Hey there weekend

// white on white style, friends & family furniture, the cutest bob dylan costume, and baked eggs with polenta
Will you take away my writer card if I say something like, “Can you believe it’s already October?”

Because really though. October 1st hit hard — as if on cue, the winds changed, the air cooled, and my brain started killing for all things pumpkin and spice. And I know you’re all feeling the same, because I think someone might cut us if we don’t bring our sweet potato apple pie to the market this weekend.

… now, if you’ll excuse me I have a whole lot of Gilmore Girls to watch and a whole lot of pumpkin ale to drink.

Have a beautiful weekend!

… and be sure to check out Jen and Horace’s gorgeous film shots of our Baltimore dinner, up on Jen’s blog today!

Catching up

// a thousand threads
Well hey there! I feel like we’ve hardly had time to catch up. I was so excited to tell you all about our trip that I’ve barely covered anything we’ve been up to since…

Next week I have some super exciting things coming your way, including pictures from our second Field + Foundry event in Baltimore — which we’ve been totally and completely insanely busy with these past two weeks, and I couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out. I’m actually dying over here waiting to share all of the details, especially Reema’s gorgeous shots.

First, though, we have a pretty exciting giveaway coming up on Monday, so you’ll definitely want to check back.

… and in the mean time, it’s possible I might decide to tease a few of those gorgeous shots on Instagram, so stay tuned!

And tell me, are you loving that fall is here? It’s my favorite east coast season by far. Any big plans for the weekend? Catch me up!

We’re settled in all cozy at the airport, and in no time at all we’ll be on our way to Dublin!

I’ll be back here and there with updates, but for the most part I’ve lined up some truly amazing guest posts that I can’t wait to share. So keep checking back in, and of course be sure to follow along on Instagram for pics from the road (and to follow along with #30daystobalance)!

Have an amazing weekend and I’ll see you all soon!

One more week

This time next week, we’ll be in Dublin. Meaning two things: 1 // I’m basically useless at this point and 2 // my to-do list is longer than ever.

Thank goodness for weekends and the time to catch up!

Thank you Friday, thank you all

// a thousand threads
Thank you so much for all of your support on my last post. Mark and I are truly lucky to have the support that we do, both at home and online.

In the end I really do know this is going to work out, and I hope it’s even for the best. But I want you all to know just how grateful we are that you’re there.

Thank you, always, but now more than ever. I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

P.S. I have been looooving your travel recommendations, so many great new discoveries!! Do you use WorldMate? I’m kind of in love.

P.P.S. Did you see our event on Trouvé? I’m so excited to see so many wonderful recaps of Field + Foundry. Don’t miss Christine’s and Sydney’s, in addition to those I shared before.

And check out our sourdough starter on West Elm!

Life and other wonderment

// a gorgeous attic renovation, a sale at steven alan, an easy diy towel rack, and a raspberry apricot galette
Yesterday we watched our little grown-up play the drums like a boss with a legit little band, better than I ever would have imagined he could. On the drive home he was quiet, and when we walked through the door he ran straight up to his room without saying a word, like suddenly we had a teenager in the house.

Then just as I was marveling at how old he’s gotten and starting to sink down into sadness, feeling like our little guy was gone, a little scream rang out from behind that closed door – a scream I can only imagine was connected to the most elaborately-imagined battle being waged in some far off land – and my heart relaxed. We still have some time.

Hope you’re all having an amazing start to your weekend! We’re happy to be home, and to be together… enjoying the little moments we have.

Vacation Friday

a beautiful dinner party, a sale at need supply, diy drink stirrers, and mini chocolate coconut pops // a thousand threads
Things currently making me happy…

1 // The success of our first Field + Foundry event, which I can’t wait to share soon. (Did you see Carlene’s and Morgan’s recaps?)

2 // The fact that my auto-responder is officially set and I am officially off the grid (okay well, sort of) for four days in Newport… a beautiful place only made better by the annual addition of all things folk.

3 // Your sweet, candid, amazing help on our survey. Thank you beyond thanks for being here and supporting what we do here on this little blog. I really can’t tell you how much it means.

4 // And last but most certainly not least… Weird Al’s #1 album. I don’t readily admit it, but Mr. Yankovic’s was the first concert I ever attended at the ripe old age of something like 12.

I usually say it was Bush, because they came next and because Gavin Rossdale… but if you count it, and the casino it was in, it was totally Al. So this one takes me back to say the least.

Have an amazing weekend of fun you guys! (Mandatory fun… get it? Okay I’ll stop.)

It’s so nice to have a few days off that we’re planning to make the most of every second.


Eye this beautiful dinner party from Bustle Events and Apartment 34.

I don’t care if Monday’s blue

// a thousand threads
It’s Friday! And even though I’m still a little behind and have a long list of things to do, I’m so ready to welcome the weekend.

On Sunday it’s back to the market for us, and finally, everything is starting to ripen from the long cold winter… sour cherries, blueberries, currants, gooseberries, really what more could a girl want? We’re talking cherry pie!

Okay maybe a day by the pool, I’ll try to work on that too.

Happy weekend! Any plans?

Counting down

// a thousand threads
This whole, Alt-is-going-to-be-here-before-we-know-it-like-in-just-over-a-week, thing is beginning to set in, and I’m equal parts excited and terrified. So this weekend I’ll be working furiously to make sure I have everything in order before the week is done.

I’ll be putting the finishing touches on my talk about “getting your editorial calendar under control,” tying up loose ends around the house and at work/for the business, and combing through my closet for the perfect combination of clothes that can be carried in just one small(ish) bag.

Oh, and I’ll also be counting down the very last few sad, beautiful days of my 20s. Did I fail to mention that before?


Of course I’ll also be carving out at least a little bit of time to enjoy this gorgeous weather. (Changing the subject is always appreciated when it comes to the imminent approach of my old ladydom.)

Happy Friday! Do you have any plans?


Eye this Portugal workshop by Local Milk & Little Upside Down Cake.

Buy all of this outfit… maybe buy it for me.

Make this rosé hibiscus spritzer.

An oldie but such a goodie, whether you’re going to Alt or to any other big event.

For the mom who makes.

Darn those lady hurricanes and their “blustery” ways.
