As The Moon Waned

Toward the middle of November I always get an itch to listen to an old favorite - Bon Iver, in particual Blood Bank off of his Blook Bank EP. Something about this song sings to my heart and hits me at my core - and while it's beautiful all year round, it sounds even more amazing when it's chilly outside and everything around you is quiet and still. Do you have one of those songs that just hits you at the heart? It may sound silly, but there are certain songs that I look forward to listening during different parts of the year - Blood Bank being one.

Lately, my evenings have not only been filled with seasonly appropriate music (and I'm not talking Christmas music just yet!), and focusing every spare moment I have on our wedding. I know a spoke to this a little bit last week, but truthfully, we're knee deep in planning and our days are full - so full to the point that 9pm sounds like an acceptable bedtime (and it usually is when I fall asleep on the couch mid-sentence - woops!). With that said, I know have been a little quiet around here lately, and I wanted to let you all know that I truly appreciate all of your encouragement during this very exciting, and very busy time in our life. Scott and I feel so blessed to have so many people excited for our big day! We're down to a little more than two months, and we couldn't be more thrilled!

On a side note, here's a short list of things that have been making my days extra special lately:
1. Gingerbread Americanos at Starbucks! Heyooo!
2. Essie's After School Boy Blazer polish - digging the dark nails lately.
3. Boom Chicka Pop sea salt popcorn - this stuff is SO good and is the perfect lunch treat.
4. Lucky & In Love - my dear friend Katherine's wedding planning and design company. Katherine is helping us with our big day, and let me tell you, she is one talented lady!

Outfit details:
Hat: Urban Outfitters
Blouse: old online boutique
Scarf: Target
Bracelet: Gift
Jeans: Levi's
Booties: c/o Blowfish Shoes

I'm off to pick up a gingerbread americano and get a little walk in - it's beautiful outside!

What music have you really been into lately? What has been making your days extra special?

  4. My extra special ingredients for a good day are: a mocha from Lola, playing with the R2D2 lego set with my hubby (nerd alert), and my new BP booties from Nordstrom that are simply perfect.

  5. Bon Iver is definitely my favorite late fall/winter music. I love old Iron & Wine around this time, too. Love your outfit! Wish I could pull off hats like that as well as you!
