cfg update – after some thoughtful consideration, i am going to take a break from blogging. not because i haven’t loved this community or enjoyed this little happy place but because i need time to refresh. with an amazing job that can be extremely busy at times, i need some time to think about where i want to devote my attention and focus to. these past four years of sharing my everyday thoughts and feelings on cfg have been very rewarding. i may consider starting up again after the new year but am going to take some time off for now. thanks for all of your support!

love, lo

{outfit post} sweater weather.

by Lauren on December 8, 2014

this is one of my favorite winter outfits. in fact, i recently wore it to a K-State football game, which provided just enough warmth and a pop of purple. i love the layered look especially with a pattern underneath and chunky knit sweater on top. i will be wearing this all holiday season to casual events.

i don’t know about you all but the end of the year is always the busiest for me. whether its at work, home or holiday to-dos; I feel like this part of the year flys by. my husband and i had our first holiday party of the year this weekend, outfit details for what I wore to come.

seasonal tablescapes.

by Lauren on December 1, 2014

as you can probably tell from my instagram, i love decorating the house for the different seasons and holidays. you can be festive no matter the time of year, but this season is especially good for dressing up the house. the husband and i just put up our Christmas tree this weekend and decorated the house for the holidays, which inspired this post. i’ve put together a tablescape for every season since the kitchen table is such a big focal point for our house, it requires the best decorations. happy decorating!
