A few different gift ideas for your friends and family and gift exchanges.

Shout out to Nordstrom for carrying Harry Barker (that’s one of their dog toy bins up there). It’s a Charleston company and I bet one of my good friends designed that bin! Pet gifts are always a good idea for your fur loving friends and Harry Barker is the best. That How to be Parisian book is getting all sorts of press. Seems like all the cool kids are drinking moscow mules out of copper mugs (except me because I don’t like moscow mules). And aren’t those half dipped plates cute? There’s a whole collection of them. Here are some more fun ideas from Nordstrom’s Wit & Wonder gift boutique. And it’s a great time to shop over there with their 40% off sale!



Thank you to Nordstrom for partnering on this post.

Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving. We’re not traveling this year which is a nice change from our usual hectic holiday tour of families. We took the kids to see Penguins of Madagascar at the theatre last night for Fletcher’s birthday (so fun). And today we’ll spend the day with Josh’s parents and have dinner at Cypress (yay for not cooking!). I’m not sure what all the weekend will entail but I do plan to spend a lot of time on my favorite kindle reading some books (just finished this book 2 nights ago and I highly recommend it) and maybe even getting up a Christmas tree. If I were hosting Thanksgiving again this year I would’ve loved to have re-created this whole snack situation. Maybe for another get together sometime soon.




I’m so thankful for my family and friends, health and happiness, and this space that I have here with you all. I hope you all can enjoy a beautiful day with your loved ones. Please stop by early tomorrow morning for a full tricked out list of Black Friday sales and my favorites.

Every time Lilly wears this Old Navy sweater jacket I call her Chanel. It totally reminds me of Jackie O in Chanel and Lilly loves the nickname.





Awkward hammock photo right up there. She had to try it out though.

Old Navy’s Black Friday sale launched early and they’re offering 30% off of everything. Such a great time to stock up on some warm clothes and gifts. Here are a few more kid favorites!



These pictures were taken at the beautiful Linwood Inn outside of Charleston, SC, a charming little bed and breakfast built in 1883.
