HEY Y'ALL, sorry for the long absence. October's been a busy busy month. First, it was my birthday on the 14th and I turned thirty. I didn't have any big plans, just sushi with Johnny's family and my sisters. J did make me the most wonderful birthday present. I'll share it with you in another post soon.
Also, a couple of weeks ago, I went out to my alma mater and helped the new advisor for the lit mag out there with all the programs for submissions and putting together the website, and he asked me to read at the lit mag's release event. It's been a while since I've done a reading and it was a nice experience. I need more of it. I'm trying to get back into doing more things having to do with my chosen career. I think this was a nice kick-starter for that.
Then! Then, it was my sister Tess's baby shower. She's due in January, and I'm super excited for little Quinn to come around. She's the first granddaughter for my parents so they're really excited as well. (They moved back from Arizona finally!) Can't wait! You should check out Tess's baby blog, Dear Quinn. Anyway, my sister had a bee-themed shower, and I helped her with a lot of the decorations, like the flower photo booth backdrop, and the Q-U-I-N-N letters, the stamps for decorating the onesies, and the beehive cake. It was a ton of work and I've been preoccupied working at denM and helping with the holiday visuals at Anthropologie, but I just love DIY stuff so I don't mind. I'm also in the middle of helping J's sister Tiff with her baby shower in November.

I wore my new Everly dress from denM to the shower and I'm really in love with it. (I had to buy it after doing an Instagram post wearing it. If you want, you should follow denM's Instagram. Good stuff, there.) I think I've worn it about three times and I've only had it for two weeks. I feel like it's perfect for fall. It was really cold that day, too (even though the day before was scorching).
