We put pumpkins on our stoop this week so I guess I’ll finally accept fall. And the fact that it’s soup season, my favorite part of October-March. I made the first soup on this list on Monday and then this chicken pot pie soup on Wednesday and both were a hit with the whole family.
I am feeling a little overwhelmed with life and emotions and a bunch of things going on right now so I don’t have much else to share today but hoping that the weekend gives me the recharge I need.
Have a great weekend! xx
