Happy Friday!

October 18, 2013

leaf wall Happy Friday, friends! How was your week? Mine was wonderfully full and busy, and also a little exhausting. Today, when I woke up to pouring rain and driving wind, the adrenaline I’ve been running on for weeks just evaporated. The wind and rain haven’t stopped, and I feel a little like I’m moving through fog at the moment. Everything is taking just a little while longer to process!

This week, I had lots of meetings about upcoming projects, did a few interviews for my Marriage Snapshot series, and then hosted a lifestyle blogger meetup with almost thirty Dublin bloggers! The photo above is the photo backdrop (which I think we mostly forgot to use – too much chatting!) that Alex made for the night. Pressed leaves + stripy washi tape! So simple! I’ll be sharing more photos and details from the night next week. And next week will finally be the reveal of our bedroom makeover!

This weekend, Michael and I are going to an engagement party and a wedding afters (an Irish thing where you get invited just to the dancing part afterward, when you don’t know the couple that well), and I’m finally going to get to watch Michael play a little basketball! I’ve missed his first two games of this season, and I’ll miss the next two, so I’m excited to cheer him on this weekend.

Last night, I made pumpkin chocolate chunk cookies and fake mulled cider. I’ll share my recipes for that autumn combo next week! Until then, have a lovely autumn weekend!

    Hi Emily,
    You might be running out of rooms to make-over but I ran across this product out of the UK and thought of you (specifically two shades of white 🙂 This patterned paint roller works on walls, fabric, furniture, the sky’s the limit. Thought I’d share it. Seems like a very simple way to make a huge statement. The etsy shop:

    Oh, those are absolutely lovely! I need another room to use one! Think I might scoop one up and have it waiting for the perfect spot. Thanks so much for clueing me in! 🙂

    Yay, I’m happy to find another Irish-based blog 🙂 I’m really new to it.
    The leaf background is so pretty, I haven’t even noticed the leaves change colour myself, I need to pay more attention to these things, I love autumn.
