Ya’ll! I am in cozy pumpkin heaven! All is well here in Vermont, and I am happier than I have been in years! The four seasons appeal to me, we’ll be back in Florida sometime before Christmas (and if it was down to me I would touch down not one minute earlier than December 23 but sadly Mr. Deer does not feel the same way), but I am just loving fall here. I still haven’t had a chance to take any pix of our place, but rest assured, it is hygge (if a little shabby around the edges if you look too closely). But the whole lifestyle here is just so wonderful, early nights, everything is so low-key, and lots and lots of eating! I have baked and cooked so much (the fact that the same gallon of milk that costs $4.99 in Ft. Lauderdale costs $1.55 here might have something to do with it), but I finally got all the spices to make tikka masala here, I’m doing homemade pizza at the weekend and I just started a chocolate cinnamon tres leches cake that is currently chilling in the fridge (and in all honesty I realized that I’m kind of obsessed with my weight, cooking and eating so much food is great but I’ve been more worried about my waistline than I should be, does anyone else feel me?) I’m actually not joking I’m mildly concerned about it, but I’m trying to just go with the flow, I no longer live in South Florida where everyone has butt lifts and weighs 100 pounds! Yay!

Anyway, just a little update and some inspiring pix to go with, thank you to all my clients and readers, it’s you guys that allowed me to save up enough money to buy our little condo here and I am truly forever grateful for that!

So if you have a good fall recipe, you worry about gaining weight more than you really should or you have a hidden New England spot I should check out, hit me up in the comments, I’d love to hear!
