Cozy Season Favorites


Cozy season is here & we are LOVING it!!! Every single morning I come down stairs & crack all the windows, flip on the gas fireplace & light our Oatmeal Cookie candle before starting the coffee. The fresh crisp air is magical. Sunday morning Mags walked out onto our deck (in her underwear) the temp was about 53 degrees & she walked back in, took a deep breath in with a long happy sigh to say "it feels sooooo good out there!" We are all so excited for fall fun & Halloween. Our entire month of October is full of parties & pumpkin patch trips & family photos. We are living on our front porch & back patio. Over the weekend we had the outdoor fireplace crackling as we listened to old country tunes under the string lights. The pumpkins are already at the grocery stores & Mags & I had to bring some of the cutest Jack Be Littles home with us to sprinkle around the house. Did you know the little white ones are called Baby Boo & the bigger ones are called Cotton Candy?!?! I learned that the other day & thought it was just the sweetest.

ONE // TWO // THREE // FOUR // FIVE // SIX // SEVEN 

Sharing some of my favorite cozy season finds with you today. The cozy cardigan is currently on sale & only $20! I have a coffee mug obsession & this five dollar BOO one is soooo perfect for Halloween season. The Oatmeal Cookie candle is my all time favorite EVER, we always have them burning around the house. If I had to burn only one candle forever, that would be it. Cozy season pumpkin soup bowl that can be used for just about anything. Furry slippers + chunky sweater blanket + all the festive wreaths!!!

A friend sent me this Asian Chicken Noodle soup recipe & I made it over the weekend. Let me just say --- you have to try it. It was so simple & soul warming! Mags even loved it with the curry, cayenne pepper & coconut milk. Next weekend we are making my annual pumpkin spice cookies with cream cheese frosting. Trips to the pumpkin patch & at least a few DIYs planned along with decorating our house with huge spooky spiders is on our calendar for the weeks ahead. Soaking it all up and hope you do too.

The Last of Summer 2020


In Kansas City today the weather will be California style, sunny with a high of 74 degrees! I've got the coffee brewing, windows cracked, and little pumpkins all over the house. My Amazon cart is full of all the spookiest Halloween decor, fall scented candles are burning everyday & my sister & I have been texting festive decor ideas back & forth for days.
I just have to do one last blog post of summer before we move on to all things pumpkin & spice! This mash-up is a little bit of everything that I want to store away in my heart & didn't get a chance to share here until now.

Powder Room Wallpaper in Smoky Rose from Anthropologie


I'm so in love with our romantic + feminine powder room. The smoky rose wallpaper printed by a British design house makes me think of my beloved British grandma from Norwich, England. The design was inspired by the romantic mist & grandeur of London & I just know my grandma would love this little space as much as we do!

Maggie Mermaid Met a Real Life Unicorn


2020 isn't stealing the magic from Magnolia's world! I'll be honest, the mom guilt hit hard earlier this year, I felt like she was missing out on so much that she'd never get back. She's only three once! And I know all you mamas totally get that feeling. I guess I still get a little sad about it when I think about this past year, BUT, big BUT, Ryan & I are trying our very hardest to do all we can to make this year one she'll always remember as being special & nothing short of magical. Music was cancelled but she started dance & we didn't go to the beach but we spent a lot of time poolside. We missed several birthday parties, but we started having small family gatherings as soon as we could. We didn't go to the zoo or the local farmstead, but we got a puppy! She's met all the kids in the neighborhood & loves to call them all her "friends" and even though she's the youngest of them all, they play so well with her. And she adores them! My sisters & I plan play dates with the cousins as much as we can. There is not a day that goes by that she isn't dressed as a princess & dance parties happen all day long.
