in the tradition of year's past, i thought i would share some wish lists with you as we approach the holiday season. i love finding the perfect gift for someone & so in case you're shopping for a friend, or husband, or a little one in your life, i'll round up some of the things making the list at our house!
garden & gun -- this is probably my favorite magazine these days. i joke that i'm a converted southerner (with proud midwestern roots!) after spending most of my adult life in virginia and falling in love with things like pimento cheese & tomato sandwiches. this magazine feeds my soul -- it inspires me to travel and cook and appreciate a story well told.
emily mcdowell's mugs are getting a lot of buzz and with good reason -- they're hilarious!
one of the simple joys in my life is getting a little more time to take care of myself -- this hair mask is my new favorite thing.
just love the simple, bright design of these napkins!
i'm not shy about christmas music, so i've been listening to this album nonstop since it came out!
one of my top five things in my closet this year was the ryan tank from everlane -- it took me all the way through this summer of pregnancy, is really well made, unbelievably comfortable and goes with everything.
one of the ways i'm trying to slow down is to use my microwave a little less. it's not some big deal, i just realize there's nothing calming about pushing buttons and the frantic beeping when it's done. this is going to be a regular star in our kitchen -- for heating up a bit of soup or risotto or something for baking.
a gift certificate to artifact uprising -- i absolutely loved making our family album last year and am excited to spend some time in january with a newborn nestled next to me as i do this year's album. their products are so well made and the design tools are really great!
finally, i say own the whole mom thing -- this shirt made me laugh because it captures so many of days!
up next, a list for babies, little ones and the men in your life! you can see lots more ideas on past lists right here!
