Good morning and Happy Monday. I hope you enjoyed your weekend and soaked up that extra hour of sleep on Sunday morning! When Daylight Savings time ends is when the Holidays really start to feel like they are just around the corner… nothing says Happy Thanksgiving like a 5:30 in the afternoon sunset!

Here is a tiny peek at what I was up to this weekend….

Photo 1: In Florida when the temperature drops below 70 everyone breaks out the their “winter wear”! I am talking bomber jackets, mittens, Uggs, you name it. I would love to tell you that I am not one of those people… but here is proof that I am. Yes, it was 65ish outside, and yes I was happily bundled up in a grandma sweater, tall boots, and a scarf.

Photo 2. I recently won a giveaway on one of my favorite photographer’s blog. She gave away the new Design*Sponge book, and I won! I don’t normally win things so you can imagine my excitement when this pretty book was in my mailbox this weekend! I spent an hour our so flipping through the pages, and I love it! And bonus, it also looks pretty with my other coffee table/design books! I would definitely recommend… it is jammed packed with inspiration!

Photo 3. On Sunday morning I woke up (of course!) an hour early for church so I headed out for a run. The weather was perfection and tons of people were out and about, apparently most people are like me and their internal clock woke them up too! I snapped this photo mid run… isn’t that view pretty! If that isn’t running encouragement, I don’t know what is!

We have another busy week in the studio, so stay tuned! B-I-G specials coming your way starting on Thursday! Also, as we mentioned last week, the ABD blog is opening up a pretty little ad space this winter (look to the right–>)! If you are interested please e-mail Betsy at and she will send you all the sparkling details!

P.S. Don’t forget to download your Free November Wallpaper… it’s adorable!

Cheers to a wonderful and productive week! xoxo- AB
