Can I safely say that it’s the most wonderful time of the year? I know it’s usually reserved for Christmas, but I like to think that it starts when the air cools down, and all I can think about is elaborate meal planning and candles and the overall sense of being “cozy”.
Now that Halloween has come and gone, I’m prepping for Thanksgiving with almost an entire week off and hosting the big meal with Kyle as his family comes into town. Bon Appetit November proved to be very inspiring, and I can’t wait to try yet another stuffing recipe. Why don’t we make stuffing year round? It’s so good… going to have to think that over.
This month I’m hoping to get some time to experiment with watercolors and be a little more artistic and creative, in home decor and in cooking. I’ve been obsessing over making an apple crumble for probably three weeks, and it is 100% going to happen this month. Another project obsession? Velvet pants. I want to wear them… so I need to make them.
Last month I spent a ton of time working on a coat that I just shared last week and still kind of can’t believe I made. I know it doesn’t make sense to make three coats this year, especially since I live in a place that’s almost always over 80 degrees, but there are so many good patterns out there! I also binged Stranger Things season 1 and am just diving into season 2 – I am obsessed!
My favorite post this month was the pumpkin painting party. I had SO much fun with my girl friends watching Practical Magic and just catching up over crafts. Not to mention the invites were adorable… I just used Basic Invite to make more invitations for my brother’s fiancee’s shower and used the free addressing feature. Honestly amazing and a TOTAL time saver! What was your fave post?
