This doormat made me laugh. Managing expectations! — Joanna

cinnamon projects incense

This weekend, we went to my friend’s apartment in Connecticut, and when we walked in, I couldn’t believe the amazing scent. It smelled like a bonfire — cozy, warm, fresh. It turns out that he was burning Cinnamon Projects 12 a.m. incense. I’ve never been an incense person, but I fell in love and we’ve been burning it in our home ever since. — Joanna

jcrew sweater

I’ve finally figured out something about myself — I feel most comfortable and like myself when I’m wearing jeans, flats, and a neutral sweater. For my fall uniform, I started with this sweater from J.Crew. It’s soft, comfortable and has a great three-button shoulder detail. Be warned, friends and family! You’ll be seeing a lot of it. (Two other pretty button sweaters: black and cardigan.) — Jenny

To belatedly celebrate our tenth anniversary, Alex and I are going to Charleston for a long weekend at the end of October. We’ve never been and are so excited! Do you have any recommendations for restaurants or things to do? We’re open to anything and can’t wait to explore. Update: Here’s a short recap of what we did. Thank you so much for the recommendations! — Joanna

P.S. More fun things, and the dinner-changing magic of candlesticks.
