Enjoying (Little) Things


Zoey wanted "happy" pumpkins this year so this is what she and I came up with for our jack-o-lanterns...the verdict is still out though for Ethan's. He usually wants one that seems to be in great distress or one that will be sure to add a little "fright" in with the "happy."


The cooler weather also always puts me in the mood to do more baking. Chocolate cupcakes seemed just the thing for an afternoon project this past week, Zoey of course was my helper and Ethan the "tester."

I've also started participating in Leah Piken Kolidas' Creative Every Day project and am super excited about it. I somehow stumbled upon her blog this past week and learned about her project and have decided that it will help me (in a pretty stress-free way) to continue to try to be creative in my daily endeavors. To learn more about the project just click on one of the buttons on the right column of my blog. Her idea to create daily includes pretty much anything and everything (baking, drawing, sketches, photography, etc.) and there isn't a "rule" to post every day...just to create every day. That's something that I want to be aware of and try to implement in my daily life and I like the aspect of no pressure within this seems to be more of an awareness thing, which I can appreciate.

It's a beautiful day here today. The sun is shining and we're all set to go enjoy an afternoon at the Zoo with friends. Hoping to get lots of pictures to share (and of course, lots of treats!).
