1nimu-500x639Find more like this and see what I'm pinning right here...---A few things currently floating through my mind, filling my heart and on the horizon for this season...Starting to feel a bit more settled in our new space, but OH. SO. MANY. BOXES.Moving furniture around and wondering if Mr. Pepper will let me put something pretty & patterend on the ceiling of the bathroom.Reading a book about Bread & Wine and the stories are touching my heart like crazy.Working on filming a new series of episodes for S&P TV... Any request? Tweet me with the hashtag #askjessiepepper and I'll answer your questions in an upcoming video!Loving my current pair of sunnies SO much that they inspired last week's Pepper Letter - Have you read it yet?Wearing this quartz hinge cuff on repeat since it arrived last month... Not only is it my favorite new piece, but it reminds me of hiking with my grandpa when I was little - He loved teaching us how to look for rose quartz in the forest. :) Eating an abundance of abundance bowls... The one I shared last week was a happy accident that I'm looking forward to making again.  (Love it when that happens!)Looking for a few key pieces of furniture, and a set of wire dining chairs (like the ones above) are #1 on my shopping list.Making this Raw Chia Tart with the leftover bounty of fresh New Jersey cherries in our fridge. Anyone want to come over for dessert? ;)Feeling completely inspired by Justina's thoughts on her post-pregnancy body. What a heartfelt message...  LOVE that lady!Buying SO many weddings gifts lately... Majorly relying on this site to find clever gifts that any couple would love to put in their mouth! ;)Planning for Mr. Pepper's birthday trip to Vegas in a few weeks... He's turning 30 and our close friends and family are meeting us there to celebrate.  Any recommendations for things that we can't miss?Trying not to buy anything fashion-related until my closet is completely unpacked, but these spotted heels are just too cute. On a related note: Does anyone have a trick for making my boots stand straight up on a shelf?Watching WAY too many shows on HGTV... Home renovations are my guilty pleasure these days. Do you have a favorite house-flipping series?Wanting nothing more than to have wireless internet to be set up in our new place. Enough said.Noticing that the neighbors across the way can now see directly into our bedroom (which has no window coverings)... Might need to invest in this little pretty to avoid an accidental peep-show. Ha!Pick your favorite "ing" and play along in the comments, will you?Image found here.
