Texas Does Autumn

I shared recently that I just really get homesick for Virginia in Autumn. Those neon reds and deep oranges and sunshine yellows that blanket the entire state have really been missed, but theres no sense in whining about what isn’t when you can enjoy what is instead. I was so thankful for the first sub-70 degree day this past week and that we needed sweaters to play outside. The cold front was just a tease and isn’t here to stay, but we took full advantage of the Fall feeling by heading to the pumpkin patch. Here are some photos from a really sweet day. 

Fall Favorites Roundup



If you were here last week, you know the drill! I am out of office to prep for my Holiday Collection of artwork, but I haven’t come empty handed. Here is a roundup of some of my favorite Fall posts since it’s October 10th and that’s Fall as Fall gets.

Let’s Chat, Shall We?



Okay friends, it’s painting time again. See that photo up there? It’s me contemplating all the things-namely whether or not I’d create a new Holiday Collection this year because the schedule just hasn’t allowed much time for it. But theres a phrase, isn’t there? That one we see floating around Pinterest and filling our feeds on Instagram? It goes something like this: Don’t say you don’t have time, say you won’t make time. And it’s true to some extent-although part of being a woman and a mother and a wife and a believer in general is laying down our lives, right? Trading in those hours we’ve spent on passions in the past-whether they be statistics or sleeping-in order to serve the ones around us?

September Favorites



September was a beautiful whirlwind of a month. Like most of you, it meant the new school year started and with it came a whole new routine to adjust to. Finally, at the very end of it, we are completely settled into the schedule and Fall just feels so wonderful already. Before we jump into October with both feet, I’m reflecting back on the things I watched, ate, read, listened to and wore in September. Here we go!
