It was back to school week over here for Harper and Eloise & we are happy to report that it went so well!! The big girls are super excited to be going to school together!!!
It is bittersweet for us that Summer has come to an end. We loved our Summer together, being lazy and sleeping in and doing whatever we wanted every single day. This was also our first full Summer living in this house, last year it was still a renovation zone and we spent lots of time traveling & staying with family while our kitchen was out of commission. We have really fallen even more in love with Kansas City over the last few months & are looking forward to all of the excitement that Fall will bring!

^ The girls learned the handshake from The Parent Trap and are obsessed with doing it all the time.
I shared on Instagram a little bit about our motto for the school year, “Be Kind. Be Brave. Be Yourself.” In a world filled with so much negativity & hate, I think it’s more important than ever to teach this to our children and give them something tangible they can hold onto as they go out into this world. I hope you guys will join me in spreading this message of positivity to our kiddos!!!
To all of you who have little ones going back to school, I hope your transition is smooth & as tear free as possible. Cheers friends, as always, thank you for reading!!! We are forever grateful that you choose to be a part of our community! XO
Hey friends!! Happy Friday! We have had a rainy, grey-skies kinda day and we are all loving it so much! There’s something about cracking the door open and hearing the rain fall, so relaxing!! We have some fun projects to finish this weekend & are heading to the pumpkin patch with the kids on Sunday. So excited!! I wanted to share some Friday Favorites as well as a free chalkboard download for anyone who is in the Halloween decorating spirit!!! We need to put our black paper bats up asap!!
We tried this Butternut Squash Alfredo
recipe earlier in the week, it will definitely be added to our Fall dinner rotation!
I also wanted to include this super simple Hocus Pocus chalkboard download, I plan to frame this in a small frame for our kitchen shelving and cover it in cobwebs! 😉 I hope to add a dressed up version, I am playing around with chalk shadows & may add another version to the shop next week!
And finally, who is watching this season of The Voice & This Is Us?! Fall TV is so good!!
Hope you all have an amazing weekend!!! XO
Thank you all so much for your kind words about Claire’s birthday, it was such a fun party to plan! I wanted to share the chalkboard print that I made for her party, for anyone who may be planning a peach or fruity themed party in the future, or just to use a a fun, summery print to hang. This makes me want to use colored chalk more!
All you have to do is open the photo full size & save it to your desktop, then you are able to upload it to a photo printer or have it printed at staples/office depot as a poster size print if you’d like!
Happy Sunday! XO
