Currently {Life in September}

Sharing a quick little update on all things {currently}…


Oh my goodness friends – how is it September already?!

S E P T E M B E R ! ! !

I just can’t even believe I’m saying that.

Back-to-school. Back to all the activities that come after it.

Back to a more predictable routine.

Back to sweater weather, scarf season and pumpkin spice EVERYTHING.

As much as I love Summer, I’m definitely feeling ready to let it all fall away for another year.


Fall is my very favourite season – honestly, I adore everything about it. It’s comforting + cozy and I’m just so ready to curl up with a warm tea, wrap myself in a big old knit blanket, light a lovely scented candle and soak it all in.


There’s also something so energizing about the fresh start September brings. It’s a second crack at a new year so to speak and after a loooooong break from all things renovation and blogging this Summer, I’m feeling all kinds of inspired to tackle all the things and share every one of them with y’all along the way.


And so, before I pull out that paintbrush and get back to finishing up this year long renovation, here’s a quick update about where I am {currently}…


Reading: Just getting into Little Fires Everywhere and so far, it’s totally living up to all the hype.

Writing: Some renovation updates for y’all – finally!

Watching: I’m always a bit ashamed to admit this, but my biggest guilty pleasure is plopping down on the couch for an hour of Big Brother. It’s admittedly not such a great use of my time (particularly that limited time to myself), but it gets me each and every season.

Needing: To fill our home with all things cozy as Fall rolls in (here are some ideas from years passed).


Creating: A video tour of our whole home – unfinished renovation projects and all (including spaces I’ve never shared before!). Watch for it next week.

Learning: How to preserve all those delicious garden goodies.

Planning: About a zillion cozy projects to share this Fall + Winter!

Loving: I could flip through this beautiful book all day long!

Wearing: I’ve been living in this soft + cozy cardigan.

Coveting: This beautiful machine has made it’s way to the top of my wish list!

Working for me right now: The predictable routines that come with back-to-school.


What’s not: Trying to get our kitchen finished. Yes, STILL. #becausecontractors #thisiswhyweDIY

Anticipating: The return of pumpkin spice EVERYTHING!

I’d LOVE to hear where are you currently? Are you excited to see Fall roll in?

Wishing you SUCH a lovely week!
