A few fave things /
1 / Theo the cat. Theo gave us a real scare and went missing on Sunday. Or, I should say, never came back on Sunday. If he gets out he loves to stay out all night and then always returns between 5-7am. He didn’t on Sunday. I was so worried about him and couldn’t bare the thought of him not coming home. He was a gift a few years back at Valentines day and honestly the sweetest gift I’ve ever received. He came with the name Theo, which means, Gift of God and I decided to keep it because that is just what he was. Tuesday, I decided to go over to animal services (the pound) and see if he might be there and he was. Apparently, he got picked up on Saturday morning only 2 streets over (maybe someone doesn’t like cats?). I was so relieved. He is home where he belongs and I’m trying to keep in as long as I can.
2 / The 52 List Project. This weekly listing journal, by Moorea Seal, is so cool. I’m a huge fan of journaling as I’ve been taking paper to pen since elementary school and I’m excited to add this to my ritual. The journal is absolutely gorgeous (pretty photos and illustrations). It’s divided into seasons and then weeks. Each week you are asked to list something. For instance, “List all of the people who brighten your day.” And, at the bottom of the page there is a “take action” suggestion. Since I’m all about journaling, listing and visual inspiration, I’m all about this project. I can’t wait to get started! This would make a super sweet Christmas gift. The journal starts in the winter season, so it’s perfect. I just might be ordering a few to give myself (order here).
I guess my other fave this week is Christmas. I won’t get into it since my other posts this week were all about that (if the holidays are more hard than happy read this and if you like simple DIYs for holiday decorating read this).
Well, I’m putting Christmas on hold for today as I’m off to do some Thanksgiving shopping for thirteen out of town guests that arriving on Monday.
Happy weekend, lovelies!
Happy Friday, lovelies.
Fridays are always great for sharing a favorite!
And, this week, pretty art is my favorite. This gorgeous, colorful, piece is by Naptime Diaries. Honestly, I’ve been a Naptime Diaries fan for awhile now, following them on Instagram and keeping up with their work, which is both gorgeous and meaningful.
I was super excited about this addition because my favorite pieces in my home are . . .

A few fave random things I should say . . . but, isn’t that life? Life can be so routine and so random, all at the same time!
1 / Nespresso’s new Pixie Clips. I never knew I’d love espresso, but I do. This little machine is fun because you can change out the side panels for different designs. And, their new espresso flavors are as good as their design, too. Bring on the busy weekend with a little shot of caffeine.
2 / Growing stronger and stronger with every step forward. I absolutely love this verse. I wrote more in depth about it on Instagram, which you can read here. But, in short if you are going through a major struggle, don’t let it swallow you, just keep moving. Be a person that digs deep in the midst of pain. Take that step today. It only has to be one step…and with it will come strength. Have a good cry 💦 because God bottles every single one of your tears and from that bottle, makes a brook of blessing 💗! You are so loved and every detail of your life matters to God.
3 / Saying Goodbye to Summer. It truly felt like the last week of summer and I’m finally coming to terms with it. We had a good swim on Monday and waved goodbye. I am bummed that I forgot to head to my favorite Ice Cream Shop before it closes for the season, but I’ll survive. Hello fall!
Do you have any favorites this week?
A few favorite (back to schoolish) things /
1 / Cool school lunches. I checked out Weelicous Lunches from the library and then I renewed it and now I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to buy it. I’m completely . . .
A few fave things /
1 / Cinnamon toast. Teddy bear cinnamon toast to be exact. My mom always made me cinnamon toast and when I make it for my kids It makes me feel like I’m serving them up a fragrant slice of comfort from yesterday for today. We had back to school shots on Wednesday, so we started the day with this. Toast is the ultimate comfort food, for me…and we are particularly fond of making animals out of our food, around here.
2 / Kate Morton books are my favorite fiction right now. If I wrote fiction, I imagine it would come out like this – ok, wish it would come out just like this. I can only find large print versions at the library right now, so large prints are my favorite, too. I’m currently reading The House at Riverton.
4 / Loosing a first tooth. Is there anything like it? Liam Brave lost his and he has been talking funny and making sweet smiles and funny faces ever since.
I also have a favorite sweater . . . .
