Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real {fun fall moments}

Need I explain?  Who doesn't fall in love with the jewel tones of this season?

Daddy being able to stop by for KC's school Halloween party made a small someone supremely happy!


Our three boys and our neighbor's boys coordinated their costumes without any of the adults realizing the plan.  Mario, Luigi, Waluigi and two Toads made quite a splash in the neighborhood while Trick or Treating.  All the Super Mario fans gave them kudos.

The irony of this moment on the deck made me laugh and I had to take a photo.  Pardon the unpainted toes - they're red now!  Thanks, Mom, for sending me the cookbook.  I love it!  Putting your feet up on a sunny afternoon on the deck while reading a gorgeous cookbook = heaven!  I highly recommend you try it yourself.  

Gratefully sharing here every Thursday

  1. Love your little man's hand stamp happiness and the bark photos :) Great job of capturing fall! Have a good week!

  2. I can tell that you and your camera have an on going relationship. Keep it up! ;D

  3. I love the Halloween costumes! What smarties to coordinate that :) Your tree photos are great. You're right - there isn't much better than the fall colors.

  4. Well, I guess there are two barefoot contessas! I haven't tried any of her recipes yet, but from looking at her cookbooks, I don't think it will be long.

    I love the costumes!! Terrific! And the first photo is so pretty - I get very little depth of field with my point-and-shoots.

  5. Your littlest one is simply precious! Daddy-time is the best. And the Barefoot Contessa? Love her. I am actually making her roasted butternut squash tonight.... :)

  6. LOOOOVE that first photo. SO beautiful.

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals

Saturday Surfing {favorite spots from around the web}

Saturdays are the perfect time for a little aimless web-wandering and here are few of my recent reads I'd like to recommend to you. The Wild Surrender of Motherhood by Carrie Ann Moss @Annapurna Living This new website launched this week and is absolutely lovely. Remember Carrie Ann Moss from the Matrix movies? Well she is now the founder and inspiration behind this blog.  Here is an excerpt of her vision for : FROM CARRIE-ANNE ... “To see womanhood through eyes of grace.”  My desire is to live in a world where nourishment is valued. I believe a nourished family will lead to a nourished world. I believe life is beautiful and that our divine purpose in this world is to nurture the earth by respecting it and being grateful for what it provides us. My wish is to inspire others to create beautiful, honest and satisfying lives. My Other Ex: Women's True Stories of Leaving and Losing Friends   @A Design So Vast Unfortunately, over the past few
