  1. Jessica’s idea of a really fun night out-on-the-town was to learn how to make pie, and it didn’t involve a single glass of vino. Her husband looked at her like she was slightly nuts when she said she wanted to drive 2 hours to a pie workshop. But with a love for apple pie {thanks to grandma} and a workshop hosted by Lexy with Proper Pinwheel in the mix, there was no stopping her. The party was featured on Style Me Pretty Living, and its worth checking out, plus it has a delicious apple pie recipe just in time for the holidays. You will see Jessica in a photo or two, and her pie, covered in hearts, of course.
  2. We read this blog post and wept. Not only was it beautifully written, but it broke our hearts and inspired us at the same time. It served as a reminder for us to appreciate the precious time we have with our families, to understand the miracle that our children are and what an honor it is to watch them grow, and how blessed our lives really are. Oren Miller, you and your family are in our prayers. You’re amazing.
  3. Make it a priority to Pay it Forward this holiday season like this young boy and father did. Get the tissues out…again.
  4. We’re obsessed with antler and deer decor this holiday season, and when combined with mixed metallics, gold, greenery, wood and wine, we are “head over deers.” This holiday craft party is absolutely gorgeous!
  5. Conni sets the table beautifully for Thanksgiving. Perhaps you can gather some ideas for your own Thanksgiving celebration?

Have a lovely weekend, and stay warm.
