Make aheaad in the slow cooker, set it out … they will come! :)

Friends, you probably know by now my love for bringing the outdoors in, for decorating simply. We live in a small home, and our living space (one great room) consists of the kitchen, living room, and dining room. Which is why it’s a “great” room. Not great because it’s large, but great because this is where we live.

And cozy, the perfect place to sit and enjoy a bowl of this easy slow cooker soup!

So much of life happens in this space. I couldn’t be happier. In fact, give me a large home where our family is all spread out, and only coming together to eat— that would be very sad.

On a hike, Paul snagged a manzanita branch for me. It sat on my sideboard during the holidays, and then hung here for a few meals.

I think home decorating is a fun way to reveal your personality. You can be creative and use what you have, search the great outdoors, buy brand new, go to thrift stores, Craigslist (which, by the way, did you know we sold our last home on Craigslist in 22 days?), yard sales, or … go to Target.

These cute soup bowls. Swoon! I bought 6 white and 6 green. You can buy these Mini Bowl Reactive Glaze – Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia – HERE [afflink]

Favorite gingham cloth napkins and a hanging manazanita branch. Fun!

One the easiest chicken noodle soups you will ever make! It’s loaded with veggies, fennel (my favorite for soup), Italian spices, DeLallo’s ricotta + spinach tortellini, and fresh spinach!

A weeknight staple for sure.

The last 15 minutes (like when the guests walk in the door), and add the tortellini and spinach.

A BIG pot of soup, served with shaved Parmesan cheese – so good.
