girl time

since the hubby left for alaska, my mom and I have been getting in some major girl time over here.
she is on the tail-end her summertime break,
so her little mill city retreat could not have come at a better time.
even though i still have my 9-5 to report to,
it's amazing how a little break from the norm can be just the ticket. i feel amazingly energized!

whenever mom visits, she brings flowers. dahlias are some of my absolute favorites! you will think i'm crazy, but they make me so excited for fall. i'm most definitely an autumn girl at heart, and can't wait for crisp breezes, pumpkin spice lattes, scarves + boots, pumpkin patches, bright this list could go on forever!

so far we've shared coffee + laughter + good music + delicious food + long neighborhood walks (after sunset) + creative ideas. it's amazing how she tends to make everything better.

oh! and look at mister:). he is the cutest thing in the world.
he loves loves to crawl under blankets. it doesn't really matter which one.

sometimes i'll walk into my bedroom, and the only thing i'll see is a little tail sticking out from beneath my bed spread. it's hilarious.

i've found a new favorite spot for a vase of flowers! perched on the fireplace. love:).

hope you are having a beautiful week, friends!


  1. You, your mom, and your cat are so adorable. I always think of you during the fall. It's just around the corner. We'll have to virtual have a pumpkin spice latte date over the internet.
