Thursday

I love fall. I love the colors. I love the crisp, clear air. I love wearing sweaters. I love cuddling in bed in the morning an extra minute or two, feeling the cold on my cheeks and being just barely warm enough under the blankets, with all of my favorite bodies, big and little, vying for space next to me. I love the funky layered costumes Mademoiselle dresses in every day because weather is as good an excuse as any. I love the smells of cinnamon and pumpkin and apples and squash and oatmeal cooking in various concoctions. I love the approach of the holiday season, the tricky little plans that start taking shape in my mind, and the anticipation of seeing family and friends I love and miss so much.


I just LOVE fall!

Ooh! I need your pumpkin muffin recipe when you get a chance, please. The one I used last year was not quite right, and I loved yours at Thanksgiving.

I'm trying to find it... I used it in June, so I know it's around here somewhere. Want a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe while you're waiting? :o) It's a good one. I made them last night, and we're trying our hardest not to eat them all at once!
