I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who found it hard to focus this week with the election on tuesday, but I feel like I’ve finally been able to shift back to a bit of normality now that the madness has subsided. Of course, ‘normality’ in November is still a bit crazy, no? The holidays are creeping up on us and I have some major photo shoots to plan. The calendar is already getting filled with party invites, and I’ve started contemplating possiblites for New Years Eve. It seems as though we can never quite live in the moment these days, can we?

While I’m definitely that girl who has already begin listening to Christmas music (I know, I know), there’s a part of me who wants to pull back a bit and really enjoy this last bit of fall before diving into winter. I think I’ll take some time this weekend to get out of my house and enjoy the crisp sunny fall we’re having!

And I will definitely be spending a day inside finishing up some cozying so that I can shoot a few fun projects in the house next week. As much as I love having an office out of the house now, it sure is nice to be able to work from home a bit too on the weekend!

Wishing you all a chance to slow down and push the reset button this week before we all get into the holiday season.

    Oh yes Cassandra, this is one of the most beautiful falls we’ve ever had. I love all the colors and textures and the ‘raining’ leaves. Do enjoy the end of this fabulous season! Christmas is fast approaching. Happy Weekend to you.

    Autumn is my favorite season and I think it’s especially beautiful here because we’re bursting with color. (Although to be honest, I think Seattle is beautiful year-round!) I just updated my Christmas playlist this week, so I’m definitely in the same boat as you. 🙂

    Just stumbled across your blog and am here to stay, I love it! I totally get you on the Christmas songs, I’m getting completely carried away and have had to promise myself no more until 1st December! PS lovely picture of Emma Watson – she’s got so much style!

    I too am a fan of Christmas music. Would love a post of your favorites. My playlists needs some updating. I like to add a few to it each year. Great blog!
