It’s been three years since I walked down the aisle in a dress that was slightly too long on a day that was slightly too cold (and yet, perfect) to marry Corey. When I get too stressed out or am being ridiculously pessimistic about something, he brings me back down. When I’m working long hours or spending nights studying, he makes sure that the house is clean and dinner is cooked. He makes me laugh. Every single day. He is the most sweet, positive, and dedicated person I know. I can’t imagine life without him.
Darling, I love you to the moon and back. Happy anniversary!

Hi guys. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and at least got through your Mondays unscathed. I think that’s about all we can really ask from a Monday. I had a pretty delightful weekend filled with fally things like a really great chili recipe that I made Friday night, a trip to Huntersville’s fall festival (not as many pumpkins or Halloween things there as I would have hoped but the quesadillas were delicious), a bike ride through the trail in Davidson and in to downtown for a vanilla coke at the soda shop, a trip to the pumpkin patch to buy my front step pumpkins for the year, and then dinner with my lovely sister and brother-in-law. Plus we ended our Saturday with Krispy Kreme and Ghostbusters. You’d be hard pressed to find a weekend much fally-er than that. Since fall is my favorite time of year, I try to embrace it as much as I can while it is here and before winter comes and craps everything up. One way I like to embrace it is changing my home decor. Mine obviously looks a little more spooky and Halloweeny than most people would probably prefer for their own houses and I totally get that. But I do like the idea of having a few items that you bring out every year to change things up in your house just enough to help you enjoy the season a bit more. That’s the great thing about seasons after all. As one of my best friends, Taylor, commented the other day, one of the best parts of living in North Carolina is that just when we start to get sick of one season, a new one comes and sweeps us off our feet. I am sure many other states are that way as well. And I don’t think it could be more perfectly said than that. Here are some items that might make a nice addition to the home to help us all embrace the fall.
pumpkin candle/dishtowel/sparkly blanket/wooden cake stand/agate bookend/white pumpkins etc./pom pom pillow
bronze pillow/white basket
A note about the agate bookends. They have a really cute collection of agate bookends, trays, and coasters at Target right now so if you want something agate, you may want to go look at your local store cause it would probably be cheaper than this West Elm one. However, they are not on the website so I couldn’t link them up. Silly.

I met Julie several years ago through my friend Lindsay. I often wonder if she ever sleeps because she is constantly training for her next triathlon. But not just any triathlon. She competes in like World Championship Triathlons. Ridiculous. She is training for an Ironman right now and just looking at her Facebook posts about training makes me want to take a nap. But she is also one of the sweetest, most genuine people you will ever meet. Ever since I’ve known her, she’s been with Jason. Julie and Jason are just one of those couples that make it seem easy. They are so thoughtful around one another and truly seem happy. When they first got engaged about half a year ago (has it been that long?!), Julie asked me if I would take their engagement pictures. Obviously, I was honored. We decided to make a trip to Charleston out of it because really why not. Lindsay came as well to take care of makeup and hair (so good right?) and Ben and Corey tagged along to make the trip even more fun. This magical lake/swamp area is actually the location where they got engaged, and also where they filmed that canoe scene in the Notebook. You know the one. I was on cloud nine all day long shooting these two lovely people. Congratulations you two – I just know your lives are going to be amazing.
