AUTUMN IN THE GROVE

I've sat down numerous times this week to write this post, but the words just didn't seem flow. Does that ever happen to you? Some may call it writer's block, others may just say it was time for a break. With all that's been happening this past week, it felt right to just take things slow and focus on the present. Now that I've had a few days to refocus, I'm happy to be back here. Sometimes it's hard to believe that so much of Scott and I's life can be found here in this little blog, but at the same time -- I couldn't be more thankful to have this diary of our life. Although this fall has gone by quite in a blur, I'm hoping to be back here more often to share what we're currently loving and doing -- like spending time in our favorite grove on a beautiful autumn day. 

Although this autumn has been a very warm one, I've been doing my best to slowly pull out my cold weather items and wear all the fall hues while I can. This is the first year I've ever considered decorating early for Christmas, and while I really want to make our home feel even more warm and cozy with a decorated tree parked right in our living room and twinkle lights hanging from the window sills, I am going to hold off just a bit longer and really appreciate everything fall (because ya'll know how much I'll be missing this season when it's over). 

This little Free People number was a favorite purchase from last year, and something I've pulled out of my closet more times than I care to share this season (it's well loved, promise!). The color is perfectly autumn, and it's breezy enough to be worn even on the hottest fall days in Phoenix. I plan on pairing it with tights and a leather jacket here very soon, but they also have a similar one out this year -- in case you're interested in it for your Friendsgiving or holiday party get-togethers!

Scott and I are finishing up a few projects this evening, and then we're probably going to watch a few episodes of Gilmore Girls. We're trying out hardest to get through the complete season before the new episodes air! I'll always be on Team Jess, but I'm so curious to see what the reboot brings. What do you think, will she end up with Dean, Jess, Logan or? Place your bets, mates! ;)
