What we’re eating this week:Potato, Sausage and Leek Soup. I can’t get enough since the temps keep dropping.Β 

What I’m reminiscing about:I’ve found myself daydreaming about our trip to Italy (Capri, Tuscany, and Florence) a lot lately!

What I’m loving:

The people in my life, plain and simple. πŸ™‚Β 

What we’ve been up to:

Birthday celebrations!

What I’m dreading:

Nothing and I love that. πŸ™‚

What I’m working on:

Grading papers and finishing up Christmas shopping. You can view some of my ideas from last year, here. πŸ™‚Β 

What I’m excited about:

That time between Thanksgiving and Christmas when everything feels farm and cozy and it’s spent with a lot of family and friends. πŸ™‚

What I’m watching/reading:Our church is doing a women’s study called Finding I AMΒ by Lysa TerKeurst. None of the days or times that our church offered worked with my schedule, which I was SO bummed about because everyone kept raving how great the study is. I decided that nothing was holding me back from buying the book and doing the study on my own, so that’s exactly what I did. πŸ™‚Β 

I’ve been watching the videos online and completing the study book and so far, it’s been living up to the hype!

What I’m listening to:I used to work at the kids store for Polo Ralph Lauren. They always had the most soothing and relaxing soundtrack playing and I could never pinpoint what songs reminding of it until I tried Frank Sinatra’s Pandora station. I have been listening to it for the last few weeks. πŸ™‚Β 

What I’m wearing:

Nothing especially new. I need to go shopping! Any suggestions?

What I’m doing this weekend:

After every weekend being filled to the brim, having nothing on our agenda has me really, really excited!

What I’m looking forward to next month:

Is it too early to be excited about Thanksgiving break? (Didn’t think so! πŸ˜‰ )

What else is new:

The fact that my hairs getting longer probably doesn’t interest anyone, so nothing really! πŸ˜‰Β 

Bonus Question:Β β€œWhat’s your favorite Thanksgiving side dish?”I love, love, love Katie Lee’s, “Late Summer Farro,Butternut Squash, and Arugula Salad,” from her Endless Summer Cookbook. It’s light and hearty with so many tastes that pair perfect with Thanksgiving food! I also am (understandably so) a big fan of My Grandma’s Sweet Potato Dish if you are looking for something a little more traditional and quick to whip up!

…and there goes October! So crazy! Praying November has some great things in store for everyone!
