Goodbye October!

I can’t believe that October has already come and gone. It was a great month around here. While I’ve been missing home a lot, New Jersey put on quite the spectacular fall show for us. The colors and weather were incredible. We had a lot of fun exploring our new home. Looking forward to what November has in store {maybe everything aside from the cold weather…}

Not working has allowed me to spend a lot of time in the kitchen which I have been enjoying. I’ve been incorporating 2 new recipes a week into our menu and have loved being back in the kitchen. We don’t have many options nearby for going out or even for takeout/delivery so whatever is on the menu is what happens in the kitchen. Sometimes I get so annoyed and just want to call for delivery but for the most part it’s worked really well for us. I do one big grocery shop each week, usually on Friday, and then if I need to I might run out mid week and pick something up. We have a German Butcher in town which I love. We can get fresh cut bacon, really yummy meats and breads.

Hello from New Jersey

Hello! It’s been quiet around here for a long time. I didn’t feel like I had much to say or share and so I went into hibernation. But now? Now I have lots of things to share, pictures to show you and recipes I’ve tried that I feel like I should share. And it’s all coming at you from our new home in New Jersey. Goodbye West Coast living and hello East Coast. I think once we get to know one another a bit better we’re going to be really good friends. Right now though my heart hurts and I miss Colorado terribly.

So for now while I get my bearings straight and getĀ settled here is something that I have been loving!

One of my MOST FAVORITE new discoveries is the Project Life App by Becky Higgins. I’ve been feeling so far behind on my PL’ing this year because of all the packing and moving and things being in storage…which is where they still are. Then the new app got released and I’ve been a scrapping machine! I think that I am still a fan of doing everything by hand but when I’m this far behind I’ve found it super easy to catch up. I can’t wait to embellish all the digital pages though! Here are a few pages I’ve made using the app. Can’t wait to print them and get them in my album. Happy Friday!
