It’s that time of year again where I’ll have to fill my children’s Advent box. Sure, I could just buy Advent calendars from the store to make my life easier. But they’re just not the same. To me, it’s not just about chocolates or little toys in those little windows. It’s also about doing things and spending time together as a family during Advent.
Birthday parties – Aaarghh! Not that I don’t like celebrating my kids’ birthdays, I do! But the whole concept of party planning and organizing, who to invite, types of food to serve, presentation, games, party favors, etc is just exhausting. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve done parties before for my eldest. Weeks or even months before, I’ll be browsing through the internet and Pinterest searching for ideas. Then I’ll be printing, cutting, coloring, pasting, stringing, etc at night, just because the shops do not sell party decor for the theme she chose.
It’s officially pumpkin season again! It felt like just yesterday was all about ice-cream and light salads. I for one, like everything to do with pumpkin. In soups, muffins, pancakes, bread, whatever I can think of. And one thing I couldn’t live without in my salads, is pumpkin seed oil.
