Holiday Gift Guide no.1

Target does it again. This time teaming with various designers from Neiman Marcus like Thom Browne, Alice + Olivia, and Tracy Reece. Just in time for Christmas shopping too :) All of these goodies will be in our very own Target beginning of December and I cannot wait. Who does not want a metallic Marc Jacobs pouch in their stocking? So fun! Happy Friday y'all!



Another season complete...

This weekend marked the end of our wedding season! Oofta. Stone and I drove to Santa Barbara for the final hoorah and it was the perfect wedding to wrap this season up with. Possibly one of my favorites we have shot this year....

Everything was just so classic from the black tuxedo's that the men wore to the woman singing Ave Maria as the bride walked down the aisle to the all white floral centerpieces, I just loved it. 

I cannot believe we made it through this season, I am still pinching myself. It seemed so daunting thinking back to October when we found out I was pregnant it was so overwhelming to think about how we would manage. Patience from our clients, a hardworking husband, and a baby who is flexible have all made it possible and I am so thankful. We love our job. We really do. At times it is super difficult to muster the energy every weekend for 12 hour work days, but the reward of getting to know these couples and be apart of such a special day is payback. Stone and I together have witnessed so many beginnings for couples... how great is that? I am just rambling at this point, but it feels good to have made it through and I cannot wait to see what next season brings. 




I think this year may top my favorite Halloween of my adult life. Adult meaning post-college ;)

Our little neighborhood is just a dream... for real! Sometimes I have to pinch myself because I cannot believe that we found such an incredible little community to raise our family in. For halloween, and all other holidays of the year, they do it big. Think planning committees, pot luck dinners, parades, etc. This works for us because we are all about celebrating and traditions in the Crandall fam and Halloween is no different. This year I decided to find something  easy from Knox's already too full closet to make into a costume so he went as a nerd, and while none of the kids in our neighborhood had any idea what a 'nerd' was, the adults all found it pretty funny! Cannot wait for all of the halloweens to come with this little guy...

Happy to have all of that candy out of my home! Hope your halloween was wonderful.


Tuesday tunes.

A few weeks ago Stone snagged us last minute concert tickets to see Ben Howard at a venue right by our house! If you have followed my blog for any amount of time I am sure you have seen the multiple videos and songs that I have posted of him, so, to get to see him live was such a treat. Later a friend sent us to a link that he and pro surfer Rob Machado had made a little promo video while he was in town and I thought I would share so that you can see glimpses of the concert (the venue was amazing, so intimate) and our little town. Enjoy! Happy Tuesday.


It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Okay, so I may be jumping the gun with this one... but, I have to say the mornings and nights here are pretty chilly, even if our forecast says that next week we are going to be back up in the 90s (lame). This is always my favorite season, I am a girl that loves holidays and traditions, so the span of time between end of October through December was made for me. Some tried and true things in the Crandall household this fall have been Trader Joe's always delicious pumpkin bread (like I have time to make anything homemade these days, but this gets the job done!). We have now burned through not one, not two, but three of the Pumpkin Souffle candles and I am totally addicted and our house smells awesome. Also, I pulled out my flannels from JCrew (I have the navy ones) already too and I just love them so. 

On my wish list this fall are these boots from Madewell... perfection in a boot. And, I am needing a few more throws for our home to cozy it up and thought that these looked like they fit the bill.

Brew yourself something warm (and maybe put it in a sweet mug like this one) and enjoy this season! xo
