What a wonderful week! The weather is simply perfect, making it easy to explore new trails. There was lots of time in the kitchen and lots of time with friends, and even some time in my happiest place (Betty!). We have had a sometimes (very) difficult year, but weeks like this remind me that life is good– always. Take a peek at my little smiles!
She prefers Daddy’s side.
We had our first freeze! Tomatoes had to come in.
Speaking of tomatoes, we had the coziest tomato soup with crab and homemade croutons!
Just one of John’s mother’s recipe books.
Asian condiments for sushi night at home.
Betty is shorter than the truck! I adore her.
Every day should start like this.
John modeling his fashion-forward “hippie tuxedo.”
I’m raising the roof because it’s all downhill to the wine.
I roasted a chicken! I’ll tell you about it soon.
I spent a gorgeous morning exploring a new trail with some girlfriends.
My friend, Alison, talked me into taking a 4-week painting class. I’m hooked!
Fajitas + panini maker = brilliant. More on that later.
She brings joy to every day.
Perfect fall weather all week!
One year ago, I was trying to get used to new short hair.
Two years ago, I began my love affair with acupuncture.
Three years ago, my job included perusing travel magazines.
And this morning, applesauce in the crockpot has my kitchen smelling like cinnamon.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
