Favorite highlights from fall 2014…
Decorating with mini gourds, pumpkins, and pumpkin candles. Love adding simple touches around our place to make it feel festive.
Baked some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies at 7am on Halloween. May or may not have eaten cookie batter for breakfast that day. 🙂
Visited the beautiful mountains in Virginia for a friend’s wedding and went on a sunrise run one morning. So peaceful and quiet out there. The cows seemed rather annoyed that I was disturbing their morning solace.
A sweet client brought me pumpkin spice cupcakes one day!! Rob and I demolished these in no time.
Loved the pumpkin spice coffee at Nadoz this year. Since I drink my coffee black, it’s fun to try various flavors to mix things up a little bit!
Took our pup to the pumpkin patch – she wasn’t at all interested in the pumpkins, but loved trying to eat the hay!
I love dry erase boards on refrigerators because they give me an excuse to doodle. 🙂
Roasted the seeds from our pumpkins and they turned out really well! I just followed a recipe I found on Pinterest and they were delicious.
We spent lots of the warmer days at the park with Peyton, trying to burn off some of her endless energy!
Cooked up some homemade butternut squash soup one day when I was nursing a head cold. So soothing and comforting – at least as much as soup can be. 😉
Ran a chilly 5K race with my hubby in Kirkwood and placed 1st in my age group! The race was even called the HOPE 5K so it felt like destiny for me. 🙂
Lots of warm bowls of oatmeal for breakfast lately, topped with banana and peanut butter.
One of my birthday presents from my parents – 3 new kinds of tea to try! My favorite is the Vanilla Caramel.
One of my husband’s favorite meals that I’ve been making lately: BBQ Chicken and Gouda Cheese Pizza. YUM.
Chicken and rice soup with hearty, whole grain bread; from a cafe in Nashville.
Hiking at Castlewood State Park with my hubby and puppy on a beautiful day!
Fall has been fantastic in so many ways. I’m excited to see what winter holds! 🙂
