Hearth and Hand Collection at Target

Yesterday marked the coming together of my favorite store with one of my favorite brands. Y’all, Joanna Gaines partnered with Target to launch the Hearth and Hand collection. It is an understatement to say that Target/Magnolia/Joanna Gaines fans everywhere are rejoicing. I have not yet made it out to see the products in person because we had a full schedule yesterday. So in the meantime, I’ve had a great time perusing the collection online and gathering my favorites!

My decorating style has shifted from rustic to a more polished, classic look over the past few years. Even so, I am swooning over the Hearth and Hand collection! Joanna Gaines has such a gift for bringing a feminine touch to hearty design elements. Her collection combines pastoral textiles with tough metals, rustic wood, creamy ceramic, and the perfect holiday hue of green. The products are perfect for stocking up on household basics and getting a head start on Christmas gifts! Click here or on any of the pictures below to shop the collection!

My Favorite Cozy At-Home Playlist

One of my October goals is to read the Lifegiving Home by Sally Clarkson. While I have not yet begun the book, the premise has me thinking about ways to bring life into our space. Instead of coming home and sitting on the couch or simply starting dinner, I often light a candle and play music first. After sunset, we almost always have our twinkle lights on in both living room windows and it makes everything feel cozier.

Dillon could be totally content being a homebody during the week. I prefer to be on the go, even if it’s simply a trip to Target. But we balance each other out! More than once, we have stopped to slow dance in our kitchen while dinner warms on the stove or lingered at the dinner table a little bit longer. Simple moments like this are the sweetest and help to slow down a busy week and enjoy the comfort of our home.

In intentionally adding joy and liveliness to our space, I found this playlist by my friend Nancy. It’s sweet and cozy and worshipful, the perfect recipe to be the soundtrack to our evenings. Enjoy!

Our Little In-Home Crackling Campfire

Happy Wednesday, friends! This week has been absolutely one for the books – and it’s only Wednesday. It’s the busiest week of the year at my job with heaps of multitasking, something I am not particularly fond of. To help clear my mind after the long days, I’ve been using evenings to refresh my spirit.

One of my favorite ways to do this has been through a new Nature’s Wick candle I purchased last week. It was on clearance at Target and has the most-perfect early Fall scent. Read More
