    Jenna, your blog and feed are both so inspiring to me. I love to read your words and see your delicious adventures unfold! It occurred to me yesterday that along with Facebook, Pinterest and NY Mag, your blog is my fourth most visited page! It has become such a wonderful habit.

    Thanks for the inspiration, photographs, stories and recipes 🙂

    Beautiful photos! I am majorly jealous of that plate of Mexican food. YUM! Just can’t get that on the other side of the Atlantic.

    What a lovely fall you’re having!! I have to confess that I have not yet visited a West Elm. I think there’s one about an hour from me and I’m going to make a point of going next time I’m in that area because I’ve heard wonderful things!

    Love your baby bump! Too cute! Thank you for sharing what a lovely fall you’ve had!

    Also, random question…when you travel, does Dexter get taken care of by a friend? The hubs and I are thinking of adopting a kitten but are nervous about traveling without him!

    Great photos! Can you share how you tied your scarf in the stitch fix photo? I’m always trying to get my scarves to look like that but I can’t figure it out! Thanks!

    Love your pictures! Question – how do you get your hair highlighted? All blonde highlights only? Highlights and lowlights? Or are you just lucky and it’s natural? 🙂

    WELL! Holy jumpins. This is going to sound so strange, but I lost your blog for a while. I think you used to have a domain elsewhere. Either that or I totally forgot the name of your blog – and I finally found you again through PBFingers!!!!!! I read your site like … a few years ago (2009-2010 ish). CRAZY. I am adding you to my feedly reader.

    Congrats on your pregnancy!!!!
