This is one of my most FAVORITE meals to make for the Fall. I gotta be honest, I am not a huge “soup” person, but I will ALWAYS pick this if it’s on the menu at a restaurant and we make it at home all of the time. It’s warm, filling, a little sweet, and a lot of delicious.
It is also dairy-free, so that’s a win/win =]
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
When the seasons change, the bathing-suits get packed away, and the kids head back to school it always brings me back to that “new school year feeling”.
When I was in school, I would always get so excited to wear a new outfit on the first day, see my friends again, and secretly, I always got giddy excited about learning something new. I loved the smell of new parchment paper and the must of an old textbook that you would get to write your name in because you “owned it” from 2008-2009. (I don’t even know if they still use these anymore.. But still! It was the best.)
There was something magical about a new beginning and the unknown.
One thing I absolutely LOVE about living in New England is that the season’s change.
This summer was weird, probably for most of us. Even though I love the summertime with my whole heart and soul, my sister and I kept saying that we felt like this Fall would be a turning point. Let’s just say we were looking forward to this year’s change of seasons.
It’s a… Mother’s Intuition?
If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the announcement that Dan and I are expecting a baby boy come February of 2021! I’m not exactly sure of the due date because I keep forgetting to ask. =]
About two weeks ago was the last time I tried to sit down and write a blog and to finish the July Newsletter. I only had to write the featured blog and go through some final edits, which shouldn’t take me too long. But when I sat in front of my computer, trying to get myself into the right mindset, I just couldn’t do it.

I recently made this meal for a couple of friends who came over to see the house and our pup. I will toot my own horn here and say that it was pretty much the best meal I have made this summer. Hands down. It was light, fresh, and delicious, so obviously I had to share it with you today.
So guys… big announcement here… WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! =D
Like I have a mortgage, house insurance, and we have to buy a lawnmower!! What is life?!
We are so freaking excited and weirded out at the same time that we are officially real adults and homeowners. After 4 years of being in an apartment together, we are ready to have a little bit more of our own space to spread out. I can’t wait to insta story it for you guys once we officially close and move in!
I wanted to share with you this journey just so you could see how similar buying a house is to searching for the perfect candidate for a job. (You will also start to notice how this theme can be applied to many other areas of your life).
This title sounds like a really low vibration, almost negative theme, for my peppy happy self, but I am not always happy and peppy, and this is a topic I recently experienced so I thought I would share it with you today. =]
When I was a kid, the worst thing my mom could have said to me was “ I’m just disappointed”. Cue eyes filling with tears and a knife to the chest. It was the absolute WORST and it would wreck me every time. To this day, it’s the worst form of being reprimanded.
But I don’t think I really understood what disappointment was or felt like until I was older.
Every year the thing I most look forward to is my summer vacations. I typically take a couple of long weekends here and there and then I take off one full week vacation with Dan or my family. It’s my absolute favorite and I look forward to it every year. We have done a big extravagant vacation line spending 10 days in Italy to smaller quaint vacations like a week in a little cottage by the Bay at the Cape.
