Here's how I'm making memories in October.
Making my travel memories last a lifetime.
I love having something I can physically share with the offline people in my life - as well as put proudly on display in our house. But I hadn't anticipated how much peace of mind I'd feel by knowing that the memories from a trip were preserved in a way that didn't involve computers and online storage. I know it might sound silly, but there's just something reassuring about having your photos in hard copy and knowing they're not just floating out in cyber space.
Embracing autumn traditions
Yet this fall, we're staying put. A number of things just didn't come together for our anticipated autumn adventure and so our next big trip is going to be in the spring. But I don't mind that much. We're embracing the beautiful Canadian countryside and making our own memories and starting new seasonal traditions.
A Thanksgiving extravaganza!
I decided upon a classic pumpkin pie (and poured through recipes to find the best one) and a caramel apple-Snicker's chocolate peanut cake. They both turned out perfectly! I will definitely make the pumpkin pie again and again - this recipe is a keeper. The apple-Snicker's cake was a real scene stealer and tasted delicious but it was A LOT of work. I'll make it again.... someday! You can find these recipes (and more) on our holiday themed Pinterest board.
