Foggy sunrise

What a beautiful morning. Fog has a way of softening things and creating quite the enchanting atmosphere. :)

Pumpkin harvest 2019

 This year, with our dear little one on the way, I knew I didn't want to do a lot of canning this fall, so instead of loading the garden up, I planted loads of pumpkins! They are easy to take care of, you don't have to weed around them, and oh so fun in the fall!


My kids are hosting a pumpkin sale this upcoming weekend and plan to make pumpkin cookies and the whole sha-bang. :)

Pumpkins are so fun because of the variety, and I firmly believe in the adage "variety is the spice of life."

Pizza oven, step 4: Feast!

So, our pizza oven isn't really complete--we plan on dressing up the outside of it a bit with some stucco and the like--BUT it is totally functional, so we couldn't resist firing it up with some family this weekend. It worked like a charm--pizza was delicious and easy to prepare. And FAST. 

Once the oven reached the blistering 900 degrees, my husband swept the coals to the exterior and made a clean cooking surface in the middle.

Then, in went the pizzas! This was actually our last pizza to go in. 

Yum! so delicious. Seriously cooked in under 2 minutes. We are experimenting with dough recipes and such--I'll let you know what we settle on. :)

Fall Mantel

Nothing like a sunflower bouquet at that lovely time of year when summer is ending and fall beginning.
