Autumn is now upon us. Where did summer actually go? I’m sitting here drinking coffee wearing a sweater of all things. I didn’t get to go back to Lake Michigan like I had planned and have barely been to the zoo. It just seems like there is too much to do in summer and it is as hard to grasp as pool water.

were a skirt b/c that is a super cute outfit.
Sweater is a thrifted Ann Taylor.
The only thing to be done is embrace fall. I do love fall, the smell and crispness in the air, the taste of tart apples, the way the light is all golden, even the sound of leaves skittering across the drive. And what is the best thing about colder weather? Comfort food that’s what!
|I love that the shirt pocket get’s used on the apron.|
I hate cooking in the summer but as cooler weather approaches I find myself wanting to make and eat hot soups, roast beef, cookies, home made bread, cookies and more cookies. So, to continue to celebrate the Second Time Challenge and as a symbolic gesture that I’m accepting the changing season I made these two aprons to give to two lucky readers. They’re made from mens dress shirts (I bought one at a garage sale and one at Good Will, how thrifty is that?) and were super fun and easy to make. All you have to do to win is leave a comment (on this blog) telling me what your favorite comfort food to make and or eat is. Let’s get inspired to spend some time in the kitchen, and you may end up with a cute apron to make it even more fun! The contest will run through Monday, just leave a comment, and if you sign in as a guest (so you don’t have to have account) be sure to leave your name. Good luck!
My favorite thing to cook is soup btw, I love to chop it and drop it. To get you started cooking this is a recipe for the best bean soup ever!
|Here is a picture of it on a person. Oh and that’s a “new” sweater
I’m going to get a lot of wearing in.
