It's here. Really, really, here. After a mild summer that kept me wondering when the supreme midwestern humidity and heat would come back any minute, fall has arrived with its crisp mornings and glowy afternoons... the kicking on of the furnace in the morning for a few minutes to get the chill out of the air... It's got me thinking about pumpkin recipes and roasting acorn squash with brown sugar just because.
I'm off to Friday Morning Coffee in a little while. This is a weekly morning coffee and playdate with a few friends of mine. We rotate houses, but there is always a hot pot of coffee, something yummy to eat, kids running amok, and a full morning of laughter. It's such an institution around here that our little ones depend on it and always want to know what day it is and where we are going.
So today I have a crisp fall morning with cobalt blue skies and the promise of a cozy coffee morning with some of my very best friends and their kiddos. What could be better than that? I count myself one lucky gal.
What is making you feel blessed these days?
