Currently: October



I don't know about y'all, but I LOVE this time of year. I know that pumpkin spice has taken over the world in recent years, but that's not the extent of my love for fall. My love for fall is much more substantial and runs way deeper than an obsession with a Starbucks drink. In fall, the sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. The changing colors of the leaves are gorgeous. The air is crisp, the sweaters are soft, and the scents are cozy. October was the birth month of my sweet Nanny, and it is also the month that Rory and I met. It's just a good month, friends. Am I right? Here's what's going on around these parts:

Styling: I am super excited because I just ordered a new pair of boots from TOMS. I love TOMS, not only because of what they stand for and what they do, but because their shoes are so dang comfy. My sweet hubs let me splurge and I can't wait for these boots to get here!
Saving: We just paid off our car that we bought earlier this year, so we are going to be putting a lot more money in savings, and I could not be more pumped about it. Yay #adulthood and #budgeting!
Searching: Our bucket list has "cabin at Christmas" on it, and we are currently searching for a great Airbnb in Asheville for a mini-getaway in December.
Picking: Hmmm...this prompt is a strange one. I'm not sure what I'm picking these days. I guess you could say that I'm picking the last little bit of my zinnias from my garden. I've also been picking a ton of basil and using it in my cooking!
Making: I am making my grocery lists online these days. There is a Kroger near us that has something called Clicklist where you can make your order and then go pick it up. Life. changed.

What are you up to currently?

Linking up with Anne and Dana today!

  2. Ooh that sounds like such a good mini getaway! We are kind of hoping to take one in November, and I had contemplated Asheville as one spot. Sounds even better when you think of a cute little cabin, doesn't it? Thanks for linking up as always :)

  3. Congrats on paying off the car! That's such an exciting feeling! I have been obsessed with Toms lately. I'll have to look at their boots! Have you been to Asheville before? I think we're going to take an anniversary trip there in March, so I need any recommendations people have!

  4. Fall is my favorite time of the year, too, and I don't buy Starbucks.
