Oatmeal Season

Happy November 1st!

It’s no secret that Christmas is my absolute FAVORITE time of the year, but I’ve decided to start embracing Thanksgiving. It’s not just a holiday I have to get through before my favorite one. Plus I like the idea of a holiday where you can focus on being thankful.

And this week I am thankful for the fall chill we’ve been having here in North Carolina…sorry if you’re in the Northeast and you’re dealing with snow. But I love cooler weather. Falling leaves, pumpkins and gourds, shades of red and orange – these are a few of my favorite things.

NOT a favorite thing: RAGWEED. My allergies are kicking my butt this season, and it doesn’t help that there is a huge field of ragweed at the entrance to my neighborhood.

But back to the favorite things: Chilly mornings which mean perfect bowls of oatmeal!
