The Little Boy Who Preferred Pumpkin Pie (& Other Such Fall Niceties)

By Selena Mae |

Last weekend was Thanksgiving on Canadian soil. A holiday I have mixed feelings about, but very thankful for the life I now live and the children I’ve been blessed to have. The ones I never thought I’d have. They’ve turned into great explorers with mature taste-buds and are fearless at heart. Fall is a time of year all of the harvest is coming in and we’re left with no choice but to feast and celebrate. To soak in every last drop of that finite mix of cool air meets warm sun.

We’ve been off on many a great adventure these past couple of weeks and there’s a lot of cute to catch up on. There is a little boy who relished in his first taste of pumpkin pie (you can find my recipe here), and actually preferred it over apple. There is a tiny girl who runs everywhere, at lightening speed – tumbling all over the place and hollering in the face of anyone who tries to stop her.

And then there’s just me, documenting this daily delight and savouring every. Last. Drop.

It’s what helps me glide less than gracefully through all of the daily meltdowns, the boob drop-kicks, the food hurling and the siblings driving each-other bat-shit crazy. It’s fun-time / crazy-time over at the Mills homestead, join us in our fall-time adventuring…
