Spiced Apple Cream Cheese Danish

[Did I just rush from eating this to blogging about it? Yes, I did. I am that proud!]

I found this recipe at Annie's Eats one day while blog surfing and had been looking for an excuse to make it ever since. She made it so simple with plenty of pictures and very clear instructions so for all of you non-bakers [and I am definitely a non-baker] this was very easy.

And man this was amazing and received lots of thumbs up from the family! I think we've found a new holiday tradition.

New Knits

I haven't been knitting too much lately. That lack of inspiration I've talked about seems to have spread to my motivation to knit. But I did manage to finish this hat though it took me like two months which is very unusual for me.

I like it, but I think I made the brim a little too loose and I wish I'd used a more flexible yarn so it would hang down in the back.

Weekend Spontaneity

This past weekend, my friend Hayley and I decided to be spontaneous and meet up with each other in Portland, OR for a brief, but fantastic weekend. It was a long drive, but worth it just to spend some time with Hayley who I've missed dreadfully for months now.

We met up Saturday morning Hayley driving from Medford, OR and me from Spokane. We took the train into downtown Portland and walked around for hours enjoying the street market and eating yummy food.

We parted ways mid-afternoon Sunday and I already miss her so much I could cry! Hayley you will always be my favorite roommate. Please move to Spokane??

I love this time of year! Bright sunshine and chilly winds, multi-colored trees and pumpkin spice lattes.

Autumn Leaves

This is the view of Spokane I have everyday as I wind down from 5 Mile Prairie. It's fun to watch the panorama change as we move toward winter.
