Sometimes you just have to forget about your to do list and get a breath of fresh air!
Here’s what happened this past week:
Well, here in America, lots of people were consumed with politics as the election happened last Tuesday. NO NOT ME! I was fully immersed in holiday baking. Still sort of am, but last week, things were going down. I think I got about 16 recipes made and shot over two days. Not an easy feat considering I have about 2 hours of amazing light in my kitchen (with the rest of the time being awful). Ah, winter. I see you.
None of the photos are edited yet, but was so thrilled to have been leading up to this week with all the previous recipe tests I had done. Thanksgiving and Christmas are the best times of year. I am so excited for the next few months. They are going to be delicious. Hope you are too 🙂

I also stopped off at Sweetgreen for my favorite harvest bowl and brought Eddie to Central Park to eat on a bench. It was certainly chilly, but still a sunny and beautiful day. With the leaves changing colors, the slight breeze making the leaves rustle, the quiet park and Eddie gathering acorns around me, it completely changed my mood. By 1pm, I was ready to face the day with a better attitude and a more grateful heart. SO glad I listened to my inner voice telling me to slow it down. In the grand scheme of things it was only 4 or 5 hours, but it made such a world of difference! …
