inspiring person : my sister | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.com

Today is Halloween, which for most means a day of indulging ourselves in the sweetest of treats and becoming someone else for a little bit. Although I do indulge in sweets I am so incredibly lucky, because I was blessed with my sister and best friend on Halloween. Growing up we never celebrated Halloween, because it was Lacey’s day, which it should be. I wanted to take a moment today to showcase such a beautiful young lady for my inspiring person this month. She is by far one of my greatest inspirations in everyday life and I’m so grateful to have her as my family.

 

Lacey is turning twenty today which is so strange! We will both finally be in our twenties together. She is seven years younger then me (yes if the math is done I seem old), but she is the taller one. I remember the day she was born so clearly. I was so excited to get a sister and I’m still so happy I have her. Although we are very different in our interest we are as close as two can get. So twenty years ago while everyone was out trick or treating in my class I was hugging an adorable 7 pound baby (with huge feet I might add… hehe) that was known to change my life. inspiring person : my sister | Nuance Design | LindyJacoby.com

With every step Lacey has taken in her life she has inspired me in more then one way. She is by far the most caring person I know. She is the most open minded person I have ever met. Not in the open minded sense that she believea in distinct things, but she has the ability to care and empathies with anyone. This is such a rare but beautiful quality. If more people, even just a few more, were like Lacey in having such a huge heart to anyone then our world would drastically look different. She has taught me how to embrace life beyond the daily goals of what should be and care for people better. Because of Lacey I have learned to be a much better person.

 

I’m fortunate to be attached to Lacey in the sense of family. She is stuck with me, haha (my semi evil laugh happened if you can imagine it). Through family we have grown so close and have created a bond that will never go away. Lacey has been through a lot with me. I mean A LOT. She has been the rock who has held me up. I could never repay her for her strength she offered during the times of personal struggles we have faced together. Through these times Lacey has taught me how to be selfless in all aspects. She has the biggest heart, which I don’t know where she carries it because she’s so skinny, but the world will someday know how big it is.

 

She is my person and everyone should have Lacey in their life. So happy birthday my little sis! I love you deeply!

A couple of weekends ago I experienced Fury. It was a stunning movie. Although it is hard to watch and brutal most of the time it was a movie I have been sharing with everyone I talk to. It was a surprising (a great surprise) to see Shia LaBeouf stand out above all characters. He made me have a new appreciation for acting and made me so excited to see what role he plays in next. He did a truly incredible job. The other actors played beautifully and it was wonderful to see them all bounce off each other even though their characters were vastly different. I also loved the set design of this movie. I couldn’t find too many images of it, so again I recommend watching the movie. The landscapes are breathtaking even though it is a hard and dirty movie. The architecture is so beautiful. It is a movie that will move you.

It is almost that time of year where you will cram as many people in your house as you can to celebrate several different occasions. These events can bring the best memories, but of course the fun stress prior brings anticipated excitement of making sure everything is right. In times like these we tend to gather all the chairs throughout the house and extra tables to feed and put everyone in a central location. This can sometimes lead to damaging style. I gathered an image that brings the best of both worlds, great style while mixing and matching furniture. A start to create your best environment during these holiday gatherings.

Halloween is this week, which is always the kick off for me on fall treats. I went back in the archives and pulled a few of my favorite fall recipes from my collection. If you haven’t tried them already I highly suggest trying the candy apples, the apple cider caramels, a delicious chai latte recipe and the perfect mini apple hand pies. What are some of your favorite treats for this season?

No. 1 | a cute puppy

I don’t know if it’s because I have a puppy (he’s 8 months now and 80#!), but I have a huge soft spot for puppies! I have been a follower of Wit & Delight’s instagram for awhile, but I’m been ultra excited since Kate got her adorable puppy. The adorable tiny fur ball is quite the model.

No. 2 | cupcakes

We all love cupcakes. I was thrilled when I found this sea salt buttercream & chocolate cupcake recipe on Lady and Pups. I’m always looking for new delicious recipes and I can’t wait to try this one!

No. 3 | lovely interiors

As a designer I am constantly seeking new inspiration. I am in love with this home tour on Style Me Pretty Living. It is a must to look at if you haven’t seen it already. I love everything about it!

No. 4 | calligraphy

I admit I would love to have a talented calligraphy hand, but I don’t. I’m working on it though. It is so lovely and I haven’t been able to have the time, but one day! Here is a wonderful resource from besotted for all those who love it!
