Simple meals... theslow cooker is my new best friend, especially on our horse back riding days. We come home cold, tired and hungry... and sit right down to a hot dinner. Tacos are the current fave using this recipe. Prep time is 5 minutes!
Simple costumes... my daughter wanted us to be a mama and baby snowy owl for Halloween. I bought this pattern, but ended up using it for inspiration instead of following the exact templates. I just cut free hand... and gave myself permission to wing it. And speaking of wings... the very gorgeous scalloped wings, that are all the rage online in owl costuming overwhelmed me with the lengthy making sessions they would entail. Two sets of wings meant I needed to scale down. We will both be wearing white no-sew ponchos... embracing minimalism for all its beauty. Yes, I am!
So tonight, when you're scrambling to get dinner into kids and costumes on, go easy. Don't complicate anything unnecessarily. And I will be working to do just the same.
