Today I’m collaborating with some of my favorite bloggers for a Fall Blog Hop featuring tabletops and mantels. It’s been so much fun to see all of the creative fall décor around blogland these past few weeks. Welcome to my fall inspired dining room…
Honeycrips apples are my favorite apples on the planet. They have the perfect mix of sweet and tart tanginess. With apple season underway, I’m sharing my recipe for Fall Inspired Honeycrisp Apple Paninis. They’re easy to make and picky eater approved.
Somewhere around Labor Day weekend, I start feeling antsy for fall. I’m tired of the Florida heat, humidity and daily thunderstorms. I’m ready for pumpkin everything, a chill in the air, weekend outings to the pumpkin patch and little touches of a new season scattered around the house.
Does anyone else feel like Easter snuck up on them this year?

: I never thought the day I decided to take pictures of my spring inspired porch would be the same day it would turn cold again after a week of 80-degree weather. I also didn’t expect it to be raining for the third day in a row. Truth be told, I almost posted something other than my spring inspired porch. But there is something about the rain washing away the pollen and giving the earth a fresh drink that makes it feel like spring is here to stay no matter what the weather.

It’s in the seemingly ordinary mundane tasks we do everyday that creates the compilation of our memories. And since we have to do these things each day anyway, I want to take the time to enjoy those ordinary tasks as much as I can. It took about 10 minutes to set up. That’s all. 10 minutes to create a simple spring outdoor tablescape made from just another ordinary moment.
