Wearing a comfortable turtleneck sweater is a go-to for autumn and winter. If it isn’t your immediate choice for an outfit on a cold day, then there’s something not right. After all, it is called “sweater weather” for a reason.
It’s getting colder and life is getting busier. Busier as we get closer to Thanksgiving, to Christmas, to New Years, and to many new things. It can get stressful, but one just needs to remember to take a deep breath and keep on living because that’s what one should do. I feel like this is what autumn is all about: things start to fall so they can be re-born again. Take a stroll in the park and watch the leaves turn into different colors, wear warm sweaters, drink tea and read a book. It’s the little things that make life great.

It’s pumpkin season, and that’s a wonderful thing. I don’t think I’ve ever soon so many pumpkins! In all the supermarkets and grocery stores, there are pumpkins. I’m really enjoying it since Paris I didn’t really have the whole ‘pumpkin’ experience in Paris. Halloween isn’t that important over there either, but it’s starting to develop more. Now that I’m living in U.S., I just had to make the traditional pumpkin pie. I was quite surprised that it turned out good as it was my first try. I will most definitely be cooking up more of them throughout the years, and this recipe is just perfect.
