This weekend has been one of simple pleasures.
The greatest pleasure of all perhaps being the realization that all my angst over my lack-luster feelings for fall were all for not-
Fall only arrived by calendar date a couple days ago,
and she found Chicago sitting quietly in weekend mode under misty, rainy skies.
And all of a sudden, I was ready for her.
Oh, am I ready.
Our little home welcomed fall with these pumpkin spice pancakes.
And some reading of the October issue of Real Simple.
A couple cozy movie nights.
The return of the Sunday Bake: husband's bread baking ritual.
Stock-piling cans of pumpkin in the pantry.
And my fall coat, found.
