READING: I just finished reading a lovely compilation of essays by Shauna Niequist. Her love letter to life around the table resonated with me on many levels. However the chapter that satisfied me most was about all the tastes; where she discusses exploring the world through different culinary dishes. Thereby coming to understand that people are nourished in different ways no matter where they live. Specifically she spoke of wanting to teach her children to appreciate different dishes in various native lands and I thought Yes. YES! That's what I want! Besides being an enjoyable read, the recipes are approachable and perfect for creating a simple or elaborate shared meal.

Also, have you read this article about being a stay-at-home-parent? Yeah.

WATCHING: So I finally got on the Parks and Recreation bandwagon and now I literally have an internal debate about which character is my favorite. Literally. I know, important stuff, right?

EATING: After Amelia was born one of our church friends brought us this vegan salad and I haven't stopped thinking about it since. It's basically like all the tastes of summer crammed into one bursting bite. Also, pumpkin. I dig it. I think a pumpkin tiramisu might be in order.

MAKING: The other day I was having one of those overwhelmed new parent moments and I realized that I hadn't been making time for me. Namely I had not made something in far too long. And I missed that. So last night I broke out the brads, paper, scissors, and string and made a festive little banner. Boom. Instantly I felt better.

EXCITED FOR: Concocting two-month-old Halloween costume ideas.
