  • Weekend: Embracing Fall + Slowing Down


    I finally embraced fall this weekend. The weather here in Charlotte has been incredible with temperatures in the 60s, sunshine and Carolina blue skies. I kept my weekend really, really low-key and stayed home as much as possible to continue this "nesting/grounding" phase I'm in. It was perfect. I always consider Friday the start of [...]

  • Fall For Real + Recent Eats

It feels like a breath of fresh air. Personally, I am excited for [...]
