Fall on the Farm

img_10441044

It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted a blog entry!  I thought that once Summer was over, our lives would slow down, but I was definitely mistaken!  Life has been crazy between chasing a very active toddler, projects at work ramping up, all of the Fall and Holiday time activities, as well as picking up some new photography clients!  It’s hard to believe it’s November already!  This year is flying by so quickly, so this weekend, Aaron and I both cleared our calendars and spent some much-needed family time just relaxing and enjoying time outdoors.  Aaron’s grandmother and uncle both have farms just North of us.  He has many fond memories of visiting the farm growing up, and it’s a real thrill for him to be able to share such a special place with Nola.  The scenery out there is just breathtaking – I know I’ll be back many times to take advantage of this gorgeous Fall weather and stunning light in those picturesque settings!

It feels like forever since I’ve posted on here!  Things have been just crazy lately at our house – chasing after a now very-active toddler, projects at work and it seems like our weekends are always packed!  The weather has been absolutely gorgeous, and it’s had me pulling out some of my favorite Fall pieces!  I am usually cold, especially at work, so I love this time of year when I can wear long sleeves all day and be comfortable inside and outside!

In honor of Nola’s birthday, we had family photos taken by my long-time friend and extremely talented photographer, Leah Fry of Sentimental Soul Photography.  I’ve raved before about Leah’s skills in capturing our family, and these photos are nothing short of breathtaking.  No words I could write could do them justice, so I will let the photos speak for themselves.  We are so thankful to Leah for these sweet pictures of our tiny toddler!

Fall on my Mind

Dress: Anthropologie

Now that we’re into the second week of August, it’s time to start thinking of all the end-of-Summer activities:the Iowa State Fair, the start of the school year, a certain baby girl’s 1st birthday, and of course, cooler Fall temps, rich colors and glorious fashion!  Fall is my favorite time of year, and that includes all the cozy Fall styles!

Happy Friday!

Fridays are casual days at the office, but I still like to dress up my jeans a bit with a chic top.  I love the color and the feminine flutter sleeves on this gorgeous silk top from Mint L.A. Boutique.  I’ve talked before about my deep, deep love of Mint L.A. and this top is just one example of why I love them so much!
