I can't believe we are here at the end of October already. I love fall, it's my favorite season! I love the crisp, cool air. I love the beautiful colors of the trees. I love fall recipes--pies, all things pumpkin, cider! Yum! See below for some great recipes.
My family was able to take a nice vacation this month. You can read about that here.
And per tradition, we visited the pumpkin patch and took our annual picture.
This month, on the blog, I shared my Chicken Broth and Smoothie recipes. Many thanks to Real Food Outlaws for including my smoothie recipe in one of their Weekly Real Food Meal Plans this month! I shared about finding a lump and finding healing from dermatitis; the latter turned out to be the most-viewed post for the month.
On the topic of essential oils, I shared a post on oils to use for pain, and a post on the many benefits of Rosemary. If you missed any of these, you can follow the links to read more.
