Happy Saturday. This week was a bit of a whirlwind and yesterday we finally got the sectional for our living room which means I can share that entire space soon. Can’t wait! A little painting left to do and then it will be ready for the reveal. Also putting the finished touches on our outdoor deck and patio area so I can share that next week.
Foliage season is in full swing here and I am having so much fun decorating our house with pumpkins and mums. Loving all the fall things. Wishing you all a great weekend.
