life lately

my mom, grandma and aunt just left town after the greatest visit..
i'm so sad but we had the best time! i don't have all the pictures yet, so to distract 
myself from missing them, i'm posting some updates of life lately.
girls trip pics to come!
 hello october...we're beginning to decorate!
i really LOVE our apartment building and have to snap pictures of
it once in a while as i walk in to capture it's charm!
we found a cute london phone booth on our date night last week and i had 
to take a picture since it made me dream of the city i used to live in!
these don't look pretty but we have a new obsession:
making our own white-chocolate covered pretzels! do it.

 i just finished such an inspiring book and loved this little snippet of it.
read it! {a million miles in a thousand years}
 we checked off one of our fall date nights {listed here} by going to the 
south bay flea market which is one of the world's biggest!
seriously look at this map...it is enormous! we biked 
there and spent hours & hours looking around.
 we finally tried the yummy pizza just down the street from us!
we always love trying new places and getting to know our neighborhood.
 the usual farmers market love..we picked up some zucchini & grapes this week.
love our new PB pasta bowl!
i am missing the fall colors in utah, but seeing
these palm trees every day makes up for it.


what does fall look like where you live?
do you ever go to farmers markets/ flea markets?


  1. i love farmers markets :) they are like a little piece of heaven!


    1. couldn't agree more! we are a little obsessed with them. can't wait to follow your blog!

  2. The book looks really interesting, what's the title? :)

    Also, the phone booth is really cute! Phone booths here in New Zealand all look boring and the same.
