Something happened this week. All of my efforts to embrace the beauty of the season came together, getting over being sick, having an only-normally-crazy week that made it a little easier to make important family rituals happen, to chase beauty, and just plain live the beauty of my life.
The sky was such a rich blue, and the leaves were glowing in the sun’s rays.
Even though we started school late (still sleeping in while bodies finish healing) we made it out for a good portion of the afternoon. And just played together.
Swinging and soaking up the sun and crisp breeze. Snuggled up with alternating kids as they took turns jumping… it was a delicious fall afternoon. I am so glad I stopped to live it.
Did you remember to live autumn today?!
Sugar Challenge Update: Day 2. I totally woke up craving sugar in the middle of the night. I did not give in! I rewarded myself with these muffins for breakfast. These are super low carb, with about 1/4 tbs of maple syrup per muffin.
This is my go-to muffin recipe right now. It’s from Katie Kimball’s Health Snacks to Go e-book. Only I cut the syrup in half, and add 3 tiny scoops of stevia powder, and I added fresh raspberries.
