make room 2015 advent calendar + devotional¬†by the naptime diaries, mama bear necklace by rebekah gough, fikire leather pouch by fashionABLE, pinecone fire starter DIY from somethingturquoise, project life card organizer by stamp-n-storage, knitting/crocheting needle case by otterburnpq, sorry i’m late tee from thug life shirts, octopus ornament from crate & barrel

The Holiday season is upon us! One of my favorite parts of this time of year is everything feeling a bit cozier. That pinecone fire starter DIY is calling to me, or at least taking up candle making…

The advent calendar + devotional looks like such a lovely way to prepare for Christmas, and I think I’ve found the cutest ornament ever! The tee is so me it’s embarrassing, so I think my goal is to work on my attitude toward going to things for the next two months.

A few things on my list all fall into the organization category, not surprisingly. I keep finding myself digging around the bottom of my purse, so a pretty leather pouch sounds perfect. It’s a similar story with my knitting needles (and now crochet hooks!) – they are all in about four locations – and this is by far the loveliest case I’ve found. And I can’t really ever get enough of Project Life organizing systems. This one is amazing because the slots are customizable and it sits out so everything is visible, and therefore¬†usable.

Lastly, with all the baby shower prepping I’ve been doing mamahood is on the brain, and that sweet mama bear necklace is simply gorgeous.


P.S. Fun news! I’m starting a new job today! After a few days of delay it’s finally my first official day. This is also a big part of why my posting has been a little more sporadic than ought to have been. I’m a bit nervous but mostly excited. I’m still processing and deciding what this means for this space, but I intend to keep writing and posting – just maybe a little less frequently. We shall see!

Cheers + Happy Wednesday!

Hello, world! I’ve been MIA for two weeks because Matthew and I went on a trip to celebrate our first anniversary! It was so much fun that I needed a second week to recoup from the trip haha. I plan to finish up our wedding “series” next week, so stay tuned! But now, on to the links!
