It’s Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, and I have lots to be thankful for. It seemed like the perfect day for a walk since it snowed for the first time today, then broke out into a bright blue sky ten minutes later. As I walked in the cold air, leaves at my feet, bundled in my new toque my mom knit for me, I thanked God for so many things, big and small: the crisp air, my husband and best friend, family, for providing us new opportunities, nature, and for adventures to come. Life is good, and I am reminded to live in a state of thankfulness.
Autumn and especially October is one of my favourite times, for many reasons, but one being pumpkin season. I have a rule in October that everything I bake must contain pumpkin. I have yet to find the perfect pumpkin muffin but I did find the perfect pumpkin scone. This recipe is adapted (barely, cause I am not that good at adapting) from Style at Home Magazine. Also, I added a drizzle of pumpkin cream cheese icing which is not in the recipe. Enjoy.
This is the most romantic lookbook I have seen, set against a backdrop of pure rugged beauty.
We just moved into a new place and the internet man FINALLY came (those four days in the stone ages felt like a century). But I am back, and our new place has a wood burning fireplace with a mantle, and I am ready to spruce it up. Our place is from the 70′s so everything is a brownish/yellow colour right now, but the good thing about that era…WOOD. The mantle is a thick. raw wood, with a wood panelling above. Here are some “dressing up your fireplace” ideas I found.
