall photo shoots, family coming into town and traveling. Now we’re in Kansas City for the last few games of the World Series but I have to say, this morning was blissful. We set no alarms, decided to take the morning off and just relax. And although it’s not Monday I feel like I’m starting my week on the right foot.
Cheers to a wonderful last few days of October and hopefully celebrating another win for the Giants!

Hope all of you had a lovely weekend. We headed down to Carmel to celebrate two amazing friends get married – it was pure magic. Not to mention that we were able to catch up with old friends that we haven’t seen in quite some time. But as we made the drive back home I grew even more excited for the week that lies ahead – projects that are being shot, family that is coming into town and the World Series. Plus, there is a slight fall breeze in the air that has me delighted that fall may have finally arrived.
This week there is a plethora of beautiful posts coming your way – a new recipe that I love, a fall tabletop to inspire you when planning you’re next gathering and a new Blooms in Season post. Be sure to check back regularly because these aren’t to be missed.
Have a splendid week everyone and don’t forget to enter our Minted holiday card giveaway!
