blairita : Yyyyeeesss! 😍
kristinrafel : Adding that to the list of must visit places next time we are in DC! Pecan pie is my favorite!

Can I tell you a secret? I've already read most of the @naptimediaries advent journal. But I am saving the beautiful cards as a gift to open December 1st. Today is the VERY last day to place your order (3pm est!) and you will be so glad. The wisdom shared from @jessaconnolly @rachkincaid @thebalancedwife @rebeccasmithonline (and her husband) and @nicksconnolly, it's all so good. #ntdadvent

We are all feeling a bit run down this week. So I am cooking leftovers for dinner (no prep!) and enjoying this view. One of my favorite ways to boost my own spirits is to write letters to others. What is your go-to pick me up?
betherejess : Such a gorgeous view. My pick me up is running out to grab a cup of coffee ( or steamed milk πŸ˜‰)
jenmigonis : So gorgeous. Baking or creating something beautiful. :)
withwildlove : A hard cider and cooking an elaborate meal. Something about the rhythm of making up a recipe focuses my busy mind. 😊
pagejc : πŸ·πŸ™Š

A couple times a month I cook a whole chicken in the crockpot -- rotisserie chicken at home + broth = major win. As I prep the seasoning, it reminded me of the layered sand art I loved as a kid. Tell me you made these glass jar beauties too.
thelittlekitchenrecipes -
cassidylrobinson : I did! I did! πŸ™‹ Mmm that seasoning looks like it smells soo good!!
sonjalranslow : Thanks so much!
sonjalranslow : What do you do with leftovers? I always make a chicken pot pie a few days later!
thescribblepad : @cassidylrobinson YEA!
thescribblepad : @sonjalranslow I use it in everything! Chicken tacos, chicken pot pie, curried chicken salad, chicken noodle soup, and the boys eat it plain. I throw the bones back in the cooking liquid, add water and cook for 12 hours to make bone broth too!
sonjalranslow : Oh those are great ideas! I will definitely make the bone broth next time, I never thought of that!
thelittlekitchn : Yay!!! 😍😍😍
lybritt : Thank you!!

This tiny corner of my home is like a retreat. It's always clean, the art inspires me, and the plant was a gift from a former intern who lived with us. Today has been hard, so I am focusing in on the beautiful. This means putting on blinders to the mess, the dishes, the noise (!) the apples going bad and focusing on what is true, one square inch at a time.
thescribblepad : Also, does anyone know what kind of plant this is?
shannon_oertle : No idea about the plant- but I feel like this with fresh flowers πŸ™ Hang in there mama! 😘 Solo parenting is tough!
locamocca85 : Since it has no flowers I can't say for sure but looks like azalea
thescribblepad : @locamocca85 it does look like and azalea, but it's not...
locamocca85 : Does it have flowers ?
josieortega : New painting!
liasfarmlife : So lovely!

This cutie is refusing sleep. Straight up refusing. #hudsonmark
hudsonmark -
hkouwen : I'm sorry. He sure is cute, though!
becbea : We're having sleep struggles right now, too. Nap time is fine, but he wakes up at 4 or 5. Any suggestions?
emilyamccord : Aaahh. You mean it continues...??
thescribblepad : @becbea since Hudson has been up since 3am, nope! I've got nothing.
becbea : 4 am play date? Your not place or mine? #morecoffeeplease
klogan09 : I've heard whispers of an "18mo sleep regression" Praying timo skips it!
lissalit : But he is so cute doing it!
