fall is officially here! celebrating the change of seasons and autumn

Happy Friday, you guys! I’m fighting a tiny head cold at the moment, but planning to rest a lot over the weekend. Next week I’ll be in Indianapolis doing a really fun trip with Delta Faucet and I’m so excited. If you’ve got tips on stuff to check out (and eat!!) while I’m there, let me know.

Anyways, here are a few things that have inspired me this week:

freshly baked homemade chocolate chip cookies

I don’t know what it is about this week, but man, what a doozy. Being totally honest, my anxiety this week has been through the freaking roof. This isn’t anything particularly new for me, but the immensity of it is something I haven’t experienced for quite a while. Yesterday, I ended up leaving the studio early to try to calm myself and take the afternoon to reset. I came home and decided to cook. There’s something so grounding and settling in the simple act of combining flour, sugar, and butter. So I mean chocolate chip cookies, banana bread, and sweet tea. Just a few of my favorite things that are easy to make. I woke up this morning feeling a bit better, like the cloud has lifted a bit. If you’re feeling the same way, I hope you know that it can get better. It can feel like an all-consuming thing, but better days are possible.

Happy Friday you guys! Things are definitely ramping up for fall and holiday posts around here. I find myself in the studio more and more, especially as we brainstorm some amazing DIY and recipe posts for you this year. I can’t wait to share more. Call me crazy, but I honestly cannot wait for it to be fall.

And here are a few of my favorite reads of the week:

Happy Friday, you guys. It’s a long weekend for Labor Day and I am quite excited. I’m getting up to speed more and more with my day-to-day activities now that my leg has healed. Speaking of, I had another set of x-rays this week and it’s looking like it’s almost totally healed! I’m so happy that I have finally gotten to this point. I’m still not sure what our weekend plans look like yet, but I have definitely made sure to shop some Labor Day sales. Here are my favorites:

Anthropologie: an extra 30% off sale

Crate & Barrel: 15% off with the annual upholstery sale

DVF: get an extra 20% off sale items with code ENDOFSUMMER

Also, usually for the Friday Edit, I share posts that really spoke to me this week. But in light of Hurricane Harvey, I wanted to share some of the resources that I’ve found most helpful when it comes to figuring out how to make your donations count. Quite honestly, I’ve been at such a loss when it comes to communicating how I feel about this horrible storm. I feel totally overwhelmed and powerless, but reading these posts by my fellow bloggers has really helped change that.

I’m sure there are a ton more resources out there, but I’ve found those to be the most helpful for me personally. But please, do what you can to help out. Any bit helps.

our first egg from our free range backyard chickens!

I have waited all summer for this moment… no, it’s not walking (although I’ve been able to do that!). It’s our first egg from our backyard chickens! I’m not totally sure which of the girls this egg came from, but I was soooo over the moon when I found it. First, the eggs have appeared earlier than we expected because we didn’t think they’d start laying until September. And, second, the eggs are just so tiny and cute and perfect! I’m positively obsessed with the purple-y little speckles that each egg has. Not gonna lie, I totally got all worked up and excited when I found the egg… almost like I’d laid it myself. HA. Would you guys be interested in a post all about the chickens?

Happy Friday, you guys! What are your weekend plans? As of right now, I don’t have any and I sort of love it. Now that I’m back up on my feet more and more, I’ve been getting tired really easily. Usually around 6 pm, I am ready to lay down and go to bed! I guess that’s what happens when you’re totally inactive for 14 weeks. I’m just embracing it though. I’ve never been a good sleeper, so the fact that I’m able to sleep a lot and often now is great.

the friday edit. pink velvet mules, embroidered graphic tee, new herbivore botanicals toner, rachel comey earrings.

Happy Friday, you guys! In case you missed my update on Instagram Stories, I finally have good news about my leg. I saw my doctor 2 days ago and he’s really happy with the results from last Friday’s small surgery. The gap between the broken bits has closed more and it’s definitely looking way more promising in there. And here’s the best news: I don’t need to wear the clunky, heavy boot around anymore! I’m beyond thrilled about that. It’s still hurts a bit to put weight on my leg, but my mobility is improving more and more each day. It finally feels like some progress is being made in my healing and I couldn’t be happier.

Here’s some stuff I’ve been eyeing lately…

Velvet is still a huge trend, so I’m kind obsessed with these pink suede mules.

I’m happiest in a tee, especially one with a sassy message. This one says You Little Shit and I love it.

I pretty much love anything from Herbivore Botanicals, so I’m stoked to try the new Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner.

This bag. OMG.

I desperately want these statement earrings.

Have a great weekend!
