The beautiful thing about how open my schedule is right now, is that when Gwen's school calls and says her stomach is bothering her, I can easily put aside the rest of my day's plans to pop over and grab her. (Don't worry, it was nothing.) This year I'm not pushing things. I'm giving her afternoons off to recover when she needs them, and taking my own days easy. School has been fine so far. She's having the normal getting her brain back into school mode adjustments, but we're getting used to the new routine. 

Its September now, and I'm so grateful for its arrival. Only 2.5 weeks until its officially Autumn, and while our feast will take place on the first day, decor will be going up early!! 

I've been cooking again, and it feels really good to enjoy my time in the kitchen once more. I had lost that enjoyment months ago... I felt like I was cooking the same things over and over. So, in case you're there too, or just looking for food ideas, here's what we've been cooking lately, that has me excited: 

- Potato/Leek Soup
- Beef Bourguignon (this recipe)
- Beef Brisket
- Kale Salad
- Fish Tacos with Chili-Lime Slaw
- Homemade Soy Ramen

Up soon: 

- Cinnamon-Bacon Carbonara (this recipe)
- Roasted Pork Shoulder
- Potstickers
- Lasagna

I wish I had more actual recipes for you, but I eyeball everything! (Happy to give more details if you ask thought!)  What are you cooking? 

What's making you happy lately?
