This week is a grab bag of mixed emotions. The weather is finally cold and feeling like fall, which is a huge change from the 70 degree weather last week. And I started a new job! I’m officially the Senior Marketing Manager at WD Partners in Dublin, OH.
I took a week and a half off to reset and focus on myself, creating more yummy recipes for you all and celebrating my friend Sam’s wedding (bridesmaid pic below!). It was a much needed refresh and chance to focus on myself, which is definitely something I’ve been working on.
The commute to my new workplace is much better, leaving me even more time to work on my morning routine before I head out. I’ve also got an easier commute home so I have some time to get my workout in in our home gym.
One of the projects Zach (my fiance) and I tackled while I had time off was creating a shiplap accent wall in our bedroom. We bought the shiplap weeks and weeks ago and it sat in our garage waiting for a weekend we had free to assemble the whole thing. I’m planning to do a full before and after reveal and plans on how we did it (we only spent $100!) so stay tuned!
I ALSO booked two wedding photography clients for next year and I am beyond excited. I did this styled shoot in the summer and had an absolutely amazing time!
Now that we’ve got a few life updates out of the way, let’s get into a few of my latest favorite fall finds, what’s next on the blog and where Zach and I are planning to travel.
THINGS I’M LOVING THIS FALL
Self love: This is my new obsession. You only get one life so you better love yourself! I could do an entire blog series on this. But to keep it short (for now), I got my nails done, tried a few new vitamins, took a few extra naps and bought myself this this top.
Most popular recipe on my site right now: Paleo Pumpkin Bars
Upcoming recipe I’m most excited to share: Maple Brown Butter Cornbread Muffins (yay Thanksgiving!)
Reading: Choosing Real is a book about celebrating life when life doesn’t always go the way you thought it would. It’s about going with the flow, appreciating the season you’re in and being grateful for what you have. I also love finished Love Lives Here and Present Over Perfect.
Loving: Chip and Joanna’s new home line, Hearth and Hand, coming to Target in November.
Saving for the wedding registry: all of Anthropologie’s platters and serving trays
Favorite Podcast: The Goal Digger by Jenna Kutcher
Next travel stop: Des Moines, Iowa next weekend for the Iowa vs OSU game
