Though it's now September - time for back to school supplies and fall decorations, we're hanging on to the last days of summer with all our might. We're not ready yet to give in to the new season while there's so much to love about the old one. Here's what we're eating, drinking, cooking, and reading right now.

Cristina’s Pick: Milk Bottle String Lights
In our neck of the woods, it’s already starting to get dark earlier. That means it’s time for my annual stringing of lights and I love these cute milk bottles. They’re fun and whimsical and light up my balcony. That means I can extend outdoor happy hours just a little while longer.
Cristina’s Pick: The Pioneer Woman Mugs
I’m always switching up the décor in my kitchen and now that we're heading into Fall, I'm already thinking of the holidays. I'm so excited about these mugs from The Pioneer Woman, available at Walmart in November and through the holidays. I love the joyous colors of these mugs, they're happy, not fussy, completely utilitarian (even dishwasher safe!), and affordable. That means I can switch them out again when Ree drops a new line…
