The rapper Ludacris rapping the kids' book "Llama Llama Red Pajama" is so funny and actually sounds good! I bet he's a fun dad!

Abby and I are so envious of The Bucket List Family. What an adorable family traveling together all over the world, OUR DREAM!

Another thing to add to my bucket list! This is my dream! Could you imagine? And speaking of sheep... How cute is this?

A truly inspiring story of Jake Olson, a blind long snapper for the USC football team and his first moments stepping onto the field during a live game

Austin loves when I wear my hair in a curly ponytail and I love it too and often wear it with a ribbon. This picture makes me wish I had worn one on our wedding day! I remember thinking about it and deciding for a more traditional down and curly. 

Seeing that it's my birthday month, yikes the BIG 3-0, Abby has already given me an awesome early present. I can't wait to get this record player fired up ASAP. Any record suggestions? I'm thinking Sam Cooke, Etta James, Frank Sinatra, and maybe some Temptations

I've gotten so many friends and family members into the wise words of Brene Brown! Her books should be required reading for every single person. Society would be better for it. Anyway, she just released her latest book "Braving The Wilderness" this week and I've already picked it up. I also found this article she wrote for Fast Company about how her research on shame and loneliness is illustrated in our current political climate. "Daring Greatly" and "Rising Strong" has changed both Austin's and my life for the better. 

I stumbled upon this book today by Anu Partanen. It's called The Nordic Theory of Everything: In Search of a Better Life. In it she draws comparisons and contrasts to everyday life and values in both America and the Nordic countries. I'm certainly curious to find out more and dig into the secret to how and why they always win "happiest country!"

Austin and I went to see the movie Home Again with some friends and we loved it! Such a cute, happy, feel-good film- with impeccable interior design (like every other Nancy Meyers movie i.e. The Holiday, Somethings Got To Give, It's Complicated, The Intern, The Parent Trap, etc.) This Glamour Magazine article written by Reese Witherspoon who stars in the movie is a must-read! She really has come into her own the last few years as a Producer and Actress and lead production on so many incredible films and TV shows like Wild, Gone Girl, and Big Little Lies. And juggling her family and clothing and lifestyle brand Draper James on top of that! She's the ultimate #girlboss and so inspiring to me. #ProducerGoals #LifeGoals

It's Fall people and that means many things to many people, but I think we can all agree it's Apple Cider Donut season! I'm making these pronto, double batch!!!
