OCTOBER TWILIGHT



"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." - L.M. Montgomery. Happy October, darlings! The best month of the year is finally here! Scott and I rung in the new month by watching the #RoloffWedding episode of Little People, Big World after getting home from seeing Ben Kweller at our favorite local venue. It's crazy to think that I've been listening to BK for at least twelve years now - Sha Sha was one of my favorite albums forever. BK always puts on an amazing live show, and this time around did not disappoint! He's SO happy and has so much energy! Him and his band played for a good hour and half, five song encore included. Mix in the super sweet Roloff wedding that I couldn't wait to watch, and we had a perfect night!

After our wild night last night (haha), we're having a low key night at home with the pups and kitty boots. While I love going out on dates and adventures with my hubby, sometimes it's just nice to stay home and partake in the "mundane" things - homework, home cooked meals, puppy snuggles and more. Not gonna lie, though, I am ready for all the adventures that October will bring! It's going to be an amazing month!

SEPTEMBER WRAP-UP



It's the last day of September and I can't believe how quickly the month flew by. Although fall doesn't technically start until around the middle of the month, September always feels like the start of a new season. This year, I was so ready for a fresh month and all the fall vibes that September brings. This time around it also brought a new job, an amazing opportunity for Scott, and lots of time together.

Here's a little recap of what our September looked like:
  • Spending time my sweetheart in the woods outside of Flagstaff, Ariz.
  • Sipping on my first pumpkin spice iced coffee of the season.
  • Spending lots of time with our sweet pups, Piper and Scout.
  • Celebrating 8 years from the day we met - we were just kids back then.
  • Starting a new job and getting into the swing of things.
  • Pulling out my sweaters and boots a little early.
  • Working on a fun photo shoot for Shop & Apparel. 
  • Seeing my Phoenix Travel Bug Guide go up on the Modcloth blog!

October is my favorite month and I just know that it's going to be a great one! I can't wait to celebrate all the goodness that the month holds - much cooler weather, trips to the pumpkin patch, walks around The Orchard, an awesome collaboration with Urban Outfitters, our eight year dating anniversary, Scott's 26th birthday and Halloween! Here's to an extra special and spooky month!

THROUGH THE CORN FIELD



Happy Monday! I hope ya'll had a lovely weekend filled with adventures, lots of coffee and all the fall vibes. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous around here and it's definitely starting to feel like the beginning of fall. Scott and I decided to take it pretty easy this weekend with just a soup date on the rainiest Saturday, a little shopping and going to bed by 9pm (literally -- yikes!). We definitely needed a calm weekend, though, because we've been tired! Between adjusting to my new work schedule and Scott's grad school work picking up, we've been busy, busy around here. However, I know that it's all for the best and I'm excited to finally be getting into our daily grind. I have a feeling this fall is going to be a very busy season in life, but I'm really excited for all that is ahead of us and the celebrations that this time of year brings (dating anniversary, birthdays, Halloween and more!).








On Saturday was Scott and I's eighth anniversary of the day we met! I shared the story of how we met last year (here), but almost wanted to write it out again because it's such a special story to us. We were so young and had no idea about the beautiful life that lie ahead of us, together, as a couple, as lovers, as man and wife. It's funny how things work out when fate steps in! Thanks for being my rock, hubby! Cheers to eight years!

This morning we woke up to a COLD house and a snuggly kitty that wanted to stay in bed forever (seriously, he's too funny). I got dressed with cooler weather in mind, so I might have gone a little overboard with the layering, but it just felt too nice outside to pass up. Tonight I really want to take our pups to the dog park and decorate our yard with the pumpkins we picked up yesterday - one giant one and two little ones! I hope ya'll have a wonderful day!

LULU*S RUSTIC FALL COLLAB 4/6



Today I'm back with style number four from my LuLu*s Rustic Fall Collab! Lately, I've been living in these six LuLu*s pieces I've been posting about over the last month. I'll be finishing up this fun fall collab by the end of the month, and I have to say, I've really loved feeling challenged to mix and match my wardrobe (or in this case, six pieces) in all different ways. This bohemian-esque dress has by far been my favorite piece to style! I love the color combo, the fun print and how easy it is to layer. If you're looking for one great dress this fall I would have to say go with this one, you won't be disappointed!

I seriously can't believe that it's only Wednesday! This week has been so crazy, but in such a good way. I had a great meeting with a client yesterday, and than Scott and I had dinner together at home and did a little shopping. We did both end up falling asleep on accident in all of our clothes, on top of our bed and with ALL the lights on in the house --oops! Guess we need to catch up on some sleep, but hey, isn't that what coffee is for? ;) Ok, I'm out! Have a great rest of your day, ya'll!
