:: It's the little things::oct.28

This week we have had the most beautiful weather as well as some really gross stuff going on. Like darkness and rain and little ice pellets (why do I always forget my umbrella during times like these?). Linking up with Lindsey from Aisle to Aloha- recounting the little things that brought joy to our lives this week. Here are a couple of mine:

Before the icky weather set in, Karl and I took a little trip down the road to a park/farm/cool place. This "park" had a mini farm but also a greenhouse, a (large) garden, bee-keeping/hives, a horse, cow, donkey goats, sheep, geese, chickens, lamas, turkeys...(am I forgetting something? oh yes, pigs.) It's really cool because it's a public farm where you can go walk around during certain hours, but there's also a family who lives there and takes care of the animals/keeps a garden/bees/. You can even buy fresh eggs there. Which I think is pretty cool for being in the middle of a city. Oh yes, my camera died after 2 minutes worth of pictures. sorry 'bout that.

not sure why you would want to keep a llama on a farm....milk? wool? anyways, I love how all the animals graze together and get along: llamas, goats, sheep, horse, donkey.... :)

Trader Joes. so love going grocery shopping there. originally went there to get these apples.

ended up getting all this stuff too. i'm not very good with sticking to my grocery list.

I'm especially excited for this stuff: i know i could have made it myself, but it wouldn't have looked this cute.

went on a walk. love crunching leaves underfoot.

(on my walk) found these interesting flowers (?)

sold this headband in my etsy shop this week and shipped it off to croatia! (how fun)

{pretty} bottles {to look at}
  {pretty} smells {for when I've sauteed 100 onions and then must go out in public}
{pretty} hair oil {for everyday that my hair has a life of it's own. which is}

Happy friday everyone!


  1. I miss Trader Joes!! That's one thing I wish this island had like no other! And look at all of the Fall deliciousness you stocked up on! Yum. Yum. Yum.

  2. Trader Joe's will definitely suck you into buying a bunch of things not on the list! That pumpkin butter looks delicious! I also love llamas :) Thanks for including the picture of that cute little guy!

  3. Ooh, I've always wanted to try moroccan oil! I hear it does wonders. Llamas are awesome, haha.

  4. I am also a trader joe lover. Have you checked out the Whats good at Trader Joes website?

  5. Your neighborhood definitely looks like fall. Have a great weekend!

  6. oh how i love that headband! cute, cute!
    found ya from redhead memories... glad i did! :)
    GIVEAWAY at my place!

  7. Your packaging is adorable! I love the mix of patterns.

    Also, what a fun week- Delicious food, beautiful scenery, and a little extra money to boot!

  8. I would LOVE to have a Trader Joe's close by! The closest one to me is in Georgia. But, honestly, it might be a good thing there isn't one close. The $2 buck chuck wine would not work out well. :) Love the pretty fall colors and the farm!

  9. I would love ANY advice you have about Maryland. I tried to email you but I dont think your email is hooked up to your profile (unless of course I am doing it wrong which is highly likely). I am going to start following you!

  10. I just found Organix Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner and I LOVE THEM! They made it into my little things post yesterday too! Now I have a craving for pumpkin butter... :)

  11. wow, such a cute post, I've wondered the same thing about llamas, except for they look awesome. I found you on follower fest, and now I'm following you! My blog is if you wanna check it out.

  12. Pumpkin butter! Thanks for the suggestion, Jessica. Love your blog.

  13. found you through follow fest, great post! i just discovered pumpkin butter from TJs, so delicious :)
