There is nothing quite like a weekend where everything resets itself in a positive way. Thanksgiving weekend is notorious for an outpouring of gratitude, love and light. As it should be of course, but it also is turns out to be so much more. Sometimes, a long weekend designed for friends, family and reflection is a priceless remedy to the "real" world's weight we often feel trapped under. Spending dinner, moments, money (shopping with friends!) with others is the therapy we did not know we may need for ourselves and our relationships.

This year, Thanksgiving was that weekend, that unexpectedly re-centered  an anxious mind and heart. Putting it back on a path that beats for moving forward, acceptance of what is to be and what is to leave behind.  Focusing the mind on goals that cannot be reached overnight but will make an impact on the overall objective. To always choose love and happiness. To be brave, bold and truthful. That self-worth isn't taught, cannot be earned or bought, but  is worth fighting and standing up for. Recognizing dreams can come true and there's magic in our bones that we cannot allow self-doubt or people to darken and suppress. 

 "A feather is a ton of bricks
Or maybe I'm too sensitive...
I don't know.
All I can say is this,
From now on
I'll try to listen to intuition.

There's magic in our bones,
A north star in our soul
That remembers our way home.
There's magic in our bones."

Bell Sleeves

I scream, you scream, we all
scream for Bell Sleeves!

There's no denying that bell sleeves
is one of the season's biggest trends.
From sweaters, to jackets, to blouses,
they serve as great layering pieces,
or just as is. Right now we love 
playing around with different ways
to wear them and exploring different
silhouettes. Right now we dig
a nice bell sleeve blouse top with
a good pair of mom jeans. 

How are you wearing your
bell sleeves this season?

Fall in St. Louis

“But these are the days we dream about, 
when the sunlight paints us gold.”

For some, the changing of the trees is an indication 
of summer days long gone, and Jack Frost creeping
 up around the corner. But that short little transitional period
 in between, is one we love so much; Fall.

You really can’t beat fall in South St. Louis. There is just 
something so magical about the color of the trees
 mixed with the lines of brick houses, smoke billowing
 from the chimneys. And every so often you can hear the 
faint sounds of laughter from neighbors gathered 
around a bonfire in the backyard.

Our favorite spot to admire during this time is
 Francis Park. When we first moved in the city 7 
years back, this park captured our hearts in the fall. 
On of our favorite things to do is spend a sunny Saturday 
walking around the tree lined perimeter of the park with
 Frank Sinatra playing. Fall + Frank; Something about
 the mixture of the two just seems right.

We’ve been getting a little weepy at the half barren trees,
 knowing that at any moment, all the beauty will fall to the 
ground, and winter will be here. But for now, we are 
savoring all the moments we can until that day comes.

We truly feel lucky to live in this neighborhood,
 especially in the Fall.
