Thanksgiving week was a lot of fun, but as usual it flew by way too fast! I had plans to reorganize my house after getting seriously inspired by this book, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. It may have been because I spent two weeks prior preparing for holiday gift idea segments for Woodfield Mall, and we hosted Thanksgiving at our home, and after that early Friday morning I woke up at 2 am, and headed straight to the mall to present the segments to NBC, WGN, and Fox News. Its amazing how much hard work goes into one 2 minute news segment, much less five! I will post links to the videos as soon as I get them.

After all of that chaos, I was so relieved when I remembered Adam was going to be watching The Nutcracker with his Nana and Pappy and his cousins, so Tom and I took advantage of our free time and headed to one of our favorite restaurants, Coopers Hawk, and just ordered a ton of appetizers and had a long relaxing lunch, which is definitely a rarity for us.

I wore a causal outfit but added some fun touches like my necklace by Jewels and Things, and this cute puffer vest by J.Crew. The vest is really warm and on sale right now!

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
