So I’ve clearly really been failing hard in the blogging department. Since I have several topics I could write about but no real motivation to dig into any of those deeply, a currently update it is.
Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year. At the moment we’re in the midst of potty training (kill me now) so I’m not able to enjoy it as much because we haven’t left the house in days, but I’m using this weekend as a kick off for what is very obviously the best season. Baking, spending time outdoors without melting, holidays, food, festivals, leaves changing, amazing candles from Bath & Body Works, and it being almost time to put Christmas lights up make for one happy girl.
LOVING: All the things I just mentioned, but my favorite thing right now is definitely the changing weather. I’m an Ohio girl through and through when it comes to the weather and therefore NOT a fan of North Carolina’s extreme heat, so these 70-degree days are really making my life better. I want to wear all the fall clothes. I also love the release of all the seasonal products–makeup, scents, sweaters (not seasonal, but you know…), home decor, food, and even music. Makes me so happy.
READING: I’m really behind on reading at the moment and promised myself I would read 24 books this year. It’s October and I’m up to 19 if you count those I’ve edited. I’m going to start rereading the Harry Potter series since I haven’t read them in years and we own them. (It’s been pretty difficult to get to the library lately with our schedule.) I should definitely get going on that.
WATCHING: The Affair which is definitely my favorite show at the moment, though I hate Noah. We’re also into Scream Queens, Family Guy, The Blacklist, The Killing (which makes me cry like a baby because #emotions), and probably a lot of others that I can’t remember right now.
ANTICIPATING: Leo’s arrival in February, but since that’s still awhile away, let’s go with the holidays. I love ’em.
LISTENING TO: Ryan Adams’ cover of 1989, a lot of Macklemore because Isla loves him, and my playlists on Spotify. My 1904 playlist is on repeat most of the time and I’m forever adding new songs to it.
PLANNING: The launch of my freelance website which is REALLY behind. Like, so behind. Like…we probably-shouldn’t-even-talk-about-it behind. I need to get on this. It’s sort of a weekend goal if I can decide on a layout and I’ll make a post notifying the world when it’s launched. Dom and I are also planning a bunch of house projects. Leo’s closet should be done this weekend and I want to get a lot of things crossed off our to-do list like budgeting for November, getting a list of baby purchases together, finishing the rest of our Christmas list of things we’re getting for other people (which is almost done), and that’s probably it for the next few days. At least 99% of Leo’s clothes have been purchased and will be washed and hung this weekend after the closet is finished!
WORKING ON: Gaining new freelance clients, editing a new book starting tomorrow, and my website. Really gotta get on that.
WISHING: The weather would strictly feel like fall. No more of these random 80-degree days. I want the air conditioning off!
