I'm a week late in writing this, but he was a week and a half late in getting here, and if I've learned anything in this process, it's that time works differently now.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you all had a beautiful Christmas and that you are enjoying the excitement that the new beginnings of the fresh start the New Year brings.

One sure-fire way to love morning is to bake before bed. Last night I finally put the little pie pumpkin we bought Easton to good use (we never got around to carving it anyway). I love pumpkin recipes all fall (September-November!), and this was a hit this morning with coffee around here. Since it was… Continue reading What’s for Breakfast:
Hello November. Hello time change that makes no sense if you have kids or pets. Hello wool sweaters & knit hats, jackets & mittens. Hello baked goods, life-affirming soups, afternoon tea, a bigger mug of coffee in the mornings. Hello candlelight, good books, reflection time, more yoga, new daily rhythms. I've been meaning to write… Continue reading Fall/Winter Daily Rhythm
I've never been a big fan of scary movies. On Halloween night, I usually prefer to stay at home and pass out candy while watching movies. My favorite is Practical Magic.
