Our thanksgiving looks way different than I imagined this year. My mom is currently in a coma fighting for life. Thank you for all of your kindness and well wishes. My mom would be so happy to know that I have so much support and good people in my life. Thank you ❤️

If you’re feeling stressed this week, remember to STOP & TAKE A MOMENT! Collect yourself before you rush into the store to pick up last minute things. Breathe! Be thankful that we can all still find beauty in the everyday. Sending you some extra ✨ from CA today!apeptalkforwhenyouneedon

My family's favorite meals are usually ones that include toppings! We're having my Turkey White Bean Chili with cornbread and melted @Tillamook Farmstyle Cut Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese for dinner this week. Cooper LOVES these Cheese shreds and I love that they’re made with the highest-quality milk! _partner

HOUSE RULE: Don’t go to bed with a messy kitchen. Sometimes Mondays kick your butt. Sometimes you just need to blast some music & clean it out. Set a timer for 20 mins and you might get on a roll! apeptalkforwhenyouneedone

Today while I was looking them up to draw, I found out ginkgo trees have been around since the dinosaurs. They were also the first tree to pop up after the bombings of Hiroshima. The ginkgo is a symbol of strength, hope & resilience 💛

Heavy on the butter light on the syrup... maybe add some apricot jam on it...wrap it all up and make a sandwich. That was my breakfast. Yes to this morning light! (These are the Everyday Pancakes from my blog) shutterbeanbreakfast

The mess in Sonoma is equally matched with love and gratitude. We were blown away to see so many beautiful handmade signs alongside the roads thanking everyone who helped. Support the community by visiting! We did today. ❤️✨

We almost always have tuna salad (mayo free! Recipe on my blog) in the fridge so we can whip up quick lunches while we work from home. Today I added arugula, @sonomabrinery dill garlic kraut (my all time fave!) and chips. Toast grilled in our panini press ✌🏼shutterbeanmealprep in action!
