Ugh. It’s that time of year again. It’s mid-August, 90 degrees outside, we are at the beach, and it’s time for me to welcome fall.
Let me try that again. Welcome fall! Ok, I have to be honest that I have been fighting this all week. It can’t be fall because it is still summer, right?
Season 2 Volume 30
Today I am pleased to share with you Sunday Morning Coffee. This is a place to share, learn, explain, dream, and have fun.
My new book, A Home to Share, is available for Pre-order now! Click here for more details!
I have to admit that this topic of “Welcome Fall” has been giving me a stomach ache all week. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall. I really do. But I am not ready to let go of summer!
And it’s been in the 90s all week here too. And it will be the same next week too.
But then I pulled out a few fall items and some gorgeous fall florals and realized … wait. I love fall and I am ready. And willing. And happy to make the transition.
So welcome fall!
There is also one really good thing about fall this year. Any idea what that is?
My book, A Home to Share, will be in your hands on September 27th! I have been waiting for this for two years. And I am really looking forward to Fall when my book arrives.
Did you know we are hosting a big celebration at our home on September 27th? And you are all invited. Tickets are almost sold out so reserve your spot here!
We were at Hermosa beach this past weekend with a group of friends. Our group has been getting together on and off for so many years, and it’s incredible to have a group of friends like this. We have been through life’s highs and lows together and now that all of our children are grown, we have augmented fun getaways in addition to lots of dinners.
Are you a part of a friend’s dinner group? It is a really fun way of insuring that you get together with a special group of friends. While our group has evolved over the years, what has remained consistent is the friendships that I absolutely treasure.

My Favorite Room This Week
The beach house is starting to become very real. Even though the walls are light purple (in case you missed it, see the light purple wall post here), there are walls and I can walk through the space, really feeling how we will live in this home.
As I walk through the main living space, I can visualize cooking together in the kitchen and having meals around the dining table. I giggle to myself as I picture my husband and sons standing at the now much larger picture window assessing the waves for a surf session. As I walk up the stairs to the rooftop deck, I can picture my family and friends gathering together to watch the sunset together before we grill an amazing dinner. I have an idea of how each of the downstairs bedrooms will be claimed by my children, but I am interested to see the system that they employ for the process. They always amaze me with their creativity and competitiveness! I can almost guarantee there will be a bid made for the primary bedroom!
At the moment, my favorite room is our primary suite. I feel like I will spend a LOT of time in this room. I look forward to opening my eyes in the morning with a view of the sunrise amidst the waves. Our bedroom has large windows which wrap around the corner of the room offering an extraordinary view of the beach. I am planning to add a sitting area near the windows as well as a small desk. It might be a bit hard to work and not get distracted by the view.
I picked out tile this week for the house including for our primary bath. There is something so luxurious about a cool shower on sunkissed skin after a day spent on the beach.
It’s all coming together and I am excited about the color palette. The goal is for the house to feel calming and comfortable, but also a little bit elegant. In a beachy way.
And don’t worry, the color palette does not include purple!
