October Link Love

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.
