This black walnut cutting board and tea time spoon, exquisitely handcrafted by Emily of Board & Bread. I think they’re the prettiest things I own. I’m dreaming of developing my skills in artful food photography (once I find time—once my daughters are grown?!) and imagining I will feature these items often.

This Pumpkin Spice Warm Up the Day tea, which has been my go-to to start my mornings this week. A small comfort amidst the harrying demands of my mothering days.

This little bowl of pudding-thick drinking chocolate. It was so rich that I saw fit to tone it down…with cream. Recipe here. I used a 100% cacao baking bar, where she uses bittersweet chocolate, so it was not overly sweet.

Putting out the first of the Christmas decorations. When I took my daughters to the flower shop with me in search of garlands, the ladies expressed surprise that we were already decorating. Yet, this feels like a late start for us; I’m pretty sure we began before Halloween last year!
