I printed off this free quote from Dear Lillie, she has one for every month of the year. This quote about September is so true, it is a month with all of the joys of the summer weather and the excitement of fall. I popped the quote into a frame and put in on the shelf in our family room.
I don’t remember where I bought this vase filler but it looks festive around my candles.
I bought this fall garland at Pottery Barn and I debated for a while on where to put it. Originally I thought it would look nice in the dining room but after playing around with it I thought it might be fun on the mirror in our family room.
Our living room looks so much different than it did last year when I shared my trash to treasure side table makeover doesn’t it?
I’m so glad it’s fall!
It has been 3 years since we saw Brad and Alicia (they used to live in Chicago when we lived there). They were both in my class at Alma College and we have had so great memories!
Alicia and I were neighbors in the dorms and lived together after we graduated. She is such a special friend and I am SO GLAD they were able to stay with us!
This is our group, Anthony and Bill from Ireland, Alastair from Scotland, and Chris and myself. I tried to follow along with all of their jokes but it was tough with all of the different accents.
I had to snap this picture of the three guys in the back of our truck, it shows just how roomie it is back there!
Future Stanford Cardinal!
Sunday we walked the dog and hung out around the house. I know I am a little late to The Hunger Games party but I was finally able to read the first book over the weekend, it was such a quick read. I’m not a fast reader but I couldn’t put it down. I started the second book Catching Fire yesterday. We’ll see if I have enough free time from organizing to read the whole series by the end of the week.
