We have finally been blessed with some pretty awesome neighbors! I grew up in a neighborhood where we were more like a family rather than neighbors. Kids were constantly running the streets, parents were always together and you could go to a neighbor’s house for anything from a basketball to a loaf of bread.
On Tuesday, I posted a recipe for pumpkin cranberry pancakes that I whipped up over the weekend. I made a double batch and ended up with more batter than I wanted for breakfast that day, though. So, instead of tossing it, I threw these simple ingredients that I had on-hand in the bowl and hoped for the best. The result is an amazing (and easy!) cranberry chocolate pumpkin oatmeal muffin combo that make the perfect healthy substitute for granola bars, snacks, and desserts.

It’s pumpkin season! Usually I try to wait until October to pumpkin-flavor all the things, but I was really excited this weekend and just couldn’t wait. I modified a regular pumpkin pancake recipe to include clean ingredients and cranberries (my fav!) and was amazed at how easy it was!
Seven and a half months can feel like an eternity, especially when you are pregnant. I feel as if I have been with child for a solid year. I am the type of person who always feels as if I have to be working on something and so this shift in my daily routine has been somewhat challenging.

Today is the International Day of Peace. And a world that seems to have lost its ever-loving mind, it’s exactly what we need more of. Gandhi famously said be the change you wish to see in the world. That doesn’t mean that each one of us have to become Mother Theresa – which is good because I’m a big fan of my skinny jeans. What it does mean is that if we see something wrong in the world, we should lead by example in changing that. No, we can’t each solve every problem. But, if there is one perk to overpopulation, it’s that there are plenty of us out there who can get to work on try to changing at least a few. So today, on International Day of Peace, here is a friendly reminder of simple adjustments we can all make in our daily lives that can send positive ripples and vibrations throughout the world. And they don’t cost a thing.
