Hello, friends! It’s been a few days, as I found myself needing to step back from social media this past week with everything going on. (If you’re feeling anxious and overwhelmed today, you are definitely not alone. Taking a break from the internet has been so helpful for me, highly recommend!) It’s been a heavy and hard week for everyone, hasn’t it?
I thought I’d pop on today to share a something fun, lighthearted and pretty with you… not in an effort to pretend like everything is fine and dandy, but rather to hopefully give you a break from the heaviness instead.
I’ve found this roundup of the cutest new arrivals to hit the web is best enjoyed with some Christmas music on in the background (unless you like to wait until after Thanksgiving, of course!) and a cup of hot coffee. Enjoy!

This week, I noticed that retailers are really starting to put on the holiday razzle-dazzle. I know everyone likes to start celebrating at different times (Andrew doesn’t want to see a decorated tree until after Thanksgiving ;) but I personally have enjoyed the distraction of Christmas and all of the fun that comes with it. Speaking of, isn’t this Christmas light headband too cute?
It’s been a heavy couple of weeks for me personally, from the loss of my grandmother to all that is unfolding right now, but I’m really, really looking forward to this weekend to reset, organize our house (our new countertops are making me so happy and I can’t wait to share more soon!), and work on some fun content for the coming weeks.
Honesty hour: I’m trying hard to finally let go of the mental “I need to get everything back to normal” narrative I’ve been telling myself lately. The truth is, so much of this year (perhaps the majority of it?) has been anything but normal, yet I still feel pressure to be carrying on as if nothing has changed.
If you find yourself in the same boat, I’m giving you a big hug. Let’s focus on the many, many things we have to be grateful for, and do our best to take each day one at a time. While it sounds so cliche, I think it’s more important now than ever!
Wishing you a restful, peace-filled weekend! I know we could all use it.
Love from the Sunshine State,
