autumn chalkboard

Hello friends! It’s been a while. I took a blogging hiatus but I’m back. Summer was just too much fun and with two of my three kiddos off at school this year, I’m starting to get back into the swing of things. Finally. I’m a slow learner.

Today I’m home for the day with a sick kiddo, it’s been a couple of weeks of illness circling through our house, among other things. I have a super sexy new skin condition to share with you in a later post. Lucky you!

Life has been a little intense lately, and I mean that on both sides of hard and good. I am looking forward to sharing with you my insights, what I’ve been cooking up in the kitchen and all my other ramblings in upcoming posts.

It’s Tuesday, and we all know it’s the worst day of the week. So let me just share some of my favorites, what I’m enjoying right this minute.

Music: I’ve been listening to the X Ambassadors a lot. Winter makes me sluggish, and they pick me up. Plus they have a very cool back story.

Podcast: Check out Jen Hatmaker’s Podcast: For The Love if you haven’t already. I love having these on while I’m doing things around the house and Jen never disappoints.

Book: Go read When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi (affiliate link). This beautiful memoir is so lovely, heartbreaking and hopeful all at once. You will be changed.

Food: Right now I’m loving soups, and this Spinach Tortellini Soup has just a few ingredients, comes together fast and is kid approved. Winning. (Thank you Kelly!)

Home: It’s getting colder and it’s time for more hygge. Hygge: the Danish concept of coziness…the art of creating warmth, comfort, and wellbeing through connection, treasuring the moment, and surrounding yourself with things you love. (This is a good little book that explains how to practice hygge.) One way we’ve been slowing down and connecting each day is by gathering around the table after dinner for homework with candles, a warm treat, and music. It’s amazing how this simple practice brings peace and connection into our crazy evenings.

How are you enjoying our lovely autumn?

Until next time!
