Friends, November is the month when everyone will be home, and we’ll be gathering in our “great room” and kitchen area, which will be nice and cozy.

Cozy and warm, like these Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Cookies that I just pulled out of the oven. I will totally be sharing these with our neighbors and a few friends.

The best way to store pumpkin cookies (because they are so soft) is to layer the cookies between sheets of parchment or waxed paper in an airtight container.

Our living space is not huge in our mountain home. We’re hosting 14 for Thanksgiving in a few weeks, and we’ll have to add in an extra table, and squeeze everyone in. We will be snug as bug in a rug, and I’m really looking forward to it. (We finally replaced our ceiling fan!)

Haggis and Alder will sit at our feet, as usual, patiently waiting for some small morsel to fall their way. (Haggis was napping off to the side of this pic.)

A  cozy home

Three years ago we began to think about the possibilities of downsizing and moving to central Oregon. It’s hard to imagine now that it could have been otherwise. We love the climate, the slower-paced living (although we’ve had a busy fall with lots of travels), a cozy home (we got rid of a lot of stuff), and cultivating new relationships. Thinking about it turned into actually doing it.

The process of uprooting our family, and mapping out a new life plan for our family, took courage! I’m glad we considered the risks, but we went for it anyway.

Achieving integrity between what we believe and how we live is a lifetime journey. We felt like moving to an area where we could have the outdoors at our fingertips, would be inspiring to our everyday growth and even our busy jobs.

In case someone stops by

Even with distractions, work, and travels, we love it when people drop in to visit, and stay for dinner. Or we plan ahead and get a dinner invite on the calendar.

Blessings follow when you step out in faith. Which is what I’m encouraging you to do, whatever that may be.
