the week in photos.

I can not yet grasp that september is practically over. [in 3 days]. things have been busy around here. apparently too busy to look at a calendar. but I like busy. I think it suits me. I’m a better under-pressure-kind-of-gal. I have also been so kind to extend a project list [J]’s way. which has since been almost completely checked off. [I’m excited to show off his latest handy work today].

but first ..

last weekend [J] & I went back to my hometown for a friend’s wedding. I’ve always loved weddings. but they’re so much more emotional + fun now that I’m planning my own.

plus it’s always so great seeing faces you’ve missed.

my subtle reminder. it’s fall.

now [J]’s handy work ..

our yellow + grey bedroom is a work-in-progress. better it’s nothing but a couple pins on pinterest. so I’ve been anxious to turn those ideas into reality.

starting with a big, bold, statement: our headboard.

[J] completely constructed from scratch. which makes it even better, in my book.

he hand covered the buttons I HAD to have.
