Happy November! Last week brought the first day of a November and the last day of the Halloween season. While i'm sad to see October go, I am excited for all that the new month will bring. We kicked off the month by taking a quick flight to Sioux Falls, South Dakota! Scott and I had never been to South Dakota together before (and he not at all), so getting to explore such a beautiful place together, and during the fall nonetheless, was such a treat! After we spent four days exploring the Eastern side of South Dakota, we headed home to start a few whirlwind weeks -- which included celebrating our 11th dating anniversary, Scott's 29th birthday, the opening of Mezona Market and All Hallows' Eve! October is also a month full of celebrations, and this year wasn't any different! Ready for a few peeks into our home during the month of October? Here we go -- 

-- The bats are (were) back! I picked up these velvety bats last year from Target on a whim and they have officially been my favorite Halloween decorations two years in a row! I love how they can subtly add a little spookiness and Halloween spirit without overpowering the space. 

-- Raise your hand if you're constantly changing the throw pillows on your bed -- guilty as charged! The rust beauties in the back were a recent Target purchase and are adding so much warmth to the space. Mixed with two West Elm pillows and one vintage kilim piece, this set is giving off all the autumn vibes. 

-- Pumpkin carving is a must in our home and this year Scott and I carved this beauty together! While I love a good, complicated design -- I'm also all about the simple pumpkin faces that feel so classic and remind me of my days carving pumpkins when I was a kid. What about you -- are you into simple designs or more intricate ones?

I hope ya'll have an amazing week! Scott and are on the mend after both catching a nasty cold, but we did have an amazing time at the grand opening party for Mezona Market and Pineapple Triangle over the weekend! Happy Tuesday, friends!
