Can I get an ‘Amen? What a week. I have noticed a trend among my fellow friends and community and it seems like this has been a long and tiring week. BUT we made it and now we can take the weekend to recharge the batteries.
I plan to recharge mine tonight with a night in on my couch, some warm tea and a movie. Tomorrow we are going to spend some time with friends carving pumpkins and enjoying fall festivities. I feel like Mikey and I are constantly saying that we are going to slow down in the fall and I honestly think (and hope) that this is the start of the slow down. Let the healthy diet and exercise really start (fingers crossed) and spend more time relaxing and less time traveling and socializing.
I am excited for more time to bake and cook! I feel like it has been a year since I spent an entire day baking and cooking and I can’t wait to spend some time with my giant stack of new recipes!
No matter if fall is your busy season or if you too feel like you are slowing down now after a whirlwind summer, make sure that you find time to reflect on the season that passed. Good and bad, be thankful for the change that comes with each season as a sort of new beginning. Time to start a new hobby, mend an old friendship or create new relationships. Maybe you form a new routine, like going to get donuts and coffee every Saturday or reading 1 chapter of that book everyone has been reading. Whatever it is, make time for it. Make time for family, friends and always, always, make a little time to treat yo’self.
Like, especially treat yourself to donuts. Preferably like the picture below, drizzled with chocolate and STUFFED with peanut butter.
I love hats. I have a few hats (Mikey has way more) in my collection and I always wish that I wore them more. Now that I’m a yoga teacher I rock the sweaty bun most days, but often a hat is needed to cover up the mess of hair that appears after the sweaty hi-bun. I love the whole street style look with an edgy hat. So cute.
Warm drink season is here. I have not had it, but hear that Hot Buttered Rum is the best treat in the world. I’m going to make some tomorrow and I can’t wait. A drink that includes butter seems like a genius idea.
From afar this looks like a waffle. But really, it’s a Spaghetti Squash Fritter with Dill Yogurt Sauce. Yeah. Sounds great, right? Also healthy. Squash season is the best. I loveeeeeee to cook in the fall. My favorite thing is to load up on seasonal fruits and veggies and mix them all together in new and exciting ways. You better believe I’m going to dig out my waffle iron and give these babies a go!
I’m typically drawn to all white everything when it comes to living spaces. BUT, I also love the contrast of super dark everything as well. I love this boho inspired room with the bright pops of color. It’s so unexpected and cool. I just want to become this homeowners friend so they invite me over for super fancy pizza and PBR. Then the neighbor from down the hall would come and play his guitar and it would get weird, but still feel cool because of the decor…(I think I watch too much tv).
