Chelsea Lately


With all of the sponsored posts happening last week (it was a blast but I'm a little wiped out from producing so much content), I figured you guys might appreciate a more intentional catch-up for this space. So much has been going on recently and those of you who aren't following me on Instagram may not know that Mr. Jackon and I are finally engaged! After almost seven years (half of them spent referring to him as either my husband or fiance to prying old ladies or when it felt like "girlfriend" wasn't quite the right word), a beautiful and crazy (see above) little girl and a thousand little moments that convinced me he was the one, I couldn't be happier to take this step with this amazing man. This space won't be turning into a wedding blog (for sure) but I'd love to know if you're interested in occasionally following along this journey with us!

Aside from finding the accessory I've been in search of my whole life, I'm still hard at work homeschooling Lorelai, preparing to open a new studio space, knee-deep in an exciting project with my sweetest friends and reveling in my favorite time of the year. This quote seems more than appropriate lately...

Never apologize for burning too brightly or collapsing into yourself every night. That is how galaxies are made.

I hate to gush but I have never been in a happier place in this life!

feeling excited to be engaged to my best friend
liking every version of the blanket coat
making a registry at one of my favorites, Anthropologie
cooking whole foods for the next 30 days (eek!)
drinking water and pumpkin spice tea... lots of tea
reading Anthology Magazine
wanting to stare at my hand every 30 seconds
looking forward to Halloween
playing new records by BANKS & Alabama Shakes
wasting time on pinterest
wishing my sister was visiting sooner but so excited for her to attend friendsgiving this year
enjoying my new title... "fiance" is so much better than girlfriend
waiting to get Lo excited for the holidays

wondering if we can stick to the whole 30 challenge
hoping to fit in some more yoga this week
marveling at the outpouring of love from family & friends
needing nothing... I have everything I could ask for
smelling  pumpkin latte candles
wearing my comfiest new pants (see them here)
following so many inspirational instagrammers
noticing how fleeting my favorite season seems
knowing I'll soon be Mrs. Jackson
thinking of jotting all of our recipes down
bookmarking thoughtful & wordy blogs
opening the new studio with Sleepy Fox soon!
giggling at the mess that has completely taken over my house

p.s. I've been toying with the idea of daily/weekly vlogging (video-blogging). Let me know, is that something you'd be interested in watching?!
