Our family is diving headfirst into the mostly exciting, slightly scary world of fostering! We’re working through One Tail at a Time (a non-profit pet rescue near and dear to our hearts), and we’ve been given a literal gift by welcoming Catfish into our home. She’s been nothing short of a dreamboat, barely making a peep and constantly offers up kisses, a pink belly and wet-nosed boops.
So many of you have already noticed: She fits so perfectly into your family! My inbox is filling up with the question: Will you adopt her? And while the thought of parting with Catfish already makes my stomach flip, we’re just… not quite there yet. I’m not quite there yet? I think Lucy and Scott would sign the adoption papers yesterday, but I also think we’re all still grieving the loss of Jack and CC. We have missed the love of a dog. Our home has felt too big, too empty for most of this year, and fostering feels like a safe place for us, for now.
We foster to save lives, to be a part of one pup’s journey to their forever home, to give back through volunteer work, to promote pet rescue, to honor Jack and CC. I fully expect us to foster fail – maybe the next dog, or the one after that, or the one after that – but I think we’ll all know in our hearts once that time comes.
Here’s more information on how to adopt a pet through One Tail at a Time. You’ll see Catfish up for adoption soon!
My newest obsession? Banker’s lamps! I shared this one that we recently picked up for a makeover we’re working on, and it sold out instantly. This one is equally as cute, and this one comes in a few colors!
Jenni’s eggplant bathroom is the stuff dreams are made of. Wow!
Is ‘quick kimchi’ an oxymoron? I’d like to give this recipe a try!
I received a sample of this vitamin C serum, and – uh oh – I’m hooked. It’s fragrance-free, goes on like a primer (with the most matte finish!), and it has a satisfying tingle. This is a great product review, if you’re interested.
I’m still catching up on all of the One Room Challenge reveals, but I am taking all the notes on David and Stephen’s bedroom (and closet and bathroom, oh my!). The wall treatment. The Roman shades. The wallpaper and vanity!
To estimate your dog’s age in human years, multiply the dog’s age by seven, right? Wrong.

Hannah @hamb.home is renovating her 110-year-old four square and somehow makes it seem effortless. (I’m not fooled, Hannah, but you do it with style!) Her style is both moody yet bright, structured yet cozy, #goals yet attainable. Oh, and she Sharpied this wall like it was no big deal, but guys, it is a very big deal. Amazing.

Happy weekend to you!
Our plans include long family walks with Catfish, a picnic in the park and framing a few new prints for the home. (I’m also hoping for a front porch swing nap, my favorite Saturday tradition!) What are you up to?
