Favorite Things of Fall

These are my favorite purses of the season.  The navy  purse I found an estate sale for $1.00; the gold closure is very fun.  The polka-dotted purse was a gift from one of my kindergartners for my birthday (so sweet!). 
The cashier at Trader Joe's highly recommended "pumpkin butter" for the muffins I was planning on making.  I haven't tried it yet, but I will let you know what I think.  Sounds pretty good, right?
A few other favorites of mine are dried hydrangeas and gourds; most likely they are some of your favorites too :)

Check back soon for more "favorites" :)

Slow Sunday Pizza

Summer is offically over.  Weekends at our house can be pretty busy; but once in a while we can enjoy a relaxing fall afternoon at home.  It can be joyful to spend the day slowly cooking a dinner.  If you have an afternoon open, I'd recommend giving rhe Prairie Bay Margherita Pizza recipe a try from the The Minnesota Homegrown Cookbook.  This is a great recipe for using up basil if you have an abundance from your summer garden :).

Sunrise at the Cabin

"Oh God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you; as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you."

~Psalm 63:1-3

Almost 26

My wonderful husband took me out for a night on the town this Friday. We celebrated my 26th birthday one week early.

After work he surprised me with a few of my favorites....

Dinner was delightful at La Grolla in St. Paul. We had our favorite dessert (chocolate turtle cake) at Cafe Latte.
A wonderful way to celebrate 26 years!

Stillwater Day Trip

Josh and I took a Saturday to go to Stillwater a few weekends ago. We enjoyed good food, browsed through antiques, and spent a beautiful day together. It was a lovely time!
