my favorite little people.

these two have completely and utterly stolen my heart. i didn't know it was possible to love two children that aren't yours so incredibly much? i mean, they are my sister's kids and my sister and i have always been very close...so go figure. but i honestly can't describe how much i love them...and all you aunts understand completely. and a big shout out to their incredible mom - my sister and best friend! you amaze me sissy.

a few things i probably need for the fall. you know?

i found these via anthropologie.com, etsy.com, and modcloth.com. and what i want more than anything is a clawfoot tub. someday!

oh fall, you are so fun.

this week will be a good one no doubt. i am on fall break and thrilled to be! Derek and i are going fall/winter clothes shopping today so of course i'm excited about that. who doesn't love fall?! iced tea to hot tea. sandals to boots. cardigans to jackets and coats. i found these lovely pictures of fall in Canada and wanted to share a few. happy Monday to you my friends!

my sweet friend Jo.

so, i have this friend named Jo. she is wonderful, smart, crafty, laughy (new word?), beautiful, kind, loving....this is where i go on for days. i love having Jo in my life and often times wish she would be roomies with me and D.

today, i was sitting at my desk after my 7th graders had left, thinking about how wonderful it would be to have a hot cup of something that is not tea (being that i have had my fill of tea in the last 2 weeks). at that exact minute, in walks Jo! she brought me a drink from Rembrandts along with the most adorable eraser i've seen in my years....here is a picture of it....it says "hoot hoot."
thank you, dear Jo. you made my whole day.
