A few reasons why I woke up smiling today, aside from the fact that it is September and that means Fall starts this month. One. Claire is two months old today! She is smiling & talking baby talk, and her little chubby cheeks are cuter than ever. We just adore her so much! Happy two month birthday little Claire Berry Pie!!
Two. College football! We are so excited for the three day weekend ahead of us & can’t wait to kick off football season! We are going to celebrate my dad’s birthday Saturday & have some friends and family over to watch football and eat tons of good food. I am also especially excited for football gear this year, if you follow us on Instagram (@jlgarvin) you may have seen a sneak peek of these hand-lettered football shirts in collaboration with my friend Katie’s shop, they are available now for purchase here and 15% off with coupon code gamedaydeal. I had to put them on the girls as soon as they came, they are super soft and come in adult, kids & baby sizes. And grey makes them universal for accessorizing with any of your favorite team colors!!
It was a chick-fil-a on the porch kind of afternoon! 😉 I love how Harper chose to accessorize her shirt, always a tulle skirt & glitter!
And three. Some super exciting, and also bittersweet news over here today, we are putting our house on the market!
That’s right, we are moving. We have decided that although we love our house soooo much, we really need a yard for the kids & a little more space. We want to be able to have grass, a place for a swing set & kiddie pool, space for the girls to run & play. Our backyard is beautiful, for adults, we love it & spend so much time out there. But because of the shade from the 60+ pine trees, we cannot grow grass, and the yard is such a steep hill that it requires a retaining wall (the ivy) for drainage, so it is not kid friendly at all. We are sad, but also super excited to see where this adventure may lead us. We have a few options on the table, including new construction which would be really fun. We have met with a few builders, gone over floorplans & lots, and have also checked out quite a few other homes for sale in our area. There are pros & cons to both building and buying, so we are just going to continue checking out our options & see what happens!! I will share more later this week! 🙂
So I wish you all a happy September first, here’s to finding lots of things to be happy about today! XO5
