Well, in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been cutting back on blogging and my online presence this summer so I could focus more on my in-life presence as we spent time with our kids and tried to make the most of every moment!  We truly had a wonderful summer, but now that fall is coming, my plan is to be back on the blog more again!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I just made the trip down with my two older kids to get them settled into college in Florida (yes, these are their Senior and Junior years), and then I met up with my friend Denise there and drove back with her to her home in Texas, making a detour in Waco once again!  I was so excited to eat at Magnolia Table this time since it wasn’t open last year when we did this!  More on the Magnolia Table later, but for now I wanted to share a few shots of all the beautiful inspiration that is Magnolia!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day on Tuesday when we were there, and the crowds were so minimal it was amazing.


The displays inside were just as amazing with a hint of fall in warm tones.  The theme they have chosen for fall is “You have been made ready”, and I truly love both the message and the artistic execution of it!



And the stacked letter boards!  Love!















We even had to take pic in the new bathrooms because they were so cute, too!  (My apologies to the lady whose feet were captured in the picture.  It would typically be me that would be photographed in a less than perfect scenario like this!)  Leave it to Joanna to be able to make a public restroom a cute space!


They even had a planting station in the garden area, where Denise bought an adorable little succulent that they planted for her.





We also stopped over at Clint Harp’s Shop, Harp Design Co., to catch some inspiration there!  It was full of great inspo for fall as well!







And as for Magnolia Table, we couldn’t get enough.  We actually ate both breakfast and lunch there since there was no wait!




For breakfast, we tried to eat light, so we ordered JoJo’s biscuits with the strawberry butter, a side of the bacon, and a side of the gourmet tater tots.  All amazing!




Since I love details, I could not get enough of every single little piece of eye candy.



For Magnolia Table merchandise and coffees, you can stop in at the Take Away.  It’s all just too cute.





After our breakfast and trip to the Silos and Market and Bakery, we went back over for lunch for salads and they were beautiful, fresh, and delicious!  I just wish I could be there enough to try everything!
