seven // welcoming fall with my albion fit striped capris (sold out but these are similar and so cute) and go long crew top with thumbholes (the best!) - they are some of my most comfortable workout gear!

ten // Rocky was ready for the OSU game Saturday with his jersey and his "dog beer" toy ;)
eleven // the California-based coffee, Peet's Coffee and Tea, just opened up new locations in Columbus! We first had Peet's when we went to San Francisco and are thrilled to have it by us now. It keeps a little piece of California here with me...

speaking of California, hard to believe we will be there next Weds! Ah! Cannot.wait.

twelve // our first caramel apples of the season and it seems like someone wanted his own! ;)

Then, something really exciting happened last night...I got the phone call from my best friend that she is ENGAGED!

absolutely gorgeous, right? He did so good!

I am so over the moon happy for her! I'm sure I will be posting about an engagement party soon enough. :) Congratulations Lindsay and Shawn...love you guys.

PS: House update...we are getting a new roof today AND are almost finished putting up our new doors. Billy has been working so hard on them! I feel so old/lame sharing these, but if you have a house, I know you can relate to my excitement.

follow me on instagram for more of these pictures!
