October 2020

I’m finding it hard to believe that I’m posting October already! September flew by quicker than the leaves dropping from trees. Regardless, October has arrived and with it much cooler temperatures. It’s time to cozy up inside and embrace all that is Autumn. Here in the northeast this change of the season is the most striking of all. The vibrant colors, overflowing pumpkin patches, dried corn stalks and farmers stands brimming with winter squashes of every variety. I know I’m ready to turn the oven on and start cooking long braised comfort food and baking apple treats! Look for plenty of my favorite recipes in the “From the Kitchen” category.  Be sure to check out my store The Hive Shop for new items added in the Fall Category. In the meantime, get outside and enjoy the natural beauty of this fleeting season. Follow me on Instagram for a daily dose of inspiration! Wishing you all a glorious October!

September 2020

Shortened days and cooler nights have come sneaking in and once again September is upon us. I’ve said often enough that September always seems to be more like New Years for me. This is the season of such visible change, in nature around us and in our lives as well. Children off to school, starting a new grade and new adventures. It is true this season will be different for us all, but it is also an opportunity to embrace that which seems foreign and take on the challenge. Home has become so much more now and in this season of slowly moving indoors, its nice to truly make that our comfort zone. Light the candles and pull out the cozy blankets. Trade out the decor for warmer colors and layer on the throw pillows. Remember to check my Hive Shop for lots of Autumn accessories and for those days when we want lucsious smells wafting through the house, check all my recipes for baking (it is apple season after all!) and slow cooked meals. A happy September to you all my friends.  Welcome to Autumn.
