my mom and i hosted a little brunch and shopping party for my sister-in-law on saturday and that was pretty much that. the house was bright and open and smelling like coffee cake plus ben took elinor for a fun little papa-daughter morning so there were no toys on the floor! which can only mean one thing...capture that moment on film. voila.
it was such a nice day. time with some lovely ladies buying fabulous bags and such. plus, brunch food which is just hands down the bestest. brunch is my excuse to eat bagels and pastries and drink a mimosa. you gotta. it's brunch.
after the party wrapped up, we spent the afternoon just relaxing and playing. we went on a late-in-the-day grocery run to stock up for the week and then just let the day fade away into evening. it felt so nice.
and by the way, ninety degrees aside, everything has been feeling so autumnal. the light is shifting and fall is in the air. i love it. fall is just my favorite. and it is going to be a full and fun one, i can feel it.
