Saturday Mornings

It's a cloudy Saturday morning, and we are celebrating with pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes and Netflix. It's a perfect day so far. 


Fall Decor Tour

I love fall for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to: the weather; sweater season; Halloween(!!); caramel apples everywhere; cinnamon candles; football (!!); and last, but in no way orange couch looking like it finally belongs in all of its festive glory, haha.

Anniversary Weekend Trip to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania

Russell and I have been married for three years this October. To celebrate, we took a weekend trip to one of our "bucket list" places - Jim Thorpe, PA, a quaint little town in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. It's about five hours from home, so the whole trip made for a short little … Continue reading Anniversary Weekend Trip to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania

Fall Weekend Fun

I'm currently enjoying the perfect Sunday - curled up on the couch with my feet up, watching football, and relaxing after having one of the most full and fun weekends I've had in awhile.

I admittedly was ready for fall in early August, and that's when … Continue reading Crock-Pot Apple Cider Pork Roast Recipe

Harvest Season

This is what I get for complaining all of July and August that it wasn't hot enough out for our tomatoes to ripen. Guess we are going to be canning this weekend!       


Wishing for Autumn

It's almost 90 degrees outside, but I'm ready for the magic of fall to wash over me.


Winter-Proofing Your Plants

Since we've bought our home, we've poured quite a bit of time and money into re-doing our landscaping. (See the before-and-after of our back yard, here). Last winter, the polar vortex almost off'd our azalea bushes, but they've somehow managed to come back. They bloomed late in the summer and then took off growing at … Continue reading Winter-Proofing Your Plants
