how to slow down this fall?!

it's hard to be in a good mood when there is lack of sun! it's dark in the morning when you're going to work and it is dark when you're going back home. it's getting colder and colder and the evenings are long; sometimes too long with bored kids. 

fall days can be really rough to cope with; so how to survived those days and long evenings and make them worth waiting for!? 

often we put ourselves in survival mode and we're just waiting for Spring to come back soon; 
but fall days can also be filled with warmth, smiles and a lot of sun not necessary the real one!

1. warm light

    good light is all you need. there is so many cool lamps which you can surround yourself with
    and make your home cozy and bright. 

2.  candels

     it's a must have. 
     scented candles are perfect if you need to relax after a long day or if you just need to feel                     warm and safe. candles always help, they create a perfect atmosphere.

3. cozy home accessories

    buy yourself a lot of soft and fluffy blankes and pilllows. arrange your home with it, to feel more        homey! wrap yourself in and don't forget about rugs on bare floors.

4. warm drinks

    hot tea, mulled wine and cocoa. everything in beautiful mug.
    even a hot coffee in a cold morning will makes you feel much better and ready for a day.

5. clothes

    wear comfy, thick socks at least at home.
    oversize sweaters and cardigans, pyjamas and fluffy slippers.
     also uggs for life ;)

6. family and friends time

    plan a board games night with your close ones or read a book to your kids.
    prepare delicious meal and eat together around the table.

7. offline mode

    turn off your phones, computers and tv's. go for a long walk with your family. read books, talk with your loves ones, listen to music. enjoy the simple pleasures!

recipe from the woods - sweet pumpkin soup

today i pop in here, to share with you my recipe for very quick and easy pumpkin soup.

the recipe is very simple! you can make it from just a regular pumpkin or hokkaido pumpkin.

what you need:

- small pumpkin
- half glass (100ml) of water
- 2tbs of brown suger
- 1tbs of unsalted butter
- half glass (100ml) of milk
- 1ts of cinnamon

if you want to make a vegan version you don't need to add butter and you can change milk for almond one or other.

cut the pumpkin into pieces and add half glass of water. boil it slowly till the pumpkin will be soft and creamy. 
then add milk. you can add more milk or less, it depends, if you want to get a very creamy soup or not. then add 2tbs of suger and 1ts of cinnamon and 1tbs of butter. 
mix everything gently and it's ready! 

you can eat it with some pasta (like my daughter) or without anything. 

Bon Appetit!

memories of the summer

October is here but we still thinking about last summer. it was a good one!!! even though the weather was mostly rainy, it was still great summer! a lot of adventures a long the way, lots of ice-creams, smiles and crys. family time, parents getaways, bbq's and dancing till the sunrise. running barefoot on fresh cut grass (thanks hub) and watermelons, tons of it! 

caught in the pouring rain!
 one of the best memories of last summer :)

afternoon naps... still going on strong ;)

thank you summer for being so awesome for us! we already counting months to the next one!
