September 2017 Spotify Playlist

Summer is winding down and we've been experiencing milder temperatures as Fall makes its way to the South. Gone are the 100ยฐ+ days and fingers crossed that the wind and mid-80s temps become the new normal. I can hardly believe it's September already. In fact, I'm pretty sure I originally named this playlist "August 2017" on Spotify. Time has really slipped away from me lately.

Solar Eclipse 2017

We had an eclipse watching party at work that started with lunch (chicken salad sandwiches, salad, pasta salad, potato salad, and broccoli salad... can you tell we like "salads" in the South?!) and ended with everyone outside on the top balcony watching as the sky darkened, street lights turned on, temperatures dropped, and the moon quickly covered the sun. We live in a town where we were able to see the eclipse at about 99.5% so not while it was disappointing we weren't quite in the path of totality, it was still a really neat experience.

Keeping Organized as an Adult

August is the month when the kids head back to school, teachers get back to work, and college students get ready to spend countless hours in the library again. Even though I've been out of school for almost six years, it doesn't mean that I get any less excited about the end of summer.  It's a great time to check in on your New Year's resolution, one-word resolutions and establish mid-year goals like getting organized. It's also a great time of year to pick up a new planner!

DIY Instagram Wall with Printiki

I honestly cannot remember the last time I've had photos printed! We don't have a ton of photos hanging in our home, especially not of ourselves, which is why I was so excited when Printiki reached out to me about ordering some of their "M" prints. I chose the M prints in matte for this project but Printiki has a lot of other really neat products like photo books and posters.

House Plant Club

I mentioned in my last post that we picked up a few plants and pots at Bedford Greenhouses on our first trip a couple of weekends ago. Well, we are now official members of the house plant club! Since our initial trip, I've added a few more to the collection. I have a lot to learn about house plants so I've been researching the best ways to care for indoor plants on Pinterest. We've been guilty of overwatering them in the past so I'm going to be a bit more careful until we find a rhythm that works.
