Happy Halloween!


Happy Halloween! No big plans for us tonight. Bill may be working late and if you know him at all, this is not his favorite holiday anyway. I dearly miss handing out candy. We now live in a loft-style building downtown so no trick-or-treaters here. Instead, it will be a quiet night in with a home cooked dinner, a bottle of wine and maybe a scary movie...maybe. (I'm a huge baby!)

Of course, I still bought three bags of candy. Big mistake. It was actually for a party we hosted a few weeks ago but there's a lot leftover. So there's dessert for tonight! My favorites by far are Twix and KitKats.

What is your favorite Halloween candy? Also, can't wait to see what the little ones are dressing up as this year. I'm so out-of-touch...I have no idea what the "cool" costumes even are this holiday season!

Happy Haunting!

Happy National Cat Day


Happy National Cat Day!

Although, who are we kidding? Every day is Cat Day in our house. Bella loves when Bill takes a nap. It's the best time to use him as a pillow and snuggle. I can't not mention Daisy but I'm sure she's celebrating in kitty heaven. And we may have a new fur friend soon but more on that later!

Hearts are Floating for...Rainy Fall Days


Rainy fall days make me happy. They beg for warm cozy sweaters, rain boots and a hot latte. If I'm lucky enough to spend the day at home, they are perfect for a movie day snuggled on the couch with Billy, Daisy and Bella.

Hearts are Floating for...Artist Rebecca Rebouché


I've fallen in love with the work of artist, Rebecca Rebouch√©. Her paintings are whimsical and inspired by nature. I'm drawn to the soft colors and the use of trees, birds, flowers and other little animals. There's a childlike wonder about her work that makes me smile.

Hearts are Floating for...Pumpkin Butter


Oh, Maple Pumpkin Butter. You are delicious and a perfect complement to my morning whole grain english muffin. In fact, you're just perfect on your own...straight out of the jar. We're going to be good friends this fall.

Hearts are Floating for...Holiday Mart


This weekend I was introduced to a Kansas City tradition - Holiday Mart. I have my coworkers to thank for cluing me in to this shopping exhibition. It was just a short walk from home so I spent my day weaving in and out of endless booths. I didn't even mind the Christmas music. It inspired my purchases of a snuggly scarf, an assortment of handmade holiday candles, and a few ornaments (owls in Santa hats!).


Like one of those boring work conventions except with a bar and credit card machines ringing.


The only ornament with a name on it. 


Goodbye Holiday Mart! Until next year...
