Five Joys

Happy first day of October! I love this time of the year. Crisp air, cooler temperatures, and the anticipation of the holiday season; it’s all so exciting. We just booked our flights back to Indiana for Thanksgiving and I cannot wait to spend time with family. Here are five things, big or small, that brought me joy over the past week.

    Love it!! My five joys this week: i) Taking a free barre class at a new gym opening up, ii) booking my hotels for my upcoming Asia trip, iii) Taking a run around beautiful Sloan’s Lake, iv) sharing a bottle of wine with some friends on a patio, and last but not least v) Reading this blog post!

    Thanks for this, sometimes its good to sit down and think about the small things that have happened in your week that give you joy! 🙂

    Great list! I’m definitely with you on the pumpkins outside the grocery store, the cooler weather, and the pumpkin lattes. I also enjoyed spending some time with extended family, and an amazing stuffed pepper soup recipe I discovered on Pinterest.

    Here’s to another great week!

    All your pics are perfect and pretty much what made you happy would make me happy too! I love me some Starbucks… a sweet sleeping babe, white pumpkins for the win and a fresh new cut always does the trick! Thanks for sharing your happy with us!

    That chambray shirt with the black ripped jeans is adorable….Love the contrast. One of my favorite looks to do.

    Hi Lee Anne!

    PSL’s + cooler weather + pampering = just in time to save our sanity hehe

    It’s nice to be able to open up the windows and let the natural air flow. I’m happy I can do yoga with the windows open– sans the AC attempting to ruin the zen when it powers on and off. 😛

    Gavin smashes his face into the duvet feather down cover as well. He isn’t discriminatory either. If he finds sheets, he giggles away and face plants. Babies are so silly! I guess they love the way it feels.

    Love the shirt, it looks like a J.Crew one I have! I hope it starts getting cooler around here, your boots are adorable and I want to start wearing mine!

    I love the 5 things types of posts because they are so personal to share little things here and there. I’m obsessed with those white pumpkins!

    I this ALL! Perfection! What brought me joy this week was drinking hot chai tea lattes and not sweating since it is finally getting a little cooler out here 🙂 Now I am dying to be able to wear my flannels!
