La La Loving

Here’s what I’m la la loving this week . . .

Hanging Floral Arrangements. I can’t get enough of them. If I was hosting Thanksgiving I’d want a set up just like this one (arrangement by Old Slate Farm). I love the simplicity of the table and the drama dangling from above.

Are you entertaining this year? I always like to add a little entertaining item to my collection when hosting is on the agenda.

These words by Morgan Harper Nichols (I heart her work). By now, you know that I’m all about looking for beauty at all times, in all places.

The interesting thing is that much of life is waiting, yet much of waiting is life. It’s easy to be in a season of waiting and not fully engage in life because you feel in-between. In-between here and there. In-between grief and hope. In-between sorrow and joy. But in-between grief there is hope. In-between sorrow there is joy. A full life in the emptiest of places (Isaiah 58). I want to cling to joy. To look for the light. To live in the waiting.

A great way to practice engaging and participating, fully, in our lives is to be grateful. And, a great way to practice gratitude is to journal–to take the time to list the gifts we have been given.

I created a beautiful Gratitude Journal (sneak peek below) so that we could all practice, together.

Tortoise Earrings

Statement Earrings. And at the moment tortoise earrings to be exact. I’m not the best at changing out my jewelry, but when I do, it’s usually earrings! This probably has something to do with being a child of the 80’s (and maybe my penchant for tortoise hoops too). Speaking of earrings, these sparkly stars are perfect for the holidays.

Slow Saturday morning breakfasts. Life has been major hectic in our house–so we live for slow Saturday mornings and a hearty homemade breakfast. This Blueberry Coconut Baked Oatmeal  is on my list to try next. We love oatmeal and crumbles and this recipe (packed with fiber) looks the perfect combo.

A good hat. I’ve been wanting one like this for ages, but never seem to commit. And, now that my hair is shorter, I’ve really had my doubts. That is until I just saw this grey hat (similar to shown) on a girl with shorter hair–so fun. Speaking of hats, I’ve also really been loving my pink beret.

PS- It’s that time of year of where Gift Guides abound on the interwebs. I’m working on compiling one. Is there anything, in particular, you are looking for or that you’d love to see?

What are you are loving this week? I’d love to know!
