Our Little In-Home Crackling Campfire

Happy Wednesday, friends! This week has been absolutely one for the books – and it’s only Wednesday. It’s the busiest week of the year at my job with heaps of multitasking, something I am not particularly fond of.

It’s Fall, Y’all!

Happy Monday, Friends! I don’t often blog in the morning, but I’m curled up with my coffee and have a few extra minutes before making breakfast. It is so chilly here in New Hampshire this morning – a mere 50 degrees! This weather has me thinking about my most favorite season: fall.

Most importantly, beside her is the headline ‘it’s fall, y’all!’ to which my heart said a big ‘amen!’. That is of the most joyful statements to my ears.

Fortunately, I found a solution earlier this year.
