It's been a long week, friends.  Not my jovial self at the moment but I'm certainly working through it.  I have a flurry of emotions crashing around me at the moment and I'm compartmentalizing them as much as I can.  I hate carrying emotions and allowing them to seep into other areas of my life.  My goal today?  Try to see the good in everyone, be grateful for being alive and allow myself laughs and FUN.  Yep, fun.  That should help.

Below are some of my faves for the week.  Enjoy, friends.


I see pure beauty in this picture (although don't ask Davis what he sees... I'm sure it's jerky or something).  Fall is such a gorgeous time of year in Missouri and I absolutely love the changing of the leaves.  When Jackson was younger he would streak across our back yard at our family home and Davis and I would laugh that we swear a deer just ran through the yard.  Reminds me of him this morning!


Ah... bring it on!  I love boots.  Pretty much ALL boots (just some more than others).  These are awesome to me over a pair of tights or skinny jeans.  Little rugged, little urban.  LOVE!


I'm struggling with this in my life right now.  I absolutely love this.  Change is difficult for most people but changing the way we think about things is actually hard work.  The key is to decide if you WANT to change the way you think... sometimes changing what you think may not be the best thing for you.


Yep, another one.  Seriously cannot get enough pallets in my life!  I need to just select one, buy the pallets and get on with it already.  Love this!


I said the "Now I Lay Me" prayer with my Dad for the majority of my childhood every single night.  That makes this rendition even more special to me.  Very good reminder!


I have no idea where this picture was taken but I want to be there right now.   Elusive.  Quiet.  Beautiful.  Sign me up.


I see a lot of neutrals in our future this fall wardrobe season.  I love the matching up of the metal colors (which ironically fits hand in glove with the Obamacare healthcare system).


I absolutely love long, hot baths.  So relaxing, so indulgent.  Who wouldn't love a dip in this beauty?  PLEASE AND THANK YOU!


Now that I am going to be a Nana for a second time, I'm thinking I need a grandma hobby.  Quilting?  Or is this crochet?  I have absolutely no idea but I do love this blankie.  Looks very soft and the colors are quite relaxing.  So maybe I need to start googling how to do this stuff.  As if I have a lot of down time...


Oh... I wish I could say this is just giggly and not very true but I cannot lie.  Women, you know you do it!

Have a great weekend, friends!

  1. Jen, I think that lake is Lake Winnipasauki in NH or Vermont. I was there once and it just has it's own look
    I am sure I didn't spell it right either. Anyway, it is gorgeous in that area for the next few weeks.
