A few days before our one year wedding anniversary, Josh and I hit the coast to “our beach.” The sky was overcast and there was a slight breeze which was a welcome change from the scorching hot days we’ve been getting in Portland. While we were walking down the beach to find a good spot, we came across a little driftwood shanty someone had put together. It already had a fire pit set up, a log bench, and log to lean against in front of the fire. We quickly claimed it for ourselves, started a fire, and had a little picnic. We may or may have not been seriously considering staying there and making it our permanent home!
I think it was that day at the beach that I caught Fall Fever.. I broke out the Halloween decorations the other day and I’m slowly putting them up throughout the house. I also had a baking day with my good friend Mary and her two daughters. On the menu: My Pumpkin Spice Chai Lattes, chai spice cupcakes (which although they were a disaster, they still tasted amazing!), and pumpkin spice cookies! It was a great way to start out my Recipes With Friends feature and the Friday Failures feature as well! Check back on Friday for a good laugh to see my cupcake fail.
There’s been some slow, but steady progress on my half-year resolutions that I mentioned in the last Daily Life. I’ve been going to the gym on a regular basis for the last week… which helps balance out my Ben and Jerry’s addiction.. and I’ve reached out to a few web designers about revamping Tattooed Martha. The only goal I haven’t made progress on is changing everything over to my married name. It’s like voluntarily getting a root canal! I’ll do it soon, I promise!
Well I’ve got a full day of cooking ahead so that’s all I have for you now, but I want to hear who else has caught Fall Fever! What part of fall are you looking forward to most? Favorite fall recipes? Leave a comment below and have a happy Wednesday!
