evening light + some weekend links

With the time change, I have been noticing the light pouring in through the windows as I begin dinner prep. Each room has a different glow to it as I walk throughout the house. I tried capturing a few bits for you. And then, I left the dinner I should have been preparing to find the younger two running off some yaya's in the backyard.

It was loud and silly and just plain crazy out there. I watched the golden sunlight fall upon them as they laughed and ran and chased their furry friends around our tiny suburban yard. Happy, free, lovely.

And that's it. A sweet little moment amidst an otherwise chaotic week. It was a moment of fresh air for my soul…. it's funny how the simplest change in our course can be just what we need.

These bits of light are for you….

some weekend link love…..

Jade and I spent a whole day together in our favorite little city last Saturday. We ate lunch here, the lentil mushroom salad is amazing. Later we walked downtown & stumbled upon a flea market. We found this sweet local shop, beautiful. Dessert was salted caramel gelato in a pool of espresso aka affogato. Oh my~

My new favorite cookbook. It's like Deb unplugged, right there in the kitchen with me. Awesome.

The youngest kiddos have been slightly obsessed with practical jokes.

Sew Mama Sew is offering a class on craftsy. How to make a reversible zipper tote. And it's free. Is anyone getting a good head start on handmade holiday goods? What are you making this year?

My holiday baking bug is waking up. It's especially looking for chocolate-peanut butter. And caramel.

A year ago this week, love notes.

Last but not least. If you could keep our sweet new furry girl in your thoughts, we would be so grateful. She's getting spayed today and I can't help but be a bit of a worried mama for her.

Happy Friday….

  1. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures filled with sunlight. It just hit me the other day that it is dark at 5:30 around here. 😦 We definitely took the after dinner sunlit hours for granted. I will be thinking of your sweet puppy girl. She is really beautiful.


  2. Oh yes, I do love watching light fall into the house. It's taken me much trial and error to capture it with a lens. It makes me feel a bit like a modern day van Gogh, trying to capture light in my art medium 🙂


  3. Yep, about the same time here. We won't lose much more throughout the winter though. I do miss the after dinner light as well. Our furry girl is doing well! Thank you for thinking of her. I'm currently trying to keep her from getting too wild with a game of tug-of-war with her furry big brother. Post-op instructions are to keep her quiet and mellow for ten days. Uhm, yeah right!?! haha…..
