I love to cook. I also love nights when I don’t have to. A fun fancypants dinner with the Mayor, Town Council members, and friends. Good food, good times, and more than a little wine.

So winter has begun in earnest. While it’s not my favorite, I won’t complain. I have friends that have been stuck in traffic for hours or have to stay overnight at school because the roads are so gridlocked or closed, they can’t get home. My car slid through an intersection on the way home. So much to be thankful for, today and every day. ☃️

My kids don’t really eat pierogis. Luckily I have friends that do. And yes, this cheesesteak pierogi was every bit as delicious as you’d think it was.

It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

When you want something delicious and just can’t think straight and you tell the restaurant staff, “just make it how you think it’s most delicious,” and they do you a solid. I ended up with a Mexican Torta with spicy pork, onions, sliced avocado, lettuce, cilantro, tomatoes, melted cheese, and jalapeños. I split it with a friend and it was every bit as good as it sounds.

Yesterday I had a three hour work meeting and came home and became a sloth for the rest of the day. Maddie made French Toast and cupcakes, and finished her day by painting this freehand. Basically I want to be her when I grow up. 🌺

Pretty much the only thing I read are business books, personal development books, and @people. I started this one at the bookstore today and it’s a good one. What’s on YOUR nightstand? 📚

Sometime in the next month or so, I shall no doubt be complaining about the bitter cold and the snow and go in complete hibernation mode until early March. So in the meantime, I vow to enjoy every last bit of the beautiful Fall weather while we have it, because with colors this amazing, how can you not? 🧡

One minute, they’re learning how to walk and talk and squealing with glee. The next minute, they’re driving and you’re going on college tours with them. I know my job is to give them roots and wings, but man, parenting is not for the faint of heart. ❤️

Why YES, I DID dig this rock out of the ground and bring it home. I mean, can you blame me? ❤️

Some days, I religiously follow IG algorithms and some days ... I’m like ... nah ... I’m the boss, applesauce and I’m gonna post whenever I want. Such a beautiful Fall morning, hello November!
