friday five.

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with ChristinaApril, and Natasha and sharing five things on my mind:
ONE: Jord was kind enough to send a gorgeous hand-crafted wood watch for H and he loves it! We were both really impressed with the great packaging (it comes in a wood box, and the watch is wrapped around a fancy herringbone stuffed pillow). H received a watch from the Fieldcrest Series, and it's made from natural West African zebrawood and maple. I've never seen anything like it before and it would make the perfect gift (Christmas will be here before you know it!).

TWO: After devoting the last few weekends to our master closet and Violet’s nursery we're taking a break from house projects for a few weeks. Instead I’m working on reading a few books. I just finished Luckiest Girl Alive and Silver Bay — they are totally different books (thriller v. romance) but they both were really good. 
"Syria's civil war is poised to become the worst humanitarian disaster of our time." - Neal Keny-Guyer, Mercy Corps CEO

THREE: By now it’s clear there is a major crisis going on in Syria and European countries are scrambling trying to figure out how to handle refugees fleeing war and violence. The situation is heartbreaking -- especially since HALF of the refugees are children. Learn more about the crisis AND how you can help.
FOUR: Violet is turning SIX months old next week. She had her first taste of “real” food last weekend — mashed up bananas with breast milk. After a little hesitation (and trying to figure out what to do with her tongue!) I think she liked it. She has a tooth ready to pop through her bottom gum any day now and she’s sleeping in her own nursery now (even naps!) It’s all bittersweet. I love seeing her change and develop, but it makes me a little sad my baby is growing up. I'm pretty sure that means mom and dad deserve cake or at the very least pancakes...right?!
FIVE: Peanut Butter & Co. just released Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter! It's delicious and my new favorite flavor. You can win a #PSiloveyou Box that includes a jar of Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter, a cute mug + Yankee Candle pumpkin spice votive candle.
Have a great weekend!
