Hello October happiness! This cake is making me smile today and the rest of the photos at Sprinkle Bakes are equally adorable. The month of October has been going by so fast this year that I'm happy to have some reminders of Halloween, pumpkins, and to think of all the little one's planning their costumes. I absolutely love the nostalgia that Halloween holds and this cake brings that all rushing back for me. I don't know that I'll have time to create something like this but maybe I'll whip up her cupcakes for a party we're going to at the end of the month. What are some of your favorite nostalgic Halloween memories?

Darlings, this cocktail has a few of my favorite things: apple cider, tequila, and a spiced sugar rim. Mac and I will be at a wedding this weekend but I hope we get the chance to whip one of these up next week because it sounds delicious. To top it off the photos made me feel like I was taking a mini break from my day. Apple happiness!

Darlings, this week I don't think I could survive without coffee and I know this mug would make my early mornings even better. Last week was busy followed by a weekend out of town and an even busier week this time. Now it's time to get ready for a wedding weekend out of town, a week working from Southern California, and another wedding weekend. October, here we go! Anyone ready for another cup of coffee?
P.S. Brighten your morning by naming your alarm "Good Morning Beautiful" always helps me out.

Anne of Green Gables has been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. This quote in particular is my happy place, it always sums up how I feel this time of year. To make it even better this gorgeous printable is free from Unexpected Elegance and if you want this quote with some pumpkins and color swing by Kayla Aimee Writes. Are you an Anne of Green Gables fan?

Happy Friday Darlings! Isn't this pumpkin caramel absolutely to die for? The recipe looks fantastic and almost makes me wish I was going to be at home this weekend so I could whip up a batch. Oh well, there's always next week. This weekend Mac and I are off to meet the family in Ventura, stay at our favorite B & B and enjoy cocktails here! What are your plans this cozy October weekend?

As if this cocktail didn't already sound amazing the picture is adorable as well. Kitchen Meets Girl has got me wishing it was the weekend already because this sounds brilliant. I had no idea that Kahlúa made a special edition pumpkin spice but I am so excited about it now! And those sprinkles, come on...too cute!

How cute and cozy is this scarf? I've had my eye on this for a while and may just have to add it to my wish list. I love the knit and neutral color, perfect with boots and plaid! Now I just need California to get good and cold so I can justify it. Do you have a favorite scarf this season?

Darlings, I don't know about you but lately I've come to realize that sometimes the small romantic moments are even sweeter than the grand gestures. Recently Mac surprised me with breakfast on the beach before work. We talked about going to the neighborhood cafe to get coffee and he surprised me with breakfast on a local beach, my favorite music, and some much needed quiet time before a busy week.
It's not to say that Mac and I never have fights or that we don't have busy week's where we barely see each other, but having that quiet time in the morning together made me so thankful to have him in my life.
P.S. Me with no make up, I've been trying it more lately and it feels wonderful!

Happy Friday Darlings! This week has been busy and wonderful. Thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes. I can't wait to keep the celebrations with family coming into town for an autumn pumpkin filled weekend including friends joining us tomorrow night for cake, cocktails, and our favorite spooky movies! Now if only I had time to make these pears. Don't they look fabulous?! What are you up to this weekend?

Darlings October is here which means it's also my birthday! Every birthday reminds me of how much I have to be grateful for. So much has changed over the last year. Mac and I finally got to move to the Central Coast, we're living in a house we love, I have a new job, and I have even more amazing people in my life. Looking back at my last birthday I never would have imagined all that has happened this year. Here's to the unexpected, the people that make life brighter, and taking on the last year of my twenties! Time for bubbles!

Darlings, Mac gets back into town this evening and I am so excited! I will say as much as I've missed Mac, the last couple nights have been cozy filled with chick flicks, good books, yoga pants, and pumpkin candles. Do you have a favorite autumn candle? For years I've been loving this Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin it just feels like home to me!
You can find my other favorite autumn candles here, here, and here. I'm also dying to get this one and this.
