Happy Friday! This week has been chilly but extra sunny and beautiful, my favorite kind of fall weather. It makes me so so happy. The leaves in Connecticut are starting to turn, and everything is feeling quite festive with the change in season. I spent yesterday morning decorating my front steps with mums and pumpkins and I get unreasonably excited whenever I come home and see it all.

I've struggled with insomnia for my entire life, and despite all of the work I've put into battling it, I go through waves. I had to give a talk about my sleeping tips a few weeks ago, and I've recently put some new tricks into practice that have been helping a lot, so it's been top of mind lately.

I was naive and thought I had a great little eater and I was the best mom ever for guiding her on a healthy and delicious culinary journey in life...
As I'm sitting here writing this post (on Sunday night), I want to feel as bubbly as I felt when taking these photos last week. I want to write about how much I love this suede shirt (so much that I had planned to dedicate this entire post to it) and my new coated jeans from Tuckernuck (so chic, size down), but I'm going through a rough few days and thought I'd share an update on that instead.
