Living in south Texas, you try to get use to the very long summers and even shorter falls/winters. Right before we get a little reprieve from the weather – temps become horrendous. So, any drop on the thermometer is celebrated like a long lost friend and the desire for all things pumpkin, autumn hues and fire pits become happy events.

Granted, autumn hues here just means the poor tree is dying, but I digress.

Look at all that pumpkin goodness!!

I shared this recipe on my personal facebook page and one of my sweet friends made these easy goodies with her children. Guess, what? They were a winner with the kiddos!

They chose to double the batch and share with neighbors. How wonderful is that?

Thanks Tonya for the fun photos! Family time is absolutely everything, don’t you agree?

With all the crazy running around that has been going on here, I sure am looking forward to a few nights sitting around the firepit having memorable conversations and listening to great music. It’s what I would call intentional living.

I hope you are able to seize precious moments to take in all that is so very good in life. Happiness has a way of spreading, why not be the starting point?
