Have a Cozy Thanksgiving

I almost got a post together, but the mailman and his noisy truck prematurely woke up Amelia from her nap and I have some choice words and feelings about that. I’m signing off for Thanksgiving! Time to start baking the pies and decking the halls. (You will likely find my family in the middle of a cut-your-own Christmas tree farm come Friday morning.) Whether you find yourself in happy times or not, I hope you can take the time to reflect on the blessings in your life. Here is some reading for what is hopefully a long weekend for you! Love the concept of emotional labor, especially as we enter into the holiday season. The witching hour, in photos. I related with every.single.one. What happen

Words of Wisdom and Spinach + Eggs

“I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

TGIF

What are you up to this weekend? We took the girls on our annual visit to the cider mill today after they both had bloodwork done (and poor Amelia needs to go back because they couldn't find her veins in either arm).

On criticizing others' parenting choices. Really liked these toddler Montessori tips, especially on praise. Made me laugh. Inspiration to make my own bone broth (maybe). Adde

Halloween + Things

How was your Halloween? Here are Little Lou Peep and her sheep, in all their glory: I'm a pretty big Halloween grinch, and am always happy when the holiday is over. This was probably our worst Halloween yet in terms of putting forth the effort to get into the Halloween spirit (if that's even a thing); we are "bowl people" since both of us want to go door-to-door with the girls, and I'm pretty sure our supply was depleted within minutes, since we get a TON of trick-or-treaters. We even left the bowl out once we were home from trick-or-treating, since we needed to get dinner in the girls quickly and put them to bed, and our lights were turned off by 6:15 when we ran out of candy, earliest ever
