Saturday Mornings

It's a cloudy Saturday morning, and we are celebrating with pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes and Netflix. It's a perfect day so far.

Beautiful Hydrangea Blooms

These photos were taken in Russell's aunt's yard...can you imagine having your house surrounded by this beauty? What a lucky lady she is (and how much hard work she must put into it!) I was so inspired by her beautiful landscaping.

Fall Weekend Fun

I'm currently enjoying the perfect Sunday - curled up on the couch with my feet up, watching football, and relaxing after having one of the most full and fun weekends I've had in awhile.
