September was pretty good to us around these parts.
It started with a kid-free weekend in Montreal to celebrate the wedding of two very good people.
I enjoyed four days in the city sun, sitting in cafés, eating late-night dinners, drinking wine and catching up with some of my favorite friends.
I also had this lemon coconut cupcake from one of my favorite bakeries on earth.
Back at home, I tried to will Fall to come by making a batch of this delicious, hearty chili.
Yes, I am still doing MyFitnessPal (and loving it!) and yes, this fit into my plan for the day.
One of us started life at a new school with flying colors.
100% on her first spelling and math tests.
One really good Tootsie Pop as a reward.
Did a little Fall cleaning and organizing in the beauty department.
One of us started life at a new preschool with not so flying colors.
This is his “I don’t want to go to school” face.
I see it every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning, along with an awful lot of tears.
But thankfully when I pick him up three hours later, it’s all smiles.
I ventured up to Los Angeles a few times for meetings and new opportunities and a much-welcomed change of pace.
Tried to visit an old friend at his new venture, but he wasn’t around so I made due with a delicious juice instead.
And I took in a nice, quiet lunch by myself.
Just me, a book and this incredible view.
Thank you, September for a lovely few weeks.
