Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays. The weather in October is generally really great here in Charleston and I love seeing all of the houses dressed with spider webs. The best part is seeing my kids faces light up over costume discussions. It’s a topic they pretty much never tire of. We still haven’t made any final decisions over, but here are some really great ideas courtesy of Amazon Prime!

Lilly’s year of being a gumball machine was my favorite of her’s yet. It was the same year that Fletcher was an ice cream sandwich and it was preeeeeettty much the cutest.

Apparently my life has been so busy that I’ve forgotten to even share a life lately post since July. I mean, I’m not really that busy. It’s weird because these posts are some of my most favorite to put together, I just forget how fast time goes I guess… Anyway, here’s a bunch of camera roll photos since late July!


I had so much fun at the Henry’s Hard Sparkling yoga event at the Dewberry.



It was such a pretty day and the doors were thrown open. When the really hard yoga started I stepped out to take some pics, ha!



Similar pair of my working out leggings here.



Metallics for fall – obsessed with these heels. So comfortable, I would love them in black, too. Also, I’m wearing this floral dress and this cylinder bag :)



Little crystal bee earrings by my friend Deirdre!



We spent a week in Asheville at the Grove Park with my whole side of the family (about 25 of us). It was such a special week all together! Below, I’m wearing this dress. I LOVE the colors, but it comes in grey as well.



The kids had so much fun together. Pretty funny that these girls all have the same Gap swimsuit!



In my favorite dress at the Grove Park ;)



Pretty Charleston…



At a little party at our house – some of my most favorite people in the world right here.



Card shopping at Mac N Murphy – where the selection is ALWAYS amazing.



Trying out the Hello Fresh meal kit! So fun.



Had a girls river trip with Lilly – she and Farris had so much fun on the boat, jumping off the dock, and just goofing off.



Oh, here we are at the Pitt St bridge for the eclipse that happened in August. What a neat experience!



I got these pink satin mules on sale, and you still can too :)



At the Habitat for Humanity fundraiser here in Charleston. Dress is from Tuckernuck.



When Irma came through Charleston. Unbelievable – but overall our city was so lucky.



I’ve been logging a lot of hours at the soccer field. Both the kids are playing this year and are loving it.



Just blending in at Gray’s house. Isn’t this portrait gallery wall cool?



Neighborhood scene…



With dear friends celebrating that pretty gal in the middle’s birthday.



Mountain trip near Asheville about 2 weeks ago. It was still quite warm but we had a great time. I brought our new game Utter Nonsense and you guys… it was SO much fun. If you like Cards Against Humanity then you’ll love this one.



And my most favorite pair of shoes this season – these Trademark mules!



Happy Thursday!

How cool is that bookshelf pendant light? And the bird drum chandelier would be so fun basically anywhere and A LOT less than the one that was on Anthropologie that one time…

My girl Lucy Cuneo is making me feel so happy today two fold – 1) her latest Caribbean Seas photography collection is so good i could cry. And 2) she is donating 100% of the net proceeds from this collection to the Caribbean disaster relief until the end of hurricane season (Nov 30th)! If you have ever dreamed about having a gorgeous beach aerial photograph on your wall, now is a great time to make it happen :)



All of the prints are offered in 3 different sizes with frame options! Check out her entire Caribbean collection right here!

As you all know we brought the kids to Harbour Island a couple of weeks ago. It was their first time ever going there – they didn’t even know that Coral House existed! We had THE BEST family vacation and I am so excited to share so many more memories with them there. I wanted to share a few more pictures than what I’ve put up on Instagram



It was funny at the beginning because Lilly kept walking around the house saying “why do they have all of our things here?”. Their minds were pretty blown when we finally came clean and told them that the house is actually ours and we’ve been working on it for over a year. Right under their little noses!



I’ve been looking forward to showing Lilly the pink sand beaches for years. This is her at the very moment she realized that the sand is pink. I didn’t tell her about it in advance because I knew it would mean more if she discovered it on her own. She couldn’t believe her eyes – “Momma, Momma, the sand is piiiiink!!!” I acted just as surprised as she was. :)


Lilly’s stripe swimsuit is Gap



They loved walking to Cocoa Coffeehouse every morning for smoothies and muffins.



Lilly and I really got into matching our surroundings. Fletch wasn’t as big of a fan. I’m wearing this scoop back swimsuit – it has a shelf bra and I’m obsessed with it. Turkish towel wrap is by Charleston Weekender.



The pink fridge might have been Lilly’s favorite thing in the house. It’s the perfect size.


Lilly is wearing Marysia Swimsuit


And we had the best time “re-discovering” the island with them.


Lilly’s swimsuit is Minnow Swim


My sunglasses are Karen Walker


In case you can’t tell Lilly likes the camera more than Fletcher does…



Josh and I made it out one night for dinner and drinks with some island friends. I’m wearing this black mini dress.



And this picture was a self timer hence the off center focus. But it’s the only shot I have of all of us together this trip. Can’t wait togo  back with the kids soon!



Check out Coral House on VRBO here and on instagram here :)
