Life has been pretty calm around here, and I am not complaining. We had such a busy summer, with lots of traveling and socializing around Chicago, so I've welcomed the slower pace that came with the changing of seasons. Also, starting a new position at work a couple weeks ago has me working more "retail hours", which means fewer free weekends for hanging out with friends. I've been embracing this cozy time around the house, since i know in a few weeks it will officially be holiday season, with all the craziness that that entails.
|The condo is looking slightly festive these days.|
|I finally found an R at Anthropologie (they're always sold out!),|
and I added it to our slowly growing gallery wall.
|On a recent Sunday when we were both off work, |
this guy worked some serious magic in the kitchen.
I LOVE sitting back and letting him take over!
|Joe chose a french menu for the dinner, and made these pork and sage |
stuffed veal rolls. So fancy, and delicious, too!
|Cozy fall dinner.|
|I've been busy in the kitchen, too!|
Just playing with my mini blowtorch, no biggie.
|Nutella Creme Brulee.|
(Need I say more?)
I hope your fall has been cozy and calm. Here's to a little more quiet time before the busy holiday season begins!
