5 favorites of fall: small gatherings

hosting small parties, purposeful ones and for no good reason parties, is something i cherish. 
and it's definitely something i look forward to this time of year as the holidays roll around.

tonight matt and max and i are having a small gathering of friends and family over for soup and pumpkin carving...caramel apples and kettle corn and bluegrass records.
there is nothing better than making a fuss over the people you love the most!

happy happy weekend, friends!
tomorrow, matt and i are heading over to my sister amy's house for her and nate's annual halloween party. our costumes are pretty ridiculous this year! 
i'll have lots to share come sunday.

  18. I love your blog but this post is one of my favorites. Your photos are so gorgeous as well as your outlook on life, family and friends. The line: "there is nothing better than making a fuss over the people you love the most" has been with me since the moment I read it. I'm trying to keep that in mind these next few months to truly focus on what the holidays are all about.
