pretty, happy, funny, real {with an update!}

Happy Thursday! So glad you're here. It's been too long since I've done a {p, h, f, r} post. Delighted to be linking up with Rosie & many more over at Like Mother, Like Daughter.

{pretty & happy}
Have you seen the posts that are a part of Bonnie's awesome Autumn in My Home blog hop? The blog posts are so much fun, and so very lovely. Sharing the beauty of homemaking is such a wonderful idea, so I hope it's okay if I give you a little peek into what autumn in my humble home looks like:
This kind of seasonal decorating brings me so much joy!

Yesterday I reached an exciting pregnancy milestone, friends: On my commute home from work someone offered me their seat on the subway train. (For those of you who may be new around here, it might be helpful to know that I live in New York City.) His kindness was much appreciated, I must say! I guess I must be starting to show a little more obviously these days. Of course, the person who offered me his seat was an elderly gentleman with a cane! I wouldn't take his seat, since he appeared to need it more than me, but when the young woman next to him noticed what was going on, she offered me her seat, which prompted the gentleman next to her to stand up and offer his seat as well. As the train announcement says, "Courtesy is contagious, and it begins with you!" :)

And now for the update: A week ago today, I posted about our birthday gift for our first child, Thomas Gianna, who is now in heaven. Here's a little graphic to show how things are progressing:

  1. Uh you have gorgeous autumn decor!!! And that subway story made me smile. :)

  2. Oh you are so lucky! I was talking to my husband about how people rarely seem to be polite to pregnant ladies anymore. Someone literally cut in line in front of me at the pharmacy and I am 9 months pregnant! I thought my feet were going to pop and I was so shocked all I could do was stare at the open mouthed when they turned around and gave a shrug and a sorry. The woman behind me in line even gasped, lol.


I would love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to leave a note.
