I cannot believe it is November... this year has seriously flown by. It has definitely been a busy year for us with all the travels. It is nice that work will allow you to escape from home for a weekend every now and again! Just this past weekend, David's work sent him to Sewanee, Tennessee, and of course we made a trip of it! We spent one night on the campus of the University of the South, which is absolutely beautiful, then made the short drive to Atlanta to meet up with some friends.
Some images from the campus...
Now that we are settled back home, it is time to start planning for Christmas... I can't believe it's almost that time of year again! Time to start shopping :) When November rolls around, I always get into a 'holiday' mood, and there are always certain things that I LOVE!!!!
Here is a list of a few favorites...
Teavana Chai Mate, with a spoonful of agave nectar.
The smell of Pumpkin Spice filling my home.
Chobani organic greek yogurt.
Having a Trader Joe's in my neighborhood!!!

Emeril's recipe for Bayou Chicken Pasta - google it, make it, LOVE IT! Seriously, it's so good!
