A Fall Marathon

Perform every act in life as if it were your last”

– Marcus Aurelius

Hello, sweet friend…how are you?

My husband Joe is humble about his running…so I am bragging for him!😉



Beautiful sunset as seen from the upstairs guest room

It’s late as I sit down to write today’s post …My very dear friends just left from a night of chatting…eating pizza…& playing cards…


Cami ready to go window shopping with me

Ironically when I returned to work on my post…I noticed an email from another friend who mentioned she was going to be in the area in the morning and wondered if she might stop by…


With Cami in tow…Pottery Barn


That being said I decided to just share some pretty eye candy with you from a little getaway I took last week...and then head on to bed…

checking out Nordstrom Rack


Trying on the softest coat ever…


Time for the dressing room

We took a mini getaway to Eugene where Joe prepared to run the Pacific Northwest Marathon which was being held in a small charming town called Coburg.

Cami loves to go shopping with her mom


Now to look at rugs…Cami picked out a new water bowl for her!


What do you think Cami?


Ok…we like this…


Perfect for fall…


Okey dokey Cami these three items are perfect!


Sporting one of my new tops from Nordstrom Rack

While Joe ran the marathon I ran around town…hitting a few shops looking for a rug…

Cami’s new bowl…

bed sheets…


Super cute display…


Window sniffing…


A great day for Cami…just like going to Disneyland…
An old truck filled with fall decor…



Pumpkins being unloaded


Pumpkin delights…


hoping to find a few items to for fall…


turns out…

Joe isn’t the only one that can run a marathon…


(Congrats Joe!)

Cheers to your weekend!
