On a different note, I am ecstatic about the approaching holiday season! I've already been thinking about everything I want to cook over Thanksgiving break (i.e., everything I want Morgan to cook). I'm thinking maybe this Pioneer Woman pumpkin (or, as she calls it, "punkin") soup:
I'm also thinking about these orange blossom cupcakes with cashew cream, although that might call for about 50 ingredients that I know for a fact are not in the kitchen at home:
But more than anything, I'm excited to be with family. I'm excited to have someone to sleep with every night (yes, Morgan and I still sleep in the same bed) and excited to have real, home cooked food every day.
Still, I don't want to wish time away. I am legitimately alarmed at how fast this year has gone by, so I feel like I need to do a better job of soaking everything in. What a great excuse for more "special occasions," more long talks over glasses of (cheap) red wine, and more moments with Jesus. Because, really, aren't those what make life so good?
