Hello everyone! Sorry this post is a day late. My friend had a proposal planned, that got cancelled and post-poned last minute to yesterday. (She was literally texting brett and I at 9pm the night before planning it out with us). So my day was dedicated to helping make the moment perfect and photographing it happening live! (It was SO exciting to be a part of that, thanks Jessie!). Anyway, I made an instagram post wednesday you may or may not have seen about Brett and I moving! We got an offer to stay here until May 1st 2018. It’s perfect because we were trying to look for a place in literally the hardest time to find a place during the year. So now we’ll be able to take our time to find a place after here. It is a beautiful, rustic, vintage homestead that is like a tiny hotel with 5 bedrooms (but the size of a house). They usually have it up on AirBnB, and have weddings here! It’s absolutely incredible to say I live here. We have a beautiful bedroom, and right outside of it is a cute little reading nook by a window that looks out onto the lake! So there’s a lake in my backyard. No biggie.
I can’t wait for all the recipes I’m going to make in this kitchen and photos I’m going to take in this house. There are so many options! I’m definitely going to miss living here when we leave, but I’ll be happy we got to have it for as long as we did, and had this amazing opportunity! I’ve been busy moving so the following recipe wasn’t made in the new place (I made it before the moving shenanigans began). But I decided to go for a very fall-esque recipe. I’m loving the weather and the smell of the cold, crisp autumn air. I was feeling like a big bowl of yum and warmth – and that’s how this recipe was born!
This property is so beautiful I’ve already done an engagement shoot, and planning another shoot with one of my friends who’s going to model for me! There’s a little path that goes halfway around the lake and you can walk to the end of it and see the house from the other end. Even though it’s incredibly beautiful, it’s also a tad creepy here. It’s an old house, and at night everything’s dark and creaky. It would be a good spot to have a halloween party, that’s for sure! If I have time to plan one, I just might!
I’ll update you on how living here is going and all the fun things we do in my next post. For now, enjoy this fall harvest dish, and I hope you are all having a great october so far!
If you make this recipe, I’d love to hear about it! Leave a comment below, or take a photo and tag it on instagram or twitter with #itscrunchthyme
