Ryan and I arrived back home in Ocala a little after 5 p.m.

We wasted no time busting out some of the goodies we purchased this weekend to help our home come together a bit.

Ta da!

The pictures above the table are images from our wedding! I edited the prints to make them sepia before ordering them in 11×14 prints from Shutterfly.

We framed them using new frames from HomeGoods for a uniform look.

I have such a hard time deciding on artwork and pictures for our house. I need wall décor to match the overall look of a room and make me smile. The second caveat is much harder to meet than the first.

Fortunately wedding pictures always make me smile and I like that the images we framed aren’t too “wedding-y.” I really wish we could paint the walls a nice warm color, but that was a “no go” in the homeowners eyes, so the white walls are here to stay.

Since it is now October, it was finally time to take out the fall decorations and cover our house in pumpkin flare.

Turns out we don’t have nearly as much fall décor as I thought! Since we moved to a small town, the house we’re currently renting is significantly larger than our previous rentals, so my small box of decorations doesn’t stretch very far.

Now it’s time to unwind, relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend. My sister is letting us borrow season one of Modern Family and Ryan and I are excited to catch up on a show so many of you guys recommended we watch.

    I love your fall decorations! I think I need to plan a trip to Home Goods. I don’t have any fall decorations in my house yet. I love decorating with those tiny pumpkins. I usually decorate the house with them for the fall oh and candy corn in the candy dishes. They are a must for fall! 🙂

    I love decorating for Fall. We’re moving this weekend and literally the only thing I have unpacked so far are my Fall candles/decorations – you know, the important things 🙂

    If u lower the pics and put them a little closer together they won’t look like they are floating on the walls. Everything else looks great!
