"November comes and November goes..."

...With the last red berries
And the first white snows.
With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.
The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring."

{Elizabeth Coatsworth}

I'm not quite sure why, but this time of year brings up a certain nostalgia with me. It could be the woodsmoke smell, the changing seasons, or the holidays. 
I'm never really sure, but what I do know is that around this time of year, I feel like tucking in close, gathering my family around me, longer, slow mornings, cuddles on the couch, more crafts, more books, less leaving the house. 

It took until November, but the weather around here is finally chilly. We had a lovely October, warm and full of leaves and sun. We spent almost every day outside soaking it all up. We didn't turn on our heat until last week, which is truly a New England miracle! 

Here I've pulled all the photos from my camera roll for the last few months. Adventures at home and out and about. Lots of food photos thrown in as well, because, well, we cook a lot around here. 

At this rate, I won't be posting again until after Thanksgiving (once a month posting seems to be my thing, lately), so I'll say now, have a wonderful holiday
Stay warm, stay safe, and enjoy turkey, all the fixings, and pie! 




  1. Love all the fall photos! Your babies are going so fast! Love reading your posts! Your window art reminds me of the art your mother would have on her windows in photos she used to post her blog. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours~ Diane

  2. I agree with Diane . . . your windows look like your moms! Such cute photos and your food always looks so delicious! I've heard that the fall colors in New England are some of the best. One day I might get there! Here in Idaho the leaves have all dropped, we've even had snow. Happy Thanksgiving!!! Barb
