Hi friends! You’re probably wondering where I’ve been lately. Well I’ve had some crazy things happen that have kept me away from sharing things I love with all of my favorite people. Last week I found a dog that almost got hit with a car. I picked it up and brought it home while advertising to find it’s owner. Two days later that happened! Having three dogs in the house was wonderful. I enjoyed it and didn’t want to give my new little furry friend away. But that’s how these things go! The night that I returned her to her owner I was planning on working on some posts to share which is when I had a terrible accident involving my foot and ankle. I don’t even know exactly how it happened because it all went so fast but I twisted it extremely bad. I thought that it was broke! I spent the rest of that night laying on the floor in pain and panicking because I thought that I’d never be able to run again. (Which was dumb.) It’s feeling slightly better now and I can limp around with it so I think that I’ll be just fine! It definitely set me back a bit though. But I’m back now and ready to share lots of pumpkin things! Starting with this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie.
Today marks the first day of the year that I had something pumpkin. I hobbled around the kitchen and was actually very productive! I have a lot of awesome recipes coming up so get excited for that! I was in such a good mood as I was combining ingredients, testing foods, having photo shoots, and even cleaning everything up. I love doing all of that and connecting with each one of you. It’s the best and I am so grateful for it!
But anyways, I’ve been thinking about a pumpkin pie smoothie for a while now and I just had to make it happen. It’s amazing. It tastes just like laying in a pumpkin patch on a cool evening while watching a beautiful sunset. Not sure what that tastes like? Well you better get yourself into the kitchen and make this smoothie then!
