Our Fall Bucket List

In Uncategorized

Yesterday was the first day of fall and I could not be more excited!  This is my favorite time of year.  The scents, the activities, and, being a Georgia girl, the (eventually) cooler temperatures.  A few months back I created a rotating seasonal bucket list (you can see it HERE) and the time finally arrived to change it for fall.

Did we check everything off of our summer list?

Build A Sand Castle
Picnics
Swim As Much As Possible
Go To The Aquarium
BBQ

Almost!  And we technically ate snacks while at the beach so, that’s sort of a picnic, right?  Sadly, there was no BBQing to be had.  We had some time towards the end of the summer but that’s when the weather decided that rain was a good idea.  EVERY DAY!  But we had a wonderful summer filled with swimming and camps.

As for fall, I want to do the traditional fall activities.  I always do!  But this year, I have my heart set on apple picking.  I’ve never done it and know it will be fun for the boys.

My home town has its annual fall festival this weekend and I’m beside myself.  I can’t wait!  This weekend marks the 33rd one and I wouldn’t miss it.

I’m also looking forward to getting the boys Halloween costumes together.  Gav wants to be a “firefighter monster” (for Halloween and as a career choice apparently) so it should be interesting.  Or, since he’s 4, he may change his mind next week.  Stranger things have happened!

What’s on your fall bucket list?

Little Happy Corners // Living Room Mantle

In Uncategorized

Y’all…these past couple of weeks have been nothing but straight up adulting! There has been a surgery, schedule conflicts and reorganizing, one kid with an eye problem, both kids on a breathing treatment, party plan/prep, etc.  I’ve had to let some things go here and there for the time being and, unfortunately, one of those things was this wonderful little space of mine.  I hate that, but it happens.  Slowly but surely, we’re getting back in a groove, finding new ways to tackle different issues and so on and so forth.

So today I want to share with you one of my happy spots in our house, the mantle in our living room. This little space has undergone a few makeovers over the two and a half years that we’ve lived here but this is, by far, my favorite one.  I don’t really see this changing anytime soon.  It’s bright, soft, and cheerful with family heirlooms, keepsakes, and good vibes.  Enjoy!

The window is one of three that hubby picked up at a garage sale for me at a steal of a price.  All three for $15!

The cameras were pasted down to me by my mom and belong to my great grandfather.  One of them, not sure if it’s one of these or one that sits on our piano (you’ll see that one of these days when I finish that area!), was actually made by him.

This little book is very special to my husband and me.  It held our rings on our wedding day.  Some of the details on it are from my grandmother’s jewelry box.

XO, Kelly
