this weekend we welcomed fall.


i made spiced pumpkin oatmeal cookies with maple glaze. it is a great recipe and a yummy treat to bring to any upcoming gathering!



we went apple picking in watsonville, which is about one hour south of us in santa cruz county. more details to come!



i had been craving beard papa since last week and we finally stopped by for a delectable vanilla cream puff! who knew beard papa has locations all across the world?


and i participated in my church’s talent show by performing a choreographed dance dressed as a gangster rabbit (don’t ask) with two of my friends. i never would have participated had it not been for my friend, keri. do you have one of those friends that just makes you feel like a kid again? she is always getting me to participate in activities i otherwise wouldn’t. she has taught me  to not take myself too seriously. i am so grateful for good friends to make memories with.
