It was a quieter week around here last week, and I’m super happy to be back posting again.  The boy and I were spending our days hiking, trail running and figuring out how to stay dry and warm and it was a nice reprieve from our usual.  Sometimes a break and lots of time outside, just soaking up nature and fresh air make the heart a little happier.  And if you want a great way to start your Tuesday, enjoy these posts and then scroll down to the pictures at the end.  There’s nothing like nature’s natural beauty to make you smile!

Harvest Soup and Raw Hemp Heart Bread

When I was 10 years old, I went on a canoe trip with my dad and my uncle. It was a trip down the St. Croix River in Maine, and it was my first time being in the United States. Not only were we canoeing on a three day overnight trip in the US, but the trip had a waterfall we were going to canoe down and I couldn’t quite contain my excitement for all of these pending adventures. I talked about it for weeks. Continue reading

If you haven’t guessed yet, fall is my favourite time of year.  From the fall food and flavours to the fall temperatures to the beautiful fall colours and warm cozy sweaters, I’ll take it over any other season any day.  And it’s also my favourite time to be outside, spending the days hiking and running, getting up early in the crisp air and falling asleep to the cool fall breeze.   Continue reading

Lemon Poppyseed Doughnuts

It’s true.  It’s time for doughnuts again.  And while they are nothing related to fall, with no pumpkin or apple or cinnamon or apple cinnamon around, they’re good enough that it doesn’t even matter.  I had a doughnut pan sitting in my cart on Amazon for weeks.  Finally, about a month ago, I made the purchase.  I don’t even have any good reason why I was Continue reading
