this year halloween was celebrated for a week

it started last friday when Lily got dressed up to go to her halloween lock in at her gymnastics

then on saturday we had our neighborhood halloween party

and finally yesterday on the rainiest and coldest day of the season we finally went trick or treating on actual halloween

phew!

all fun but, dare i say that i am a little halloweened out???

happy friday and happy november friends

it is currently thirty degrees

temperatures have really dropped and will continue doing so for the weekend

and just like that the end of october and halloween are here

this saturday we have our neighborhood halloween party and it feels like it was talked about forever and now here it is

i know i have said this before but i really do feel like this time of year goes by way too fast

there just seems to be one thing after another and before i know it, it’s a whole new year

anyway, we had ourselves a pretty easy week keeping busy with our regular every day routine

William has actually been in nyc since wednesday morning so it’s been just Lilian and i

happy friday friends!

autumn is absolutely glorious this year. outside

and inside

a selfie

all the portuguese memories that sit on our kitchen window sill

and in my phone

our kitchen is by far the most used room in our home

weekends are for sleeping in

weekends are also for finding new delicious places to eat at

i painted eight faces

Katya was already sent to her new home in seattle washington

and Bella was sent to her new home in st. paul minnesota

ARTsy wednesday

well, i bought a pack of eight small canvases and i said i was going to paint a small collection of acrylic portraits and i did it!

i know it may not seem like a lot but as most of you must know yourselves, time is a luxury these days

i compromised my morning walk/run in order to paint but it was totally worth it!

it felt wonderful to paint every day and to be able to fill a canvas with something

i may buy another pack of eight canvases and keep going….

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!

around here

temperatures changed drastically this week

it was in the low forties in the mornings (and almost all day yesterday) and it’s in the thirties right now (it’s a little after six in the morning)

it’s like we went from summer straight to winter (let’s not talk about how it already snowed in west virginia)

but this crazy fast change in weather won’t stay

true autumn weather is in the forecast and i am looking forward to it

hope you guys are enjoying the change of season where you are

happy friday friends!

early morning walks and preferred architecture. clean, modern, brick free

Lily’s amazing elephant

all the green babies will soon need to come inside but i am putting it off as much as i can because this space will look sad and empty without them

looks and moods

this week we were all a little off trying to fight whatever little cold was trying to get us

we were all a little slower, a little achy and a little sniffly

but, we pushed on through and kept going with our regular routine

looking forward to the weekend so we can just take it easy and get some extra sleep

happy friday friends!

last friday’s happy hour with my favorite girl

our hibiscus keep on blooming and it always makes me so happy

obsessed with being a contortionist

we took Lily to the circus and not only did she dress the part but she found her second family

i took my things to the sunday market and sold a bunch of stuff

i also brought home a new pitcher (it was free)

orange season

panama city beach memories. so good!

miami dog who always finds the sunny spots

i started painting with acrylics this week. felt so freeing!

new stamp and blockprint by Lily. she’s slowly getting ready for the big crafty fair in december

ARTsy wednesday

wow! friends, the last artsy wednesday post was… well, june of this year but, the one before that was may of twenty eighteen!

do you remember long ago when they were a weekly thing?

anyway, it was rainy and gloomy yesterday so i decided to stay in pajamas and doodle a little

it had been a very very long time and it felt great once i got passed the nervous stage of trying to remember how to draw again

it always feels good to turn a blank piece of paper/canvas into something

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!
