September Favorites

OCTOBER. All things pumpkin spice, and candles, and coffee, and scarves, and boots, and leggings, and Halloween, and the list just keeps on going. Oh my. Fall is here ready or not. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet though, here’s a recap of September!


pumpkin pancakes :: hot oats :: beer :: dessert :: eating out 


half mary training :: vinyasa yoga :: kickboxing


21st birthday :: a bridal shower :: spending time with [extended] family & friends :: blowouts :: ED SHEERAN :: Nashville :: road trips 

Onto another month, a chance for a fresh start, new chances, and the beginning of another chapter. xo

27. Your celebrity crush(es).ED

Ed Sheeran would probably be my #1. Freaking love him. I mean after all, I did name my cat after him. Must meet him someday (he did once smile and wave to me and Layna on our best day of our lives. So at least I have that if I never get to meet him ;) ). x400_300_Ansel_Elgort_Gets_it_Hot4_742x1024_.jpg.pagespeed.ic.2kSdcxzMzZ
