My Everyday Life Week 48

Here’s what this past week looked like- My Everyday Life Week 48

Our Thanksgiving table for 4!

We had my Dad over and I cooked for all of us. It was so weird not having a potluck!

I also set this table. I put a goat plate out for my Mom (she was a Capricorn).

Her absence in the kitchen is the greatest grief trigger. We used to be such a good team. 

Now it’s just me.

I felt her sparkle though. I’m glad we got to spend so many holidays together.

I mapped out my plan of attack.

Making a braised turkey is such a stress reliever. So easy!

Just a LITTLE cheese plate.

The spread! Sweet potatoes for my Dad. Mashed potatoes for my husband. Dinner rolls for my child.

This kid ate turkey and a dinner roll (or three).

I made an apple pie and a pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin pie for breakfast is nice.

Cooper was off of school this week. He had a craving for doughnuts so I made him these Buttermilk Farm Stand Doughnuts from my blog. They were delicious. I won the cool Mom award that day.

Waiting in line at the grocery store.  I’ve been seeing daisies all week.


This week we had a bunch of trees trimmed/cut down on our property.

My week ran to the soundtrack of chainsaws.

A pep talk on the way to the garage.

This week I spent a lot of time packing up orders from my Etsy Shop.

I love writing everyone’s name on their package.

It feels like magic.

Imagining my work in other people’s hands.

The best part is when I start seeing people receive their packages and share it on their Instagram feeds.

My mantle in between seasons.

I put blueberries in my waffle.

I went for a walk on the 3rd anniversary of my Mom’s death this week.

The sparkles on the water made me happy.

I saw my friend Amanda’s name and then she texted me right after. I love those weird magical moments in life.

I added a little something in our yard.

It was a nice moment. I wish I could hug my Mom.

He might end up with hazel eyes like my Mom. Who knows!

I have some pretty flowers still growing!

These two have such a weird relationship.

He is a fan of matcha lattes.

How an only child occupies his time while his parents work from home.

Nothing better than a runny egg on good toast.

He put on my glasses. I love him.

Morning light with my boys.

Sometimes I just stare at him while he watches TV.

Family driving adventure!

We got to see the sunset.

And the moon rise.

Rosie is a basket case.

I found the tiniest sliver of light on our dining room table yesterday.
