Weekend Photos + A Family Heirloom

We revamped our silhouette DIY project on Sunday. I usually wear my hair down, and Jason doesn't have facial hair anymore so we decided to change it up with new paper and a new design that felt more "us". You can see the original post here.

I went to Forever 21 to pick up some new clothes. I ended up getting a pretty black and white striped skirt and a Star Wars sweatshirt, but best of all was the photobooth! We hadn't done one in years, so it was a cute souvenir from our Saturday night.


My parents came over to visit our place to see our new floors. We tore out the old carpet and painted the underlying concrete. After they saw our Flat Iron building wall art it reminded them of a family heirloom from my Great Aunt Irene. It is a paperweight of the Flat Iron building from 100 years ago! I feel so lucky to have a piece of history and family in my home.

One of my favorite things is getting a letter in the mail from my pen pal Sara. Needless to say that she is awesome, and you can find her blog here.

I have always wanted to read Franny & Zooey. We stopped in at bookstore this weekend, and for $6 I just couldn't say no. Also, my mustache mug makes me really happy.

A little snapshot of our home. This is where we read, laugh, snuggle, listen to records, have long talks, and do homework. Not to mention where we had a mini Firefly marathon on Sunday.

This woman is amazing. Every month I download her beautiful desktop calendars. You can find it through her website here.

I feel like I've been so busy that I haven't shared as much of myself and my world on here. I have been mostly expressing my inspiration, but I am going to make it a priority to show what life is really like at Fort George.

♥ How was your weekend?


  1. Wonderful pictures as always, Naomi! I love that photo booth picture! You and Jason are the cutest!

  2. Your home is so cute! I would love to have shelves with tons of books in my home someday :) And pen pals are the best! I love snail mail!

  4. that paper weight is awesome and so is your mustache mug.

    1. I'm so happy that my parents gave it to me!

  5. These are so cool! I've been wanting to do silhouettes for forever, I need to finally do it... I've also been dying to do a photo booth. I see them all the time around here, I need to shove Josh into one and make him take photos with me (he would probably do it willingly!).


    1. You should definitely do the silhouettes! It's not as hard as you'd think :)
