Latest Happenings:

It feels like just a couple of weeks ago we were saying “when is fall going to be here?!” and now the weather is in the 30s and 40s and my favorite holiday is less than two weeks away! I love the laid back atmosphere of Thanksgiving day and of course all the food (although I have my own updated versions of many classics!). If you subscribe to my newsletter, stay tuned for my Thanksgiving roundup coming this Friday!
