The weather has been beautiful here in Connecticut. Fall has arrived and the leaves are beginning to turn. I snapped a couple of pictures with my phone when I was walking Sadie over the weekend. Isn’t this time of year just amazing?!

I was a happy mama this weekend. Both my children were home and we celebrated my mom’s birthday. It was so wonderful to have family together.

This coming we will be participating in the Walk for Alzheimer’s, in support of my mom. If you are local to Connecticut and would like to participate in the walk, please reach out to me.

This month seems to be flying by! I can’t believe that Halloween is just a couple short weeks away. To help us get ready, I am sharing some fun and festive ideas for your Halloween home and celebration.

Let’s get this party started!

Weekly Household Tip

Holiday baking time is just around the corner, so I thought I would share some baking tips with you each week. Last week I shared this simple tip to help keep brown sugar soft. I have another baking tip for you this week.

I always find that when baking, my recipes work well with butter that has been softened to room temperature. This usually means setting it out for about 45 minutes to give it time to soften.

If you forget, don’t worry! I have an easy tip that will help.

Just take a glass (one that will easily fit over the stick of butter) and fill it with hot water. Allow the water to sit in the glass for a few minutes. Then, pour the water out and cover the stick of butter with the warm glass for a couple of minutes. The heat from the glass will soften the butter. So simple!
