Another weekend, another wonderful week down. I'm currently in the process of planning a Halloween party back home in Hot Springs, Arkansas and it has literally been a task. It's not so much the planning, but the effort to bring everything together and I have this weird obsession with making everything perfect. Ahhh! I have had a lot of fun getting things together for it though, and I am super excited to see a lot of people. I haven't decided if this will be a yearly thing yet, but for this year, I will be thrilled to have a reunion with some old neighborhood pals. So anyway, onto what you're really here for. Here are the things that made my past week wonderful.
1. This decor.
Because I've been on a mad dash through my house to get rid of unnecessary items. I've been following this blog: Reading my Tea Leaves to gain a grasp on living more minimal in the city here. It's a hard task, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Stay tuned for the finished home tour of our home.
2. This meal
Because it's all local. The zucchini and carrots are from our own garden and the chicken breast is from a local farm here in the valley.
3. These changes
The fall season is rolling in slowly here in the valley. The changes in the tree colors and the rain will be here before we know it. Sad to see summer go, but fall is a good time to clean up the yard and get things ready for the back-to-back holiday season.
4. This tea
Because I am a tea drinker and these brands are some of the best I've had. You can get the Coconut Chai below and the Blackbid Tea here.
5. This guy
Because he works hard and is appreciated every day! He gives so much and doesn't know how important he is to two people that love him a lot. Thanks for being who you are, Jeff. We love you so much more than words can express!
