harvest table: happy thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! Somehow my favorite holiday completely snuck up on me (finishing up our 2013 weddings and doing some Lovely Day 2014 planning may have gotten in the way…) but I can’t wait to dive head first into stuffing and cranberry sauce at my in-laws house tomorrow.

fall: in love!

Fall! Around here, Autumn is one of our favorite times of year. Apple picking, pumpkin carving, apple-cider-donut eating wrapped in scarves and stylish trenchcoats? We absolutely love it.

You see, my Mother is a real Southern lady. She was […]
