PICK 6 * FALL

I have to admit I wasn’t so welcoming to fall when it started to show its face around here. I was sad to see summer coming to an end, but then I remembered that there are lots of things l love about fall, like working out and not being fearful of a heat stroke…
This weekend I’m officially welcoming fall with a hike in the North GA Mountains followed by a wine tasting (I’m setting my expectations low for the wine, but we will see). I also hope to get my hands on some apples and spend Sunday putting up jars of apple butter. Very fall indeed.

COVETTING * SUMMER SHADE

I’m headed to Savannah this weekend for a little boating and beach time. I must confess that I spend the majority of my time in the sun, but these Sombrilla’s from Hollie and Harrie have me seeking a little shade. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Hollie and Harrie ship these stylish 95% UV protection Sombrilla’s worldwide.

WEEKEND PLANTING…

This weekend consisted of equal parts productivity and relaxation. Saturday I did some much-needed painting, took the pup and a few brews to the dog park, followed by a night at the Drive-In for Hunger Games and fried chicken. We’ve been discussing garden boxes for a while now, and I think we are finally planning to get them going in the backyard. We started small with the beds out front and spent the day digging in the dirt. By the end we were exhausted, but the results are pretty rewarding. I can’t wait to get started on the edibles! See more photos and hopefully more progress here!

THE BRIGHT OUTDOORS


Brighten things up and get ready for summer entertaining with these colorful patio additions. I don’t need new outdoor cushions, but sure want these Marimekko for Crate and Barrel ones!
