Blood Orange Mocktail

I’m so excited to hand out candy on Friday. I was so bummed last year when we got only 1 trick or treater. Now that we live in a big neighborhood I’m expecting a lot of kids. I went out this weekend and bought a ton of candy. If they don’t show then more candy for me I suppose :)

It’s amazing what a difference a piece of wood and a different window have made in my pictures! When I was in London I didn’t have the space for this kind of prop and in Connecticut I didn’t have great light. I’m not a great photographer. I pretty much just play with the dials on my camera to get the shot I want. I want to learn more but haven’t had the time since I have so many other hobbies! Now that I’ve improved on two important elements, color and light, my photos instantly look better. My favorite photo I’ve taken so far is being posted next week.

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Hard to believe that this is the first time I’ll be having Thanksgiving on American soil since 2000. I was a junior in high school that year and just got my learners permit. That makes me feel really old now. I’m easing myself back into the tradition this year. I’m going to my sisters house in New Hampshire. We’re getting up a dawn and driving over there from Connecticut on Thursday morning. I’m keeping my fingers crossed it doesn’t snow too hard.

By the time this goes live I will have been in Connecticut for three days. I am most likely feeling completely overwhelmed and stressed out. I hope this is the last big move we’ll make for several years. I don’t reccomend moving to another continent for the sake of your sanity. Only other expats will understand the headaches and frustration of trying to fit your international life into forms meant for normal people (I don’t have a state to fill in and no, I don’t have a ten digit phone number)!

Brown Butter M&M Brookies

So the big day is only four days away! I can’t believe that it’s really happening and that I’m actually leaving London. It still doesn’t feel real. I don’t think it will sink in until we’ve moved into our new rental house. I’m so excited to go shopping and kit out our new place. It’s going to be expensive but I’m hoping to invest in some nice kitchen equipment that will last for many years.
