GETTING IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT

Surely I can’t be alone in this but I am having the hardest time getting in to the holiday spirit this year… usually by December 1st our home looks like the north pole but I have yet to set up one single decoration.

FALL MUSINGS

Fall musings, one of the first thing that comes to mind is one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books…

“life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall”
-The Great Gatsby
and I think this year, that quote has never felt as relevant. This season seems like a big shift… I can’t be the only one who feels this. There’s a hope in the air, even as the leaves change colors and twirl to the…

It’s officially the second week of fall and I’m busting into my fall capsule wardrobe… even though we’re still sweating here in San Diego, my mind is stuck in sweater mode.
