Happy First Week of November! ♥

Hello Friends! 

Well, another Halloween has come and gone! 

2015 vs. 2019 

We had a fun night.  Despite some stormy weather, nothing would stop this guy from trick or treating.  Yes, our Halloween's are a bit different now.  He no longer needs my hand to guide him from door to door, and prefers to go with his "buddies" than boring old mom.  But I'm always there in the background watching...and picking the peanut butter cups out of his bag.  One because he can't eat them...and two because I love them!  

My friend Courtney puts out an amazing spread of Halloween treats before trick or treating. 
We look forward to it every year! 

The kids had a ball.  I'm so glad he hasn't outgrown it yet : ) 

Am I the only one whose been living on a steady diet of  peanut butter cups and Milky Ways?  I can't be!  All I do is complain about it, yet I can't stop. 

This pace will continue until New Years! 

The days are getting really chilly now.  We've had our first fire in the wood burner and I've smelt that hint of frost in the air.  Change is coming.....

I'll still enjoy lovely fall afternoons with chocolate chip cookies and Snoopy 

And a steaming bowl of turkey chilli (easy recipe linked here if you're interested

We turned our clocks back on Saturday so it's dark by 4:30.  The nights are long.  More time for this... 

I'll soak up all the last bits of Fall because you know what's right around the corner??? 


(I may or may not have already started listening to Christmas music.... just saying! )

My tree goes up in two weeks and I'm pretty excited about it.  

Happy first week of November! The official start to all things holiday!

Get ready! XO
