Happy Sunday! Come see what I’ve been up to this week, plus some of my current faves and new finds.

My little loves.

It’s been a rather uneventful week around our house and I think it must be the calm before the crazy whirlwind of the holidays. I’m trying to enjoy it while I can— naps, lazy walks, cookie baking just for fun, etc.

This week also brought abrupt change from fall to winter here in Utah. Last week I was in flip-flops and a light jacket, but now our heaviest coats, hats and gloves are necessary. Plus, our first snow flurries!

Goodbye fall, you were lovely.
