Hello, October! For whatever reason, the start of October has always really felt like the real start of fall to me. And feel it I will, because on Thursday the temperatures finally took a plunge … to the high-50s to be exact (and this Miami girl is freezing.) Like a brand new southern girl, I bought pumpkins for decorating and plenty of ingredients for soups and casseroles. I’m planning on nesting straight through fall and winter. Visitors welcome! As for the weekend, though we had a local bluegrass music festival and craft fair on the to do list, odds are, this hurricane is making it a lazy pancake-eating, Netflix-watching, catching-up kind of weekend. Either way, I’ll be sharing fun snaps on instagram, facebook, and twitter (@glitterinclexi) throughout the weekend. Follow along!
With that, a few little love notes …
Dear blog news, Blake Lively is shuttering her lifestyle site, Preserve; are you surprised?
