With the arrival of Thanksgiving week – I’m definitely feeling like it’s time to slow down and enjoy the beginning of the holidays. It’s amazing how fast November flew by, don’t you think? This past weekend I decided to ditch my computer and focus on getting the house ready for entertaining family and friends this Thanksgiving. Yes, we’re hosting even though I’m nine months pregnant. Both Eric and I love cooking up a feast and since we’re probably going to have our hands full around Christmas this year, we thought why not kick off the holidays at our house?
What are your plans this Thanksgiving holiday? Are you flying home to see family or enjoying some time in your city with friends?
I hope all of you have a wonderful short week – I’ve got a lot of inspiration for the holidays coming your way so stay tuned. I will also be launching some gift guides that you won’t want to miss!

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!
