So October is coming to a close which means we're gearing up for the holidays. I just love this time of year. We are located in the lovely state of Washington so we definitely experience all four seasons. The summers here are beautiful but when it's not raining, autumn is my favorite.
I posted these on Instagram but wanted to share them here since I have a little more room to get personal. Last weekend, my husband and I took our son to a new (new to us) pumpkin patch, Fir Point Farms. We have been going to the same one every year for as long as I can remember. Rain and hectic schedules forced us to try out a new place and surprisingly... we had a good time. And I say surprisingly because I'm a creature of habit, so yeah. Anyway, the setup was really great for kids AND adults. Definitely going to check them out again next year. So, that's my mister. We have been together for 12 years and married for 8 years. Our kiddo is just my everything. He is my joy. He's going as Rusty Rivets this year. First costume that actually fits!
Those Vans are just my all-time favorites ever... I mean ever. I wear them constantly. Whenever they wear out, I get new ones. I'm just obsessed with them. I'll probably go buy another backup pair right now. Don't get me wrong, I love my dresses, my heels, my luxury handbags, being girly and elegant, but I am also just as content with my Vans, RVCA baseball cap, Herschel backpack and oversized hoodies. No matter what, I like to keep it simple. And that includes jewelry, wardrobe, home decor... everything. Can you tell? We're all busy people and don't have time for fussy. Right?!
Because I make all the jewelry by hand, I obviously have a large collection of pieces. Believe it or not, I can be pretty bad about switching out my jewelry every day but I do like giving my necklaces a healthy rotation. I say this all because I wanted to point out that I test run all my jewelry before listing. I want to make sure that everything is comfortable, practical and beautifully easy to wear. Some pieces never make the cut and some get tweaked over and over until I think it's perfect. Last weekend I really loved wearing the new Valenteen Necklace. I had on the thin black sweater you see above and the gold tassel just popped. Let me know if you ever have questions about which pieces will go with what, sizing, whatever. I'm happy to help!
