Halloween Dreams.

Do you ever have those days when the aroma in the air reminds you of something you really don't want to think about? I wish I could escape my life today and trade it for a simpler place of warmth and peace.  Something in the air today, on this Halloween is just not sitting right with me.  It reminds me of a time in my past I want to forget.  So I dove into the last Twilight book today- really, as i said before, the only place I can truly escape to when nothing else works.  But there are a few things that make me feel happy that I found today.
I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."- Marilyn Monroe

4 Things I love that I just bought:



So, I really wanted to make something from Cupcakesandcashmere today, and my mom and I decided on these popovers with strawberry (cherry) butter.  Though they turned out perfectly, the recipe was like reading a book.  I'm pretty sure my mom never will want to bake with me again since I got so stressed out.  When it comes to baking I measure everything exactly, and it becomes a bit stressful.  Yet, somehow I always forget some important ingredient.  Nevertheless, these were a-ma-zing! I told my mom I felt like Julie and Julia (though I've never seen it) because I was trying to make the strawberry butter and she made it look so easy on her blog, but I had butter all over me and mine looked so bad.  I made cherry butter, so I'll just blame it on the difference in color.   The end result after all the stress however was therapeutic, and made me oh so happy on this chilly October day.


Play Pretend.

One of my favorite things about Christmas time when I was a little girl was curling up underneath the tree and staring up into the lights.  This time of change is scary, and I'm surprisingly excited for the winter season because I feel this need to hold onto anything that makes me feel safe and comfortable.  My brothers and I growing up made the most massive, amazing tents in our basement, and I hold onto that feeling of safety that "home" brings me.
